Unfortunately, Google does not include the sender's IP address in the email headers.

What was the con?

About all you can do is report the theft to your local law enforcement and the platform where you and the buyer met.

The lesson for people reading this is: If someone pays via check, go to the bank it was drawn on to cash it OR wait at least 10 days after depositing it before assuming it's good.
