Sock Puppet -- need help with IP

Post by MippyD » Sat Aug 05, 2017 2:58 pm

I am a moderator of a forum. We have been having an issue with a member with duplicate accounts. Can somebody please walk me through this.

The member in question mostly uses a mobile phone. They have uses a broadband wifi account that is recorded on WhatIsMyIPAddress as a static IP address. So two different members show up on this IP address. No, it's not two different people living in the same house. And then these same members show up as duplicate accounts on mobile IP addresses.

So anyways they use their mobile A T & T account the rest of the time. So how likely is it that IP addresses assigned by A T & T repeatedly show up for a member with the static IP address of their wifi and mobile IP's. We do get other members on these IP;s from 2015 and 16 but no members recently. They have created numerous sock puppet accounst that are identified with these duplicate mobile IP's.

I don't want to accuse somebody who is innocent. Can somebody walk me through this.
