    You know when you click somewhere thinking that it will bring you to the whateverthing you want to see, and it happens to direct you to a complete different website? well that has just happened to me, but that is not the problem. The problem is that the website was child pornography, and the website said something like "your IP address has been recorded".

    I am SO worried.
    If that website has my IP address saying that I watch child pornography (which I DON'T!) I am in big trouble, amn't I?

    What is going to happen? I am terrified

    I'm more concerned that this is an everyday issue for you lol.

    But seriously, where were you? /b? Honestly it's 85% likely to be a troll. The police aren't going to tell you they're coming for you...

    No, no, it didn't say anything about it being the police, just that it had recorded my IP.

    I was worried and started researching, and apparently the government created fake child pornography websites that record your IP (a way of catching everyone trying to do so). I don't know if it is a joke page (I hope it is, ffs) but that's why I am so worried. What if it is not?

    And the reason why I posted in here is because I ddidn't know where else to do so.

    Seriously don't worry about it, they aren't going to tell you they recorded your IP either. You've just been trolled hard.

    What were you looking at that you managed to find child porn? Anyway, it doesn't matter, I'm sure you'll be able to prove your innocence in court.

    99% of website that say 'YOUR IP ADDRESS HAS BEEN LOGGED' are trolls themselves, trying to scare you.

    Unless you intentionally downloaded or distributed child pornography, you haven't done anything wrong, so it doesn't really matter whether or not they have logged your IP.

    Most likely you will go to prison for a long time.... Child Pornography is a serious thing you sick bast*rd... :P

    Seriously, it's nothing. Especially as the site we talked about in the other thread isn't really a proper site at all, it's going to have no ramifications IRL.

    If your really worried, you can ring your ISP and get them to change your external IP address, but I wouldn't bother.

    Think about it logically for a moment The police don't ever say hey everyone we're going to be looking for heroin at x, y, z address in Manchester tomorrow just thought we'd let you all know. If they did the suspects would flee and destroy the evidence.

    I doubt the police would ever openly announce they were logging or watching someone as it'd wreck any chances of a successful prosecution.

    It's nothing to worry about. It's a troll page. The Police would never tell you if they logged your IP, it would defeat the object of it. Add to that unless you're actively taking part in the production or distribution of CP they're very unlikely to do anything even if you were intentionally consuming it.

    If you came across child porno, I would strongly advise reporting the site to the authorities. Its not about you getting into trouble, but about bringing justice to the [email protected] that created such material.

    Let's say for one moment that it is the real police (which I highly doubt) - which jurisdiction are they in? Likely America - they wouldn't extradite you for something that small. Let's say they did, or the police were in England.

    Let's say for a second it goes all the way to court, they have your hard drives, they have your computer, they seized everything. What would they find? The fact you visited one page, from a redirect, nothing else on the PC at all? The case for accidentally hitting the site would be very strong, a good lawyer could probably throw it out very quickly.

    Failing that, the police aren't above the law themselves - you could turn it around quite easily and say they are distributing CP. Which is a far, far worse crime.
