    The person that registered the IP address apparently registered one in the US. I had a friend in Italy that wanted his company to appear in the US, so selected a US IP address.

    That sounds strange, why is it ?

    There is thing, called proxy. You can hide your IP address, with another one. Are you using geolocator? Sometimes the geolocators make huge mislocations.
