Research this and you find some New Englander's locked out of the iTunes store because the IP ranges claimed they were in Canada. So forget this and just report the issue to authorities that deal with scams.
Can anyone tell me of any good sites they know of where you can get a map which shows the location of where IP address is at? Free ones please, and I don't want to have to donwload anything.
I used to know of one but can't find it now. I've looked at 5 pages of Google and tried some, but can't find any thatsas close as the one I once had which mapped me to the building next door-- but this is how close it needs to be able to come, or closer if possible.
I want it for this reason : I want to see if weirdos can map me by IP address on any placeon the internet, and that includes if they can come close to it. I also need this to map others, for safety reasons, if I were to get targeted by a scammer but he pretends to be legit and claims to be from downtown Alabama, I could then use this tool to map his IP address and see if he's really from there cause if not, he may be scamming me (again, I'm trying to safe on the internet)- this way, if I use this tool to help determine he's lying, I'd know to avoid this person.
And yes, fyi, I already know about people can choose to use proxys to hide their real IP. But not everyone uses this, so I could still use a good mapping site to locate the location of an IP address.
Thanx ahead for replies.
