How do you know the IP isn't spoofed through a proxy? It's trivially easy to do :-(

Most/all spammers do this...

Without looking at the tcp/ip packets involved in a tool like Wireshark: http://www.wireshark.org/ , we humble users pretty much don't.

That poor guy's Windows machine is likely part of a botnet and has 0 knowledge of it's mis-use by criminals.

Bonne Chance!

Any chance it's some poor Dutch farmer's zombified Windows machine?

WOW!!! How did you do all that Old Wolf?!?

Makovette and Stiobhan do of course have a point; there are some people out there who are as knowledgeable as they are nasty and wont hesitate to steal someone's identity by whatever means. I have a church friend whose E-mail address has picked up a spambot and started sending out rubbish (she believes it was in her phone) and my own work E-mail address has frequently been substituted in the "Reply to" box by spammers.

That aside, I was immediately impressed by your homing in on that location Old Wolf! You'll have to teach me the steps some day! :)
