Reporting Fraud with an IP

I have been defrauded out of some money by an imposter who was pretending to be a famous actor. I saved his emails and I know his IP address. If I send it to the police and ask them to trace the computer do you think they will? I live in Massachusetts and the imposter lives in Kentucky.

The reality is that police will probably do nothing as civil cases are not their priority.

By what means did you send the money?

maybe they won't do anything, but you need to tell them. sitting idle is also no good.
