    Am I traceable from a yahoo email, mobile number? 28th Mar 19 at 1:47 AM
    I am considering reporting an inheritance fraud crime to the police. When I tried to contact the relative of the deceased (the person who should have got the money) he sent the letter back to the fraudster. Anyway, to cut a story short, in the letter I had a made up yahoo email and made up phone number using an anonymous sim.


    If the fraudster got arrested she would be trying to trace who wrote the letter to the nephew-


    Could she track the location of the sim as she knows the phone number? They ping the location to a mobile tower I think


    Could she know the location or IP address of where I made and sent the email from?


    I didn't use my real name.


    I also used an address of an old shared house I lived at six years ago (eight people live there at any one time ) . If the nephew wanted to write to me




    If I dob her in, I don't want any kind of revenge coming back to me otherwise it's not worth it

    Not sure what you are frightened of, but, if you are, just step away.
    You have informed the nephew, who doesn't seem too bright (English speaking or not) and he has decided to do nothing.

    As the solicitor told you it was a civil case, I'm not sure the Police would be interested.
    If she and her hit men haven't already tracked you down, I think you can rest easy.
    If the Police report a 'textbook' murder, we'll know she did.....

    Anyway, how do I change the email in my Facebook and if I lived in a HMO six yrs ago would she work it out?

    Would I call crimestoppers or go into the station?
