Getting details from ISP provider based on the IP address.

There has been a cheating case (or case that cannot be disclosed). And we ourselves tracked the users IP address and nearby location. But we need to get the exact location of the user and address based on the information that ISP providers have. What is the fastest and legal approach to get this information. We have the time, date and nearby location of the ISP that provided the IP address to the user on a particular day. But due to large area to find this is difficult.

1. Unfortunately, the access to the exact location not provided to normal users.

2. Only special officers from police department ( ie., investigation agencies ) has the facility to track accurately.

3. You need to file FIR with cyber crime police to track accused with exact location.

4. If you need more information then you may get back to me.

If you think that you have been cheated through any of the scams, then you may lodge an FIR at the Cyber Crime Police Station and provide them the information you have regarding the ISP. They will further assist you in tracking the person/s. The ISP cannot provide you the information directly. However, the Police can obtain necessary information and assist you in this if an FIR is filed.
