[PSA] HostDoc - not refunding and filing chargebacks with upstream providers! [IMPORTANT]
It has come to light that not only is HostDoc not refunding but he is also now filing chargebacks with his own upstream hosts I assume to claw back a bit of money from the brand he said was profitable.
This has been confirmed at (the other place) if you have ever had service with HostDoc the time is NOW to file a paypal claim/charge back yourself.
Even if you were only out $1 file it on pricipal, make the scammers work hard and make it harder for them to get away with this.
He fooled many of us with his nice guy attitude, seems he is no better that a colocrossing offer on blackfriday.
Charging back against his upstream hosts that provided him with service is an absolute scumbag move, unforgivable.
Not the drama I want but people tend to be ridiculously optimistic about hosts doing the right thing sometimes and you need to know this is not one of those times if you are waiting for a refund.
remember you have 180 days for paypal and probably longer for a card/stripe.
edit: if somehow you arrive at this and want context or you were a HostDoc customer and did not even know they were shutting down here is the thread: https://talk.lowendspirit.com/discussion/569/hostdoc-closing-down
Adding to what Ant said, I would also very strongly urge anyone who is owed money to proceed immediately with a chargeback before his PayPal account is locked/etc.
