Looking Up Someone

By BorgInva ·
I have someone who claims to know who I am, and they are sending me messages from an IM I do not know. Plus, they send me emssages on a screen name no one of my friends or family know about.
So with only the IM name, how can I find out who this person is?

Contact AOL or whatever IM is being used (Netscape, Yahoo, etc) and tell them you are being harassed. Send them copies of the IM's and the screen name of the harasser. They'll put a stop to it, at least temporarily. I don't think you can find out who the person is from a screen name alone, though, unless they actually put their real information in their profile. Almost no one does that.

I do not know what IM this person is using (AIM, MIRC, MSN, etc). I did find the person myself with hours of research. Turns out to be he thought I was someone with the same name.
