Need Help, Scammed

Recently scammed with a fake check. It was returned and now I am out $2500 dollars. I checked the ip address which is 209.85.220.41. I looked it up but it seems to be a common address for other scams. If you have any information or could track it further any help is appreciated.

Unfortunately, the sender's IP address is not included in the headers. The IP is that of a Google mail server, not the other user.

Are you still in correspondence with this person?
