An illegal activity via Team Viewer

Hello, I write this message because of my Lawyer friend that ask me to help.
An illegal activity with Team Viewer App (credit cart usage) has occured about 4 years ago. (we have the exact date)

We have also victim's IP address that attacker connected via Team Viewer and used the Credit Card.

And we must prove that connection happened to victims IP address. Now we need attacker's IP address also.

Which offical documents we should provide to get Team Viewer connection logs of a special IP address? We need logs as soon as possible, otherwise the victim will count as real offender.

Re: An illegal activity via Team Viewer

Thank you for your kindly response. I contact the Lawyer and they will prepare an offical request form as soon as possible.

By the way;

After finish, what should we do? Do fill the "Report a scam" form? As I said, the crime happened about 4 years ago. We have no log file but IP address.

And the language of request form will Turkish, should we translate to German or English?
