    Log in attempts

    Just received this -

    I have not been trying to log in. Is this a scammer at work??

    Dear Pete Simmons,

    Your account on Family Woodworking has been locked because someone has tried to log into the account with the wrong password more than 5 times. You will be able to attempt to log in again in another 15 minutes.

    The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 174.36.199.200

    Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Use the link below:

    All the best,
    Family Woodworking

    It's possible it was a hacker, but with the lock-out feature it will probably deter them from continuing. It's also possible someone with the same name thought it was their account.

    Let us know if you continue to receive those emails Pete.

    The Tor project can make geo-location confusing.

    Don, what IP tracker were you using that shows it in Germany?

    I've mostly used ip-adress.com and whatismyipaddress.com, since they seem to have the most complete information I've found. Anybody else have favorite IP tracing sites?
