I need some help and thought that some of you learned people may have the answers.
I have been receiving some abuse from someone via email and have located the ip address and their approximate location.
Having exhausted all avenues of knowing anyone in that neighbourhood I don't really know what to do now.
Can I find any further info?
I am also worried that they might have access to my mac as they seem to be able to get hold of private pictures.
I know I can report them to their ISP but what will that achieve? Will I get any closure?
Anyway, your advices on how to proceed would be much appreciated.
Either hire a private investigator that does computer forensics or contact the FBI....
But since I worked for a PI firm, if you are really worried, id go the PI route....even though FBI handles cases, not sure the chance of your case
getting immiediate attention....
- FBI CYBER CRIMES -
- FILE AN FBI ICCC HERE -
- Cyberstalking and the Law -
article (old but good read)....
- Cracking down on email harassment -
Cyberbulling - National Crime Prevention Council -
personal story (and will try and make it short)...
years ago, i was horribly harssed via a friend who was posing as someone else. it got really bad to the point i nearly had to get a restraining
order. PI was hired, cops called, etc....
before the world of proxies and everyone and their grandmother knowing how to use them....it was easy to find someone via their IP addy....that is how
I found out she was the one harassing me.....
so if you are really worried....contact authorities.
