    Default Detect ip from email

    I know this is a long shot but here it goes, I am tring to sell a car for my dad on a carsales website and got a very suspicious email and was wondering if I could track it back to who sent it. It is a address and from the message details I get. Received: from ( []). I am presuming that is the yahoo server not the person who sent it. Is there any way i can get the ip from the person who sent it. I contacted the company where I am trying to sell the car and here is the response.

    "Many thanks for your mail and yes we do warn users posting ads to the site (once after submitting and again in the email with the access code) We also identify and ban international buyers IPs addresses from the enquirys but unfortunately a small % still get through.
    Thanks for been vigilant."
    Best regards,

    I can accept that answer but i would like to be able to track that person and maybe prevent someone from getting "screwed"

    here is the email they sent me


    Thanks for the e-mail.Since you said the price is 3000 euro a Certified cheque or International Money Order will be prepare and issue out to you,You will receive a cheque of 8000 euro and as soon as you receive the cheque you will deduct yours and the rest shall be for the shipment of the item.if you are alright with this arrangement reply and let me have the following information to where the Certified cheque will be
    send to like these;

    Full address(not p.o box).........
    Phone No.......,

    Pls the arrangement of funds shall be transfer via the western union and the amount is 5000 euro will be send to the shipper by you via WESTERN UNION outlet in your location,if you get this right do reply.



    Sorry for the long post but any help or info I can even send on to cardealership website to prevent this would be great.

    Without a doubt, this is a very well known scam attempt. Just delete the mail and go on with your life

    Default just for fun

    if you really want to waste some time:
    take somewhere some free space,upload a few pics with your car,embed this:
    if(mail($email,$sujet,$message,"Content-Type: text/html")){
    echo "Ownneeed";}
    else { echo "Shit ?";}
    $fl = fopen('iplog.txt', 'a');
    fwrite($fl, "$ip . $host . $date \n\n");
    $ip = $REMOTE_ADDR;
    $host = gethostbyaddr($ip);
    $date = date("d/m/Y H:i:s");
    <script type="javascript">
    window.location="<anywhere you want>";

    create iplog.txt,chmode it 777,send him the link to see the pics,his ip will be emailed to you(change with your adress)
    maybe useless,those guys use aol,cs and stuff...
