just because you are using a proxy, that doesn't mean they can't see your real ip. I have made a huge mistake of assuming that...I am not going to confess to anything on an online forum, but let's just say I do not want some people to know my real ip and they do. why? because there is something called a transparent proxy...which means it doesnt hide shit.... scrapebox's ip check does not check for anonymity. a proxy could pass the check and be transparent. you want anonymous proxies, which are slower. so be aware of that.
