Default originating IP addresses

I am looking for work as an English teacher in Saudi Arabia, and I have received several emails for interviews. The email addresses from these emails ends with .sa, which is good, but when I look up the originating IP address, it is often located somewhere in the USA. Does this mean that these are employment scams, or is there another explanation? I do not have time want to waste an hour on a fake interview.

Default Re: originating IP addresses

It simply means that the email server is in the USA.

Some IP address location searches can trick you and the location isn't always what's come up..
