Neal thinks he's so slick. The man arrested would be Seth Allen who lives about 35 minutes from Boston.

     I do some protective service work, one client is the head of a Washington
    D.C. NGO that faced a credible death threat last month. Tonight I received
    information that the source of this threat traced one of the NGO's
    volunteers to her home address via Comcast IP, and the location is a
    relatively short drive away from a man who was arrested last month for
    criminal harassment almost five hundred miles from his home.

    I have some genuine concerns for the physical safety of this Comcast
    customer, and I'd like to talk to someone immediately. We've got an annoyed
    FBI agent who will confirm the back story on this Monday, but the subjects
    know they're under some sort of investigation and I'm afraid of what might
    happen if further info leaks over the weekend.

    This is a junk box for me - nrauhauser at gmail is the address I check
    regularly.



 

Here's the response to Neal's post:


  • Then your FBI agent should probably go through the channels
    (http://security.comcast.net/get-help/contact-comcast-security.aspx)
    they have to speak to Comcast, especially if it involves a threat to
    life and safety. Asking on NANOG for a Comcast contact to give you
    customer information (which is what it seems like you're asking for)
    probably isn't going to help and makes it look more like you're trying
    to social engineer some information than trying to help someone.
