Geek Suspects Online Girlfriend
Of Faking Her IP Addresses

By Brian Briggs

Livonia, MI - David Rangel, a geek from suburban Detroit, suspects that his online girlfriend, Tiffany Mounds, may be faking her IP address.

"I've been dating her online for about six months now. I got suspicious when a lot of her comments in her code looked a lot like those from that bastard Java coder Trent. So one time, she tells me she's at home, and if I don't believe her to check her IP address. She's a bit too free with that information," said Rangel.

"Then other times she'd be like 'Oh baby, I'm coming at you from' and I'd get all hot. Then later I'll check and find out that isn't even assigned to her country. What's that all about?" wondered Rangel.

Tiffany Mounds (not her real name) said, "David is so easily fooled. He thinks 'ooh, me big hacker man, ph33r me,' but I'm playing him like Diablo 2. He has no idea where I'm coming from. I have this little dongle that I stick in my box and it automatically fakes it for me. It's really effortless."

A recent survey showed that close to 48% of females were faking their IP addresses on a regular basis. Many surveyed said they do it for safety, so some 'loser geek' doesn't start stalking them. Others do it to protect themselves from viruses. "You never know where these guys have been pinging," explained one respondent.
