    Default Derive personal information from just a Username - Maltego?

    I am a student Private Investigator, and have recently been given this task. Our client gave us a username. For example JohnCubs2009 and a possible domain name, place of work, and first name.

    He wants us to find out who the person is. I think this is typical of the kind of information we tend to get in these types of cases (cheating spouse, online dating, etc.), so I am trying to "cut my teeth" on this case.

    Here is the work I've done so far. Would Maltego be a good tool to use? Please feel free to reply or PM with any tips or advice.

    - Google search for the username returns lots of links to dating / singles sites (AFF and whatnot) with the username, gender and same age.

    - Searching for that user name in Yahoo! profiles nets a result that matches gender and is close on age (a few years younger). Perhaps Yahoo! doesn't automatically update birthdays. I will check that.

    - Searching Namechk nets results for LiveJournal and Bebo. Subsequent search of LiveJournal says user does not exist. I still have to investigate Bebo.

    The suspect possibly works for a media company, so if I ever get ahold of some REAL information, I'm sure I'll find a blog or some online content.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    This has nothing to do with BT. What's more if you are paying for the above education then you should get your money back.
    Your teacher/prof. should have taught you what you are asking.
