I would contact the police in the town where you handed her the money.

My first question is how did she collect money?, Then Why? or what for? Was there a contract for purchase or lease? Sounds like fraud is possible and to start the police should be contacted and a report filed. I appreciate your concerns and I hope this makes the public aware to be careful on who you deal with. California Department of Real Estate has a web site for verification purposes. " http://;" Was that a typo? CRE vs. DRE?
Also note that if something sounds to good to be true, it may not be!
I hope you get results and money back Walter

You may not get much information here, but here are my suggestions:

1. Find her licence information here:
2. You need to contact the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department (if the property is in an unincorporated area) or the City Police Department where the property is located. You need to file a report with them.
3. There are very few DRE investigators in California and your best bet is to file with the local police.
4. Without knowing how she collected the money from you that is all I have. If it was sent to an escrow company, then contact them. If you dealt with her alone and sent the money to her trust account, then keep pushing for answers from the DRE, but stand by for a long wait.

Good Luck,
