I would be really grateful for any help anyone can give me as I am useless with a computer. I basically think I am being ripped off by someone I answered a job advert to sell shirts on Ebay for a guy I have sold a few and paid him the money via paypal and they have not been delivered . I now have people very upset as you can imagine, I have 2 email address contacts with this person who I thought was based in the UK but I did a IP search and found he is in the USA I have got his details of IP address,country,latitude longitude etc but need to able to find a physical address or track him down better is there anyway Ican do this I am going to get the Police involved or go to some type of internet fraud investigation so can anyone help me please I would be very grateful thanks

Since you have the geographical location you need to see what city is near and look for ISP's in that area.

Remember that the IP address lookup will show where his ISP server is. Which could be hundreds of miles from his house.
I should pass it over to the police. They have trained people for what you want.
