A spammer is harassing my friend and she doesn't know who. With some struggle, I found out the spammer's IP address. But I don't know how to proceed after this.

She says she doesn't want to move legally; as she suspects the perpetrator could be in her own family.

How can I get owner information (name, physical address) from a specific IP address?

  • The duplicate is an inverse of your question, but the answers address your question. – schroeder Aug 1 at 9:02
  • @schroeder Thanks man. So, even if my cause is legally valid, i can't get user info from isp? – neo Aug 1 at 9:09
  • That's a completely different question. You, as an individual, cannot get this information. The ISP, on the other hand, does have this information. But they will not give it to you. They may give it to law enforcement. Phoning up the ISP and asking nicely with a story of woe will not give you the info you seek. You are not entitled to it. – schroeder Aug 1 at 9:13
