I get the whole jazz, "the best you can do is find the city" blah there must be some way because I got as far as getting the zip code absolutely free and what do ya know? The zip code was for the right city that this person was in. I want to know how accurately I can pinpoint a location with an IP address and how much it'll cost.

I'd be willing to pay up to $2,000 if it can find me the right neighborhood and $4,000 if it can get me the actual address.

I'm not a hitman or anything lol... I wouldn't be on here if I was. I'm looking for an old friend :/ I need to know if they did something stupid to themselves.... or if they're ok... that's all.

:( it has been eating at me slowly for 3-4 years.

I don't think that exist, since it will be great harm if someone know your IP and ping back to your home. If he's thief? Not good.

You correct about zip code, I think if you know the zip code, its better to ask the local administration office of that city and give them information about name. That may work better.

 

Or did I miss something?

 

Thank you.

There used to be a way.  Why not try the local police if you know the name

You're not going to be able to get that accurate with an IP address, unless you get the information from the Internet Service Provide (ISP) providing the IP address.  Most of the IP searches will show you where that ISP has that IP address range.  To get more accurate you would have to get the account information tied to the IP address that they had assigned at the specific time you wanted.  Normally you'd have to go through a court to get that information.
