fake site??

Post by ajmike09 »

Hello,

If someone can help me to understand this..

This IP 142.44.226.116 shows the location in Victoria, Seychelles next to Africa yet, the same IP shows location in Canada
(45°29'58.2"N 73°35'05.3"W) it's in a park??. How can this be? My wife is a freelancer and has been working for a bout 2 weeks with Coursehub and they "pay" her via this website unifiedtrustb(dot)com

42.44.226.116 is an IP address assigned to a colocation/datacenter company.

What is showing it as Seychelles?

Here are some red flags about the site that indicate to me that it's likely a fake/scam payment processor.
  • All of the links on the site just point to the homepage (except the login/register ones)
  • The domain is only 3 months old
  • There is no telephone number
  • There is no address
  • There is no way to contact them
