Hi all. Yes, I'm a newb. I consider myself to be more informed than the general population in regards to computer sciences, but obviously not an expert.

I would like to know if it is possible and if so, how, to find spammers/phishers. I am sick of getting spam, and am on a mission to find the *******s who are sending it to me and bring them to court.

I realize that some of you may be involved in spamming/phishing yourselves. All I can say is that I hope you aren't sending it to me, because I am determined to find every single person who is sending me this crap and sue them! That being said, I'd appreciate any/all help on the subject.

I am sure there is a way to find someone's contact information even if all you have is a fake email address... Is it possible to figure out what IP address the individual was at while creating an "anonymous" email? If you could figure that out, can't you find their physical address, name, phone number, etc with that info?

There MUST be a way to find these guys...

Thanks in advance for any help.
