junk mail list and don't worry about it other than getting the police involved if you wish. The police can find where the emails originated even if the sender is using zombies for the mailing as every packet sent via Internet (or any network) indicates sender and recipient nodes but it takes court orders to get the information from ISPs so it usually isn't done unless authorities deem it serious enough to invest the money and man hours.
If you do opt to try having the authorities track for prosecution do not delete any of the emails but pass them on intact to the authorities.
The real question is why she responded to the "get rich quick" scam in the first place. Was it the Nigerian scam or one of the many newer ones such as winning the UK lottery or the Irish Sweepstakes?
Help from anyone,
My wife is being harrased (threatened) from a scam artist who sent a counterfit check to her to cash and wire funds. She called him on his fraud and filed a report with the FBI. The perpetrator responded by saying he cannot be found (IP Address)? because of a term called "OLE". We do not understand this terminology and google brings up very technicle information about Object Linking and Embedding, which I don't understand.
Although we have contacted the police, I need to know more about this abreviation ASAP!
As always, when responding please assume I have the technical knowledge of a five year old.
