How did he get hold of your money?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
I sent it coz I am vulnerable have mental health issues and he blackmailed me said things and didn't come true it's over 3,000
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Said he was helping me but no he was just after money just took me used me and took a hold of cash off me and I've struggled for years coz of him
Expert:  james bruce replied 15 days ago.

Understood. Then you need to report this again to the police as an offence of controlling and coercive behaviour, and if he is not making threats report that as well.

Unfortunately if you gave him the money rather than load the money then it is unlikely that will be able to be claimed back.

I would also advise seeking a formal non molestation order against him.

This is a court injunction to ban him contacting oy, coming near you etc.

If he breaches eh order he will be arrested and could go to prison.

The order can be applied for on line

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
It wasn't given in cash mostly through bank so there is proof of it
Expert:  james bruce replied 15 days ago.

I understand, but was the money given to him, or loand to him, or did he take it from your bank without you knowing
