Mistaken Identity

Recommended Posts

I often get mistaken for the companies / IP addresses that I provide information on.

I received an email from Google that you have tried to get into my mail service in Italy is called "attempted theft of data illegally" next time you will be reported to the POLICE ITALIAN

Hello. Mr ..........

Recently someone used your password to groped to access your Google account ................ @ gmail.com. This person was using an application such as an email client or mobile device.

We stopped trying to access as it could be the work of a malintezionato. Examine the details of the attempted access:

If you do not recognize this attempt, it is possible that someone else is trying to access your account. You need to log in to your account and reset your password immediately.

PS: This and 'your location

IP Address: 206 222 178 230
ISP: Internet Service InSync
Organization: YHC Corporation
Region: Los Angeles (US)



Hey Claudio,

You've mixed me up with a different company.  TestMy.net (my website) provides information on IP addresses, to help people like yourself who are researching.  It's very common for people to mistakenly email me thinking that I'm the contact for the information I provide. Just last week police in Australia mistakenly contacted me thinking I was the person in control of the IP they were looking into.
I know that YHC Corporation addresses are usually VPN, when I connect to Goldenfrog VPN I'm sometimes detected as "YHC Corporation".  The person that was trying to access your gmail was doing so through VPN to try to hide their identity.   :wink:
One way you can combat this type of attack against your Google services is to use 2-step verification.  Once setup and you try to access gmail from a new device you'll get a txt msg on your phone with a code, like your bank does.  It can be a pain sometimes with applications that require Google passwords, you have to setup App Specific passwords (in a tab on the 2-step page).  Someone would need to have your password AND your mobile device to access your account.
- Hope this helps.  Re-visit TestMy.net and test your Internet speed... see what it's really all about.
