What can we do?
Maybe someone could try to pose like they are going to do a deal with him to get his real contact information?
Are we sure this is the same guy,  or just someone else using the same proxy service?

It does not appear to me to be a proxy, it comes from an ISP called LeaseWeb B.V. that is in the U.S. Netherlands, and Germany
they do colocated and dedicated server leasing

it is probably a co-located linux box and probably hacked

its funny beacuse this guy has a chinese irc nick and using IP from the netherlands

Chinese hackers are some of the most active anywhere, and some of the most industrious...

they probably used the same hacked linux box for an irc bouncer that they used to connect to deepbit
to steal your BTC

in any case its very likely the person is not traceable,
but it couldent hurt to contact LeaseWeb B.V.
and let them know that someone used an IP that they own to steal your money
they may do an investigation and they may not, but its the best move you can make right now.

heres the contact info for their U.S. office
+1 703 5522754

LeaseWeb Inc.
9480 Innovation Drive
Suite 1, Manassas
Virginia 20110

glad I could help...

3. Back up the wallet.dat file it creates onto your USB stick.  Better yet, do it onto two USB sticks.  It's located at %APPDATA%\Bitcoin\wallet.dat.  Keep both copies safe and secure.

I would just add to encrypt it with a good but easily memorized passphrase, print out the ascii text and store it on your bookshelf.  Take a photo of those pages, and upload to your flickr account. etc.  I would recommend against storing a valuable unencrypted wallet.dat anywhere.

It seems that linux box is being used to send those scam emails also.  Roll Eyes

Also, the IP belongs to a VPN service operated by these guys here

You better talk to them, as they will be the ones to have the VPN logs, not leaseweb.

This is the URL for that IP
