Here is an update. I found the transaction where the money came out of my checking account and went into my new account with them in Jan, 2019. I sent him a copy of this. He got back on a Friday and said he would be in touch the next week (last week). Last week came and went. No response. I pinged on him today and he said he is working on it. No detail or reason given for not returning the money after 2 months. I am still being patient but will soon request you label them as a scam if you haven't already.
