I have been Scammed When Buying A Hosting Site

    Hello to all dp memebers

    I have been scammed

    I bought boldpal.com form charlesFolly for a total of $900.

    After a few days today i discovered.

    That charesFolly Never owned the server he was an affilliate who contacted them for special affilliate priviliges. And he sold me a company that did not belong to him.

    Beacuse today when i was trying to get into the cpanel

    I could not login even to the whmcs or the main Site.

    Let this be an experience for you guys never buy a hosting site without deep research that is a lesson that i have learned the hard way.

    I lost my 900 dollars and everything.

    It's you that should be banned for not doing your homework before you shell out $900... Not to mention that $900 is a ridiculous low amount for a web hosting company.

    its also funny that sakeura is actually the same person as charlesfolly.

    using this as a way to make a good name for his new account so he can scam even more people.

    read these two pages in full for more details:

    mods check the ip addresses of both charlesfolly and sakeura and you will find they are hte same

    Not true at all, if your only making a few bucks a month, that's not a bad price.

    this is getting sick, this charade is going on for a month now, i don't think that the one who originated this entire thing knows who is lying to whom in this entire story, if you bought hosting a week ago, why didn't you login before, what did you wait until today ?

    Definately the wrong section, ask a mod to move this to general chat or something - it has nothing to do with Buying/Selling hosting itself. There are no offers nor requests. Do it before you get an infraction :)

    Good day

    no need to move this to general section. Let everyone be aware of the scam company. I suggest to make this thread sticky. So that newbies searching for hosting should not fall for this scam

    How can you buy a server without being sure that it'll belong to you ? I mean, contract is a must if you buy a "company" + physical stuff ( not reachable ).
    Seems that in this case it was your own fault .. next time you'll be more careful.
