Yahoo user pretending to be me! PLEASE HELP ME!!

Post by meheux » Mon Apr 11, 2011 10:47 pm

Someone is pretending to be me on yahoo and sending all sorts of private information about me to other users including my landline no my mobile details of my family even a face photo of me copied onto someone elses body. Explicit sexual pics. Can someone please help me I believe it is someone i know. One of the callers on land line did not with hold their number and was willing to help. He forwarded the email of pics (disgusting) and the senders email address beverly_moriarty@yahoo.co.uk.
I have contacted yahoo who have not yet responded (3days now) and informed police (statement only). Can anyone please advise me on what i can do!!!!! I am VERY concerned and do not know what to do. PLEASE HELP.

To be honest, there's not a lot you can do. If you haven't filled out this form for Yahoo Abuse:

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/y ... abuse.html

..then that's a good starting point, although this person can just get another email address for free from Gmail or whoever else.

What you do need is ask the person who forwarded the email to send you the full email headers and paste them here- it may help identify where the person is.

Definitely follow up with the police, this is clear harassment.

Thankyou
I have emailed the caller asking them to do above so will wait and see. In meantime I hope police are following it up. All evidence has been sent to police special department.
Thankyou very much for your reply

Based on what I could find out with a quick check @ http://lisati.homelinux.com/dnsbl-check ... 154.248.43, here is some information:

Reverse DNS: host86-154-248-43.range86-154.btcentralplus.com
Approximate Location: Diss, United Kingdom
Time Zone: Europe/London

http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/86.154.248.43 has some extra information that might be useful.

Normaly turns out some one knows you. you may have used there PC and it remembered your log in details, maybe a change of password would help anymore information being extracted from your account.
