    Track their IP, look them up in a WHOIS, and call them. I had a Russian kid doing an experiment and somehow I was chosen as his intended target. After threatening him with a lawsuit over the phone he quit.....after 750 E-mails. It wasn't anything malicious though, just E-mail to A-D of names to my server.

    little bastage!!

    You called Russia for this? Wow.

    Last time it happened to me..I tracked their IP, got their ISP from that, and went straight to the ISP with log files...told them they'd expect to hear from my lawyer unless they started enforcing their own usage policy. Next day, no more emails, no more hack attacks.

    The internet headers in the E-mail.....unless it is getting bounced oll over the globe you can track most messages back to their origin.
