VPS abuse and $0.1 million lawsuit
i seek Your kind advice and opinion regarding classic abuse/fraud in web-hosting industry.
a) There is an US company who provide dedicated server to the customer from Germany.
b) The German customer using the server (one of its ARIN IPs) to provide shared web-hosting account to a customer from Nigeria.
c) The Nigerian customer send an email from his web-hosting account and trick some Italian company to send him 100 000 USD (example: international bank transfer from Italy to United Kingdom).
The Italian company then submit an lawsuit in Italy providing email headers of the communication with scammer and details of the transaction, details of the case.
I want to ask what is the probability that Italian company will get the money back from:
a) US server, IP provider
b) German web-hosting provider
c) Nigerian scammer
What are the ways to get money back and how such a legal process will/can run?
