3. send email to him with image sourced from your webspace, clock his .ip address from your web server stats and use this to trace his isp, then report to them
3(a) use the i.p address to hack his computer (details on how to not availiable
4. if you get his email we could all email a few mb's each causing his account to fry
5.Use the phising technique's with the info you have about him e.g banks details
Unfortunately none of this will work.
1)To get his mobile number he'll also get YOUR details-then he can start Identity theft etc...and the phone numbers he used last time are fake anyway. Ebay don't check them.
2)He's using server-based webmail for email so all you'll get is the server IP. The last one was a Yahoo email. HE won't keep an email for longer than it takes to get the money then changes it-and he won't give it out til after the auction anyway.
3) He's probably using phished bank details-then taking cash out from cash machines or transferring it out of the country through several accounts and then withdrawing it. That's how I'd do it anyway....
The account he was using last time was UK based and this guy is blatantly not from the UK-if he was then he'd have enough 'local knowledge' not to use florida plates on a UK ebay advert-or bad photoshop techniques on 'personalised plate sales'....see below.
and the 'car' it came from...
And links to the items-see the last 2 feedback recvd...
4) This guy is CLEVER-and if anyone DOES get his IP then unless you know how to make your IP completely untraceable DON'T try and hack him-he's clever enough to use an exploit on Ebay's own front page. Expect trouble if you try it.
5) The nigerian 419 scams don't work like that. Check them out on 419eater.com to get a feel for their MO.
