    I tried to sign up for an internet service, and the site was jammed up and it wouldn't work.

    So I emailed them telling them to cancel the order, and refund, which they did.

    Now a month later, they billed me again, but in the meantime I cancelled that bank account and it caused a bounced check.

    Now the website won't return my emails.

    I'd like to have an attorney send them a cease and desist letter, so I want to know how to find them.

    They have a U.S. based customer support number which is: 612-605-0724

    They are a secure tunnel site.

    There are a variety of programs available that can trace sites for you, and get other information, (I'm assuming by a WHOIS, like XDude said). Try Googling for one?

    whois and if that doesn't gather enough information, go the the registrar with the help of your lawyer to get info.

    Another slower path would be to go through bbb.
