I agree with everyone else here... File a police report, also tom could give you his IP address (in case he didnt give you his real address for shipping of the bumper) which the cops can use to find his ISP, then his home address, so I would also consider doing that... I doubt he has used an anonomizer every time he has browsed FF....

And to you dude, what goes around comes around... aint life a bitch!

Ok, I'm surprised no one else has brought this up, but you do know if u have the guys phone number, wether its a cell or home phone you can easily get all the information you need to be able to drive up to his front door and smile at him. There are plenty of websites out there that all you do is type in his number, pay like $10, more or less, and it will give you his address and a map with it.

Are you joking? Have you ever heard of proxies? If he had one set up (which is very very very easy to do), he would essentially always be using that IP, not his regular one.

IPs aren't the definitive answer that many people claim they are. Maybe he was wardriving while on FF, or maybe at work, or even at someone else's house. That's like saying a phone number is the best way to pinpoint someone's address.

Wow, you are lucky this is a strict forum... firstable, it is most likely that he did not use a proxy, obviously he's not that smart, secondable, you CAN pinpoint a person's address with just their phone number, i've done it a bunch of times, and so has my girlfriend to find out who's been calling me and from where.

Strict forum? What are you talking about.

Obviously, you are a master of the Interwebs and I cannot compete with your wisdom.

For everyone else, don't rely just on IPs and phone numbers.
