You actually didn't mention a telephone number above.

how would start action without knowing who it was?

Customer: replied 21 days ago.
That s why i am here . Can we find him or her from fake account
Expert:  Jo C. replied 21 days ago.

It depends how well he has covered his tracks.

If he is using an internet cafe under a fake name then there is no chance of finding him.

If his IP address links to his home address then he could be traced by the police are unlikely to be interested in this and the only way that you could find out is to get a court order forcing the provider to dislose. That would be expensive and may achieve nothing.

Best to just ignore it. These people get bored quickly enough.

Can I clarify anything for you?
