You have an IP address. It may or may not be the true IP of the so called hacker. If you don't know how to do a whois or other methods of tracing the IP, post the address & I'll tell you where to file your complaint.

Because they only ordered gift cards and no physical products, we don't have any shipping information about the purchases, but I can provide you with their IP address which can be used to look up their location. The IP address is: 173.49.128.162
Let me know if there is anything else I can do!

That IP address belongs to verizon.net
It's in PA, possibly around Perkasie. You can send an email to security@verizon.net
Tell them why you think someone at that IP address committed fraud. Give dates & times.

You can also claim fraud with the merchant where the cards were purchased.

How did you obtain this IP address? What makes you think it was for someone that hacked into your Credit Card information? Do you have this info stored on your computer?

also, be wary that it is possible he was hiding behind proxies so your address may not be correct at all.

There are many ways to hide IP address

No one hacked my computer. Credit card fraud is accomplished many many different ways, but as a consumer I plan to do my part to stop it. I was able to obtain the IP address from the online merchant where the fraudulent items were purchased....kudos to them!! I have already notified my credit card company of the suspicious activity. Unfortunately these savvy thieves purchased online gift cards so no merchandise will be sent to there. I will also contact my credit card company and turn over their IP address. This is probably all I can do at this point, but I am reporting this IP address to everyone I can. Thank u all for your help.

Just to reiterate what was said above...there's no way to know for sure that the IP you have is the actual IP of the computer these people used. I'd be more concerned about where/how they obtained the Credit Card Account number.
