I was chatting with someone when out of the blue some guy came and started chatting with me in MSN.he gave me a threat that he's going to locate me via my IP address and beat me up.what do you think I should do?Since its Bangladesh Its most possible.

Now Can I also locate this guy?without pro help by his IP address?

Someone else asked a similar question earlier - try looking here for ideas.

Otherwise, try Nic.com - it's an international WHOIS server, and, provided you have the guy's IP address, it should resolve it to an ISP/Location.

The thing about that is its not accurate. That can not locate your physical location, so if your worried about them knocking at your door, do not be overly concerned. Websites keep on thinking i am from a city 70miles away from me.Every now and then i'll wind up at a website while looking for cheap computer parts of ways to make money and it will say "get laid tonight in grand bay" well, i am far far from grand bay. Do you have a router? if so, and he picked up your 192.168.x.x address..... he's never going to find you.

Report him to the police!

If you feared for your life (which u did ;) ) then its assault. So make the fu**er pay!

If a report is made and you have clear evidance, In severe curcamstances i think they could track him down buy phoning the ISP and getting full details.

But when you are thretend by someone just ignore them they are at the most gonna give u a virus or hack you (Which is unlikely) or just scare you. Its happend to me next day what happend? NOTHING lol their just crack heads trting to scare you

He was probably just having a laugh just trying to scare you if he means it get all the evidence you can like screenshots or a message log and send it to the police they should be able to find out his IP adress for you then all you need to do is contact his ISP.
