Question:

I get questionable emails to my Yahoo! Mail account. How can I find out the sender's IP address and where the sender is coming from?

Answer:

Follow these steps to find the sender's IP address in Yahoo! Mail:

1. Log into your Yahoo! mail with your username and password.
2. Click on Inbox or whichever folder you have stored your mail in.
3. Open the mail.
4. If you can't see the headers above the mail message, your headers are not displayed. To display the headers,
* Click on 'Options' in the top-right corner
* In the 'Mail Options' page, click on 'General Preferences'
* Scroll down to Messages where you have the Headers option
* Make sure that 'Show all headers on incoming messages' is selected
* Click on the Save button
* Go back to the mails and open that mail
5. You should now see the headers.
6. Look for Received: from followed by the IP address between square brackets [ ]. For example [202.65.138.109]
This is the IP address of the sender.
If there are lots of Received: from with IP addresses, select the IP address in the last pattern. If there are no instances of Received: from with the IP address, select the first IP address in X-Originating-IP.
8. Trace the IP address of the sender using http://www.ripe.net/perl/whois

I met this individual on match.com, he told me that he volunteers in different country.
He has scammed me money, I am not sure if this is a whose photo, but all IP checked and they lead me to California, which is where he claimed to live. His name is Donald Ellison and screen name goldpill.

Some of the IP reading for Donald Ellison (goldpill) leads to Inktomi, Lawson database which is a fake and is part of Nigeria scam. This Inktomi corporation is from Sunnyvale Ca.

I began to receive letters/mails from what I found it is a scammer. Fortunately I began to be suspicious about the man who was supposed missing me. How could that be if he never ever met me. There were inconsistencies in his words. In the chat he hardly responded further than YES or NO or OK Baby and things of the sort. Finally I got to contact 5 of his new contacts in Hot mail and found out that the method was the same with more or less the same story and with promises of visiting them the same as he tried with me. Today I found he disappeared from my contact lists and in Facebook. He is no longer there. I guess he found out that I was contacting his potential victims. Some were from Mexcio and others I have not found out yet. He is supposed to come to Madrid on March 21st to one of the most luxurious hotels in the city. Yesterday I phoned the hotel and strangedly he still has his booking. Obviously I have no intention in meeting him nor have given him my private number nor address.
The name he used with me and other girls is Celino Lason but with another one he used Jason Celino. He sent a number of photos of what he said was him and a daughter of 7 years named as per his version, Irene. To another of the victims his daughter was 6 years of age and was named Jenny. He declared to be widow, 43 years of age, Greek nationality living in London for over 20 years. However his English was very poor. He calcalled me a few times and his acccent seemed more from Eastern Countries or even Arab or os. I never agreeed to chat with a web cam nor have given him my private numbers. I only hope I have reached enough girls on time to avoid them any further issues. He game me two mail IDs one in hotmail and the other in Yahoo.
I hope this is useful to someone. I have more photos available if anyone thinks they can be of any help, just let me know.
