i have used this. it doesn't reveal who the original user is. it stops at singapore server and does not take you further
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
but you dont know which mail to check?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
The firm is based in india. It is a job portal www.jobshubs.com. The firm is bogus in the sense that their contact number does not exist and their contact address is a fake. There actual identity and physical location are not known. Hence you are dealing with a faceless entity. they are operating through GoDaddy.com who has provided them with singapore based server masking their actual location in india. They keep sending mails pestering you to make payments. Is it possible to get the geo location of the firm and local ip?

What is the nearest I can get to? Is it possible to know the final receipient of the money paid through these mails? say in a merchant transaction where there is no invoice
Tech Support Specialist: Josh, Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

It depends on if they are spoofing their IP address as well -- It is likely that you will never find out and I understand you are determined to find out whether you have been scammed or it was a scam attempt but there is a reason these types of crimes almost never end in any type of conviction.

atleast let me give it a try even with a 50-50 chance!!!!So if there be any way to get closer either to the originator or to the account to which the money is credited or if there be any other trace to get closer do guide me.
Tech Support Specialist: Josh, Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

There isn't -- You will never find that person/company.

even if i entrust with the law enforcement?
Tech Support Specialist: Josh, Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

It depends on where they are located -- Almost always they are located in another country.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
i have a vague idea of their location, but need some confirmation....we can plant a mail to identify the recipient if required
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
the server is in another country (singapore) but they are functioning from india because they contact me on mobile
Tech Support Specialist: Josh, Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

No, they can fake their numbers too.

I understand what you are trying to do but as I mentioned, it is near impossible to find the person then have it lead to any type of criminal matter.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
