Legal Question in Criminal Law in District of Columbia

I was deceived by someone through the web. I saw Ad on Craigslist about housing. I contacted the alleged owner and we sign a contract to rent the place. After I wired transfer the money to his maneger account, I never heard back from him again. The apartment is in DC. I wired transfered from the State of Kuwait. The bank that I transfered the money to is in Tennessee !

I have approve that the name was used is the name of the owner of that place, but i have no prove that the person I was dealing with is the owner himself not someone pretending to be him. And, I do have the name and bank account details of who he referred to as his manager accountant.

I filed a claim to The Internet Crime Complaint Center IC3

And to

The Federal Trade Commission

And for two months I haven't heard from them.

What should I do ?
