    I hope someone can help me with this one. I had posted before about finding an email address having only an IP address. And you folks were a great help! I am a graphic designer, one of the services I offer to my clients, is web postings of classified ads. I will post where ever they tell to post. I have a very good client that posts only on Craig's List. On craig's List, anyone can do, what they "Flagging". Someone in the Craig's List community, can "Flag" your posting, for any reason, and it gets deleted. Mt client watching for the postings, if it is not there, I do not get paid.

    This guy is falgging my postings as soon as I put them on the web. I have raed the HTML in the heading in the email that I received stating that it deleted. I signed up on different websites, to try and find identity of who this guy is. I traced him back to an AOL address, but I have received no help from AOL, except, to forward the emails I receive stating that it was deleted, to them as spam. I have sent either emails or a letter to the servers he uses, such as Comcast, AOL, Yahoo, AT&T, explaining the situation, I included lengthly data of IP address he is using on of the aforementioned carriers. I also included scams this guy is doing to get money from people, and I told them he is on Comcast Blacklist.
    He joined techy website called http://www.lunawebs.com/blog/2007/12/. There people told him how circumvent Comcast Blacklist. And he is back in business. I also informed them of these websites that his IP address is listed, not once, but mulitible times:

    Every one of the carriers told me they were sorry to hear of someone that that,but they are not responsible and can do nothing. They suggested that I speak to my MIS Department.

    Now, I have mapped him from somewhere local to me, to mainframes at U of Oregan, Southern Cal, U of Berlin in Germany, and a place in China. Does anyone know how I can find the identity of this guy? He hurting my business, and his scams are hurting innocent victims.

    I appologize for this very lengthly posting, I just wanted to try to explain my situation. Thanks everyone for your patients. Steve

    Hi Steve,

    According to a help page on Craigslist, it takes more than one flag by one person to get a listing removed. Could it be that maybe your client's ads are against craigslist guidelines?

    What e-mail are you talking about where you looked at the headers. Did it say it came from craigslist or someone else?

    Hi Chuck
    Yes, reading the HTML in the heading of the flag/delete email I received, it is the same person on every one of the flags. I came across a website of SysOpt Forums,. I found his AOL screen name listed there. Someone on there gave him this infomation :" This site is a mirror image of the http://aolmail.aol.com. What the rouge sitedoes is logs your username and password. It then goes through http://aolmail.aol.com and logs you into an AOL account. The unsuspecting person has no idea of what just went down. It is a very smooth operation." I am very new to this type of technology, and I have no idea how to protect myself from him. Any ideas?

    Hi Steve,

    If you believe that your craigslist ads are being improperly flagged by one particular visitor to that site, then you might try contacting the people that mange the Craigslist site about the problem.

    If you believe you are being harassed by an AOL member via e-mail, here is some information on where you can report those messages.

    Thanks, I have done that, with little success. I sent registered letters to the CEO, President, and the public affairs director. All 3 letters were delivered on 3/14/08. I have heard nothing from Craig list. I did post on the Craig list forum, the response I received was basically, anyone can flag. I have spoken to AOL 3 times; I have sent the emails I received from Craig list stating that the post has been deleted, at their request to their spam email at tosreports. I have spoken to the fraud department, they told me unless I file a police report with local police department, all they can do is review the situation.

    I am so frustrated. There has to be a way find the identity of this person. Does anyone know of a way? If it is secret and do not want to post, please send me a private message and I will give the aol email of this person.

    Hi,
    I strongly suggest you edit your e-mail address to prevent it being picked up by spambots. They'll lead to tons of spam mail hitting your inbox.

    Hi,
    Sorry, I meant for you to edit from here. Perhaps put graphicsman at yahoo dot com. Or you could ask people to send you a 'personal message' (pm) through TSG.

    Richard.
