My question involves business law in the state of: New York

In September of 2010 I bought a route, it was a legitimate route I checked out everything before buying it. It was suppose to start in November but it never did the company told me that they had some issues getting a Warehouse and to rest assure it should be starting in December. It is now February 2011 and nothing has started so I asked for a refund due to the fact I had a bad taste in my mouth about the company. They told me I had to put it in writing which I did I never got a response and today some guy from the company that invested money or is a CEO basically told me the company went bankrupt and he doesn't think I will get my money back. ( he didn't say i wouldn't be getting my money back but the way the conversation was going that's what he was getting at) what do I do please help.
