Windows 7: Find ip address

Some teenagers prank called my mom once. They were very immature that they claim to "threaten" her life. Of course, my mom got pissed off and called the police. Police came and adviced that the best course would be to contact the phone company to get records/block phone numbers, etc.

For my personal advice though, I would contact Google regarding the e-mail incident and see how they would respond. I tried that with Yahoo once and they said I need to get some sort of a police report, a warrant, or a court order and they will happily help me with whatever scary problems I have in regards to e-mail.

I wish you best of luck! I hope you've stepped up security in your life just to be safe.

You could also check with your local phone company if they use *69 (to save the last incoming phone number.) When one of those annoying calls comes in you hang up and immediately punch *69. The phone company has reverse access to the saved number and that info can be made available to the police.

*67 may also be available and that blocks the last incoming phone number regardless of if it's listed or unlisted.

Your phone company customer service department should also be notified as they would have to work with the local police for any traces.

I have the phone numbers, he never tried to block his number. I only listed the number as (210) 353-xxxx cuz I didn't know if it was against any forum rules to list the actual number.
So far it has not happened again, which is good but I'm still very curious to find out who it is. I still get the feeling it is someone I know.
Since I can't get his ip address from the email he sent maybe I can send him an email and find the receiving ip address

Just an update. It took some digging but I found all the numbers were registered to our electric company. I only know one person that works there and he has harassed my wife b4. So I figure I'll call him and give him the choice either meet me face to face ( he never had the balls to b4 ) or I call the company and tell them to look in to it / handle it or I file a complaint with the BBB ( better business bureau )
