Suspcious on email.

Cody Robertson Staff asked 3 years ago

Hello everyone

I have being emailing a person but I am getting a little bit suspcious on a few things and I am wondering if someone here would be able to help me..

I have read the ip search on the hotmail section but this is weird because IP seems to be the same as the person sending me the email and I don't have much understanding of IP's etc that's why I am here to learn a bit more. Is it possible for us to be on the same Internet Service Provider in the same area and have the same ip or am I being duped by someone living in my house using one the pc's.
Below is a copy of the email message source with the email addresses xx out.

I am just trying to work out if this person is ligit and lives in another area nearby or just playing a sick prank on me? What do you think? Please help shed some light for me 🙂

Thanks in advance if you need more info let me know.

Here's the originating source for this particular header.

X-Originating-IP: []

The IP you posted from is the same so it's either someone in your house duping you or the sender has spoofed your IP address.

My's someone in your house.
