What is an IP address? The Internet uses a series of numerical addresses to enable each computer to locate servers, Internet sites and FTP sites. These addresses are known as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and are the real signposts within the Internet. Every time you log onto the Internet or send an email you leave details of your IP address. These are the footprints of the Internet, showing who has entered a domain, sent an email or logged onto a site.
Our investigators have had a great deal of success in the vicinity of IP address tracing. By way of specialised techniques we have undertaken various investigations in relation to anonymous blogging, defamatory Internet domains, harrassing emails and cyber stalking.
We have successfully identified individuals responsible for sending harrassing emails by way of Gmail accounts, which strip the identifying IP details out when sending. This was achieved without the requirement of a Court Order and saved our client thousands in potential legal court costs and months worth of ongoing legal fees.
