You can't find out the location of any phone knowing just its number, that would be a severe privacy violation.

 

You could build an app that sends location data to you and try to convince the user to install it on their phone.

There's nothing we can do here to help you. Location data is only available when the user uses an application and grants permission to it.

You know for sure that this is his number? usually scammers use software to send a fake number to show in caller display to the actual number they are calling from.

If it's a cell phone, then only the carrier (should) know the location. In reality, governments will use devices like Stingray to spoof a cell tower and get phones to connect to it, but otherwise you need to ask the phone company to get you information about that number. I don't know what the laws are where you live, but they usually only do that for a warrant.

If you have an IP address then you need to ask the ISP who is using it. Again, you probably need a warrant for that.

Not without trying to tricking him into giving it to you. Sorry that you got scammed, but that's the way it is.
