Something is fishy here please help

Post  Matt_How on Thu Dec 04, 2014 3:13 am

I don't usually do dual entries this and another site but for this bill I did. Same bill hit in two very different locations less than 5 minutes apart this is impossible unless someone has teleportation or time travel abilities and I think if they did it would be used in a more fruitful manner. The anonymous user either made an error or is jerking me around. I am leaning toward the later. Maybe someone can figure out which is the correct hit if any. http://www.trackdollar.com/report.htm?url=BH75E0403DD3CFBA271867EB1B44544D0D22F8E51E

Well, your Trackdollar hit should show the IP address of the hit.

You can use a toll called WHOIS to look up IP Addresses and determine where they originate.

In this day and age of cell phones and other portable devices that hook up to the Internet, an IP check is not 100 percent reliable, but it is a decent indicator in most cases.

For example, a hit in Alaska should not come from an IP Addres originating out of Pittsburgh.

Try this

By the way, I looked at the two hits on a map.

The George hit happened first, and in a generally southward direction from you.

The Track hit happened in a general northward direction from you. Both were roughly the same distance from you, but in opposite directions...the distance between those hits is over 250 miles.

Now, it IS possible they could be legitimate hits, because in this day and age of portable devices, it could literally grab a weird location IP....I am not sure if the WG App actually makes you use a zip code still, or if it determines your location based upon IP address or some other means. If so, it is possible that both hits are legit.

Here's another possibility:

The user got your bill at the George location, South of you.
He lives, and intends to bring the bill North of you, where he actually lives.

So he hit one in the location he got it...and the other in the location he intends to eventually spend it.

By rights he should have waited till he got there to do it....but he didn't.

Just a thought.

I had that happen as well in North or South Dakota where they entered in one ZIP here and another at the other site. I had the other site check it out and tell me it was legit, yet the wording of where they got the bill matched closer to where they hit on TD. I just let it go.

I've gotten a few bills hit on both sites, but in the same place. I enter most of my bills on both sites. For me, I sometimes play looser with the TD entry.
