Hi

Is it possible to find a person address with an email address to get in contact. (A person must give info to get an email address)?

Thanks

In a word "no" Not in the practical every day sense of your request.
If the email address is from Yahoo, Hotmail, etc. (free content providers) your home address/work address is not displayed nor carried within the email. This is unless the sender has attached that information to their signature, etc. (like within Outlook).

"A person must give info to get an email address".

This is true. However, even if the information they provided was valid (and most aren't) the carrier (Yahoo for instance) does not willingly provide that information.

You can notify the carrier of the email (ex: Yahoo) with that information. Then if they decide they can delete the account, etc.
If fradulent activity is being carried out by this individual(s), the best thing to do is notify the authorities.
This link provides information on reporting someone to the proper authorities for various countries (not just within the US).

First you sue...
then you can subpoena the records from the IP/email provider.  Of course, if the scammer is in another country, or not using his home network connection, you may not have much chance of catching him.

or if they are using a free email address and a public computer, even with a subpoena you probably won't find them.

What is the problem you are having?

And if there is fraud, have you reported it to the police yet?
