Somebody emailed me, saying they are in London. I have several
reasons to believe this person is not who they say they are. So I
traced the email back to a TV/cable company in Belgium, using the
header info in the email. For reasons I will not get into, I believe
this to be accurate.

Is there a possibility that a yahoo email from the UK near London
would use a proxy server in Belgium? If so, why would it not show up
in the trace? Keep in mind, this person wants me to believe she is in
London.

Thank you.

A lot of Africans have yahoo.co.uk email addresses, and connect through
a satellite relay, so I wouldn't be surprised to see those coming
through a European server.
