This is something you should bring up with Yahoo. Members here are not inclined to help in trying to find out others information or the such which can come off as being illegal, etc.

I know it must suck to be in your situation but this is a case you should bring up with Yahoo to take care of the situation the most legal way possible.

Also, please try to refrain from posting in all CAPS, it comes off as you yelling at us and can seem rude to members who browse and use these forusm. Thanks.

There is one aspect of what Tricky wrote I don't agree with, and that is the "it must suck to be in your situation" part. This sounds rather harsh, but this is your mess, don't drag other people into it: deal with it yourself(/with help of Yahoo). If you don't/can't/won't trust your girl: don't try to play these kind of "spy games" if you haven't got a clue: just split, change your online identity, cellphone number and next time don't give away personal details too easily. //And don't post ads including your email address. Easy bait.


//moderator.note: moved to General as this ain't no security issue. To the LQ community in general: you should always remember that even though privacy is an aspect of online comms you automagically expect, this is not per definition true. If you take privacy serious, you should invest a little bit of time reading about it, act on that and most of all just use common sense.
It is also good to stay away from helping people get another ones IP addy etc etc, especially if disguised as a tearfull message from someone in need: let their ISP/online service provider handle it.

How do you know her IP anyway? (More rhetorical than anything...)
