Also if IP's are more or less determined by location is there a database available where I could access what locations correspond to which IP's.
A better approach is needed for identifying ind. users! This should be made a separate posting? 'Call for ideas' but as a business establishment on the Internet I should have the right to refuse service to anyone who is creating or causing havoc in my business? The only way I see currently to accomplish this is BAN: 184.108.40.206/8 million

Example A: I recently tracked a CC fraud attempt to a UK owned IP block that upon deeper digging found that part of the IP series was re-allocated to a Nigerian company.
Example B: Mobile devices with internet access in one area/country may be used in another quite easily, but the IP would identify only the ISP's acount origin.
IMO, investing money in IP-to-geo mappings is a waste. You'd be better off figuring out how to create a better user experience overall to get more people to use your site, buy goods, etc.
