track a user's IP address

I have gotten multiple offensive messages and calls from a user who is using false names of a couple different people I know. I know this person knows me and goes to my school. I want to track this person, and find out who it is. I have an incling but I cannot just assume. I want to know. The people he is immitating want to know. This is getting out of control and I want to find this person immediately. Please help me track the user names: basshead876 and basketballa469 

Please! I do not want their usernames being deleted, I want to find out where they are coming from. This is a serious matter and I want to get to the bottom of this. Please get back to me with some information or anything at all. 

 

Thank you. 

Breonna

Re: track a user's IP address

This is a user-to-user forum and nobody here will be able to give you the information you're looking for.  In fact, I doubt Skype will provide you with those details without your first involving the police, but if you want to try contacting Skype you can start with this link:

I've received the same sort of messages from the same username and who ever it is claims to be people from my school too.

Re: track a user's IP address

if you really feel that this is a serious matter, and can be considered as a form of harassment, you may indeed to report this incident to your local police. Then they can contact Skype if your local police may need information for their investigation.
