Help from you knowledgable lot

OK, so my wife has been scammed on FB.

She has bought something, paid PP gift (I know, I know!) and then guess what, nothing.
She is not the only one.
So my questions on here is twofold.

1) Is it worth contacting the Police/ are they likely to do anything (I think the scammer has done about £500 from my missus and others)

2) Can I find out where this person is from messages she has sent? I know a bit about IP addresses being hidden etc.

I have been sleuthing and found some interesting info about the scammers friends/partner etc

So anyone any good at hacking??

I know I am probably p'ing in the wind but when in doubt ask the misk

The Police Would Be A Start
There is an ip finder programme, search using google, use it and put your header from the seller into it, it narrows the address down to 500metres, report this to the police, if it's a company address, phone them and ask to speak to the it manager, you'd be surprised how far this gets you....

Dont drop it, keep persuing it, did you pay via credit card per chance?
if you need any help pm me and if i can help i will
Cheers guys, she paid using my paypal which is linked to my bank account, it's a private seller so no comeback on a company either, she's spoken to paypal who weren't really helpful, I'm not blaming them after all she sent it as a personal payment not really knowing what she was doing this person just asked her to do it that way.
Phone The Police
buying from FB??

Arent people on FB your friends??

It was on a fansite thingy, but it would appear as though one of her recent 'friends' is the alter ego of the scammer, but we haven't revealed that we know this yet.......
Yes if the police can trace this person they can be arrested for fraud. and if you do find them as well as criminal proceedings you can also take them to a small claims court to get your money back!
