isp/ scam concerns
« on: October 04, 2019, 10:07:52 AM »
 I have been chatting to a lady, I checked the ip address and found a couple of bad reports stating that the ip address had been used in conjunction with spam/ voip fraud /phising. This information completely contradicts the video calls that I have with this lady face to face. Any further help/ advice / information would be much appreciated.

When you say 'chatting', what exactly do you mean? If you are using live chat then the service you are using wouldn't reveal a location-based upon IP address.

Email might, but that's not a great indicator either because thousands of people using the same service are bound to be sharing the same or very similar IP address.

In the end, your choices are going to depend upon the person and your relationship with them. All you have to do is be sensible and not do the stupid stuff that too many men still insist on doing. Don't do the stupid stuff and there's not much can go wrong. You are most unlikely to lose a kidney.

Paranoia will destroya. If you video chat and talk to the woman on the phone often and she gives you no reason to believe she's a bad person, don't go believing she's a bad person.
