Scammer Fraud

Post by jb50445 »

A friend of mine was scammer out of $7,700.00 on a used car by using a escrow account. I have been able to track the person to this IP ( which show Kansas as the mail server the original email was from NY. I am way out of my area but I at least got the IP. Can anyone help me or tell me how I can get closer information so she can sue the person and get a lien on something they own to try and recoup some of her money? I am sorry but I hate a thief and feel they should be made to return the money they stole. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you..

The best way is going to be to follow the money.

Have you reported the fraud to local police and to the escrow company?
