Police aren't going to go after them once they figure out the scammers are outside of their jurisdiction and without the ability to subpoena an online store for their shipping records the task becomes more difficult. It's still doable, but law enforcement isn't going to do it for you. A lot of us here could probably do it, but it would have to be some damned valuable data for it to be worth hunting someone down and pulling off fingernails for a key.
