Default Im being hacked

Hey guys, I have an interesting scenario/question. I received an email from an individual saying he was able to track me down and cite my identity after I had sent an email out, and apparently he received the mail. I have a couple of email acounts, and what makes this scenario interesting is the fact that my original email (sent through yahoo) was traced by the hacker, and yet the hacker sent an email saying he identified my identity to my hotmail account, saying I should "spoof my headers" next time if I wanted to avoid being hacked into. Any insight to this?

I dont think this hacker is faking it- he was able to provide me with my name, address, and other personal info. It's kind of freaking me out. This is probably not relevant, but in the "sent" field, I included my own email address, and that email account uses a different name. Hope u guys can help. Any hackers in this forum?

This might sound crazy but it could be a friend playing a joke on you.

It has happened to me but I was able to track him down.

I was talking with a couple of my colleagues, and they said the hacker might have been able to track down my IP address, and if the address matched my two email accounts, the hacker could determine my identity. Question is, how would the hacker determine my IP address in the first place?

You may want to encrypt your computer. Or get software that'll scramble your IP address. My computer runs on encryption. The hard-drive is encrypted, meaning morons can't break into it. I'd personally smash the knee caps of those little nerds who think it is funny to mess with the computers of hard-working people.
