    Is it possible to locate a street address with an hotmail email ?? In this case, the email address is and here are the headers associated with one particular email I have received;

    Email sender
    This Email was sent Thu, 14 Feb 2013 @ 22:40:51 +0200
    from IP address - IP Location: United States.
    The message came from Hotmail which has a physical location (in the US I guess). But that doesn't give any information about where the actual sender is located.

    No, there is no way to find out a physical address from an email you receive.

    Here are a few pointers to spot a scammer:

    If it sounds too good to be true, it is. If they ask for money in order to get more money, it's a scam. If it is someone that is allegedly interested in you romantically and they ask for money or other valuables, it's a scam.
