    Hi all,

    Not sure if this is the right area to post this in, if not I apologize ahead of time.

    A few years back I was in business with another partner, well he turned out to be fraud adn thinggs got lucky. I recevied strange phones calls late at night adn threatening emails which supposedly came from our clients but I knew it was him.

    The emails were not sent by him but I know he had someone send them. I was able to trace them to another country which is the same country where he came from and still has family.

    My question is there anyway I can find out exactly the name of the person in which the IP address is from? I have a feeling things may get ugly again and having this info will be very helpful for me.

    As always you guys/gals are great and still learning all this IM stuff.

    Thanks for listening.

    You'll need to have a lawyer subpoena the ISP's records. Being that it's a different country, you'll probably have trouble.

    This is not legal advice, just my opinion.

    I thought that as well, but was hoping for something easier. Thanks for the reply.

    well you can't really trace to anybody's house with an ip...so you'd definitely go thru a lawyer on this one

    Thanks for the reply I appreciate it. If I had this information it will help me alot. I wonder how much it would cost to get it done.
