Oh a nice thing happened today on one of my post: two comments suddenly appeared with one minute between each of them on the post about Life Technology’s purple energy shield scam and these comments were actually positives about the product. Something is wrong right? Two positive comments in a row for the biggest scam in history? No way. First of all, here are the two comments:
its not a scam trust me ive had 1 for a night it may not do dna repair but i definatly felt better after 1 night of wearing it.
dylan is telling the truth i own one myself and could notice the difrence
Now, one thing the author of these two posts didn’t figure out is that the blog framework I use (WordPress) actually log the IP address of every comment’s author for security reasons. Guess what? That’s right, the comments were coming from the same ip address meaning it was, as I suspected, the same person posting the two comments. For those of you not familiar with ip addresses, an IP address is a unique address that identifies you have when you access the internet.
Ok, so that was funny but I wasn’t satisfied with my findings. I wanted to check if that IP address was actually a Life Technology employee’s (if they have any) address or just the address of a random person feeling bad because he/she got scammed. So I traced the IP address and found out where it was coming from. Unfortunately, I can’t conclude on whether the comment is from life technology or not because I don’t know where LT is located. I’ve tried to search for a postal address on their website but couldn’t find any. The only information I was able to get is that their ebay store seems to be shipping from the UK. So, if they truly are located in the UK, the comment wasn’t coming from them because the city I’ve identified with the trace was in the US. They could of course have used a fairly simple technique to trick the IP address (By going through a proxy), but I doubt that this person is intelligent enough to do so because he/she didn’t even think about spreading the two comments by a day or two or asking a friend for the other comment.
Anyway, coming from Life Technology or not, somebody’s angry.
