    Hi
    A while ago, I received sinister private messages through my trip advisor account. The odd thing is though, the messages were received showing times between 7.30 pm and 8.30pm then suddenly changed to between 10.30pm and 11.30pm. Why would this happen? Could they have changed it so I didn't know what time zone they were in?
    I know this sounds like an odd question, but I have valid reasons for asking.
    Cheers

    I don't think that would be the case. It sounds like its a bot sending the messages if it's spam (like advertisements). If that is the case, or if it's someone sending nasty messages, then check this page out if its from 1 person.

    Hi thanks for the reply. It's definitely not a bot. Could one malicious person change the time? Long story short, they've pretended to be someone else almost causing a marriage split.

    When they post a message it should be server time, unless it goes by the person's computer clock.
