IP hiding - any way to find out an IP address if the sender hid it?

Post by CuriousUtah »

I have three emails that I suspect are from the same person - different names. I believe the person is "hiding" their IP address - is there a way to find out if all three emails are from the same person?

being harassed online and it's getting to be a pain. local law enforcement has been notified but it is taking forever!

thank you!

You can try hiring a lawyer and subpoenaing the records from the email company to get what information they have about the sender. From there you'll likely get one or more IP addresses which then you would need to subpoena the ISP to find out who their customer is.

Hi Curious why don't you just block them from sending you any email?

another thought you have to watch what you open as there are virus in emails and phishing attacks.
