IP address - property of the same person

Post by LADY007 » Wed Jul 31, 2013 2:12 pm

Good evening
I recently got in contact with a person in a dating site. This person said living in Europe but working in South-Africa. By the properties of e-mail, I found out, that there are different ip addresses. A lot from South Africa - but also a RIM - BlackBerry - London.
As i tried to geolocalize trough your web site, I saw some user comments for some of those IP. (Scam - dating site, fraud...).. Does this mean that the person that I'm in contact is a scammer? Or it's possible that ip adresses can be used by different other people?
For the RIM BlackBerry: this means the person sent by BlackBerry the e-mail but not necessarely from London, right? Could be from South africa too?
Sorry for my question - but I'm ZERO in this skill.
Thank you for answer me.
