    HostingBox Closing Down :: Another DeadPool

    Mahfuz_SS_EHLMahfuz_SS_EHL Member, Provider

    Hi,

    Just got this Email:

    Hello, my deep apologize.
    
    We want to inform you about HostingBox closure, its official and I am very sad for saying this, we are going to close very soon.
    
    I advise you to take a backup immediately after seeing this message to avoid all the losses as possible, the reason of our closure is the NAZI PAYPAL FROZE all the money we own and even our personal money used to pay for the Datacenter and Servers and then we had a very bad cash issues that we couldn't pay for our servers, however all our tickets will get responded as fast as we could.
    
    
    Thanks for being loyal customers,
    CEO of HostingBox.

      I wonder how many of you will get chicagovps deals.

      I'm sorry, but was there an LLC behind Hostingbox? I thought to be a ceo, you need a corporation.

      I avoid "brands" where someone is a "CEO" without a company.

      A corp must have a CEO, but a CEO doesn't have to be part of a corp. You can give yourself any title you want.

      If someone is looking for Refugee plan (shared or reseller) let me know, we will do the same price and specs in France.

    • Never got a email from them, it's a shame that i must hear this from LET and not from the provider

    • update:

      Looks like LET is on fire on Joshua, I understand this, Its sort of his mistake for ignoring me for a whole week now and doing nothing with our clients,

      I am the one who wrote the last message to you, We used a verified paypal account and when the paypal limited it, I have sent the required legal documents to them but they limited it forever.
      I have called them tons and tons on phone, mail, twitter and facebook and every where I could, they never listened to me and told me to wait for 180 days. They limited mine, hostingbox business one and probably will do the same with Joshua's one,

      However no body would ever know me because I never dealt directly with my customers, its my fault, Joshua's fault for trusting paypal, anyway I will try to solve the issue as possible as I could and here is what I will do:

      1. If you had un-used time for the vps and want a refund, you could wait until Joshua gets back and refund you or you could open a dispute since I have no control over it.
      2. Looks like solusvm local host is down, and for the bad luck Joshua has the control over it as well so I advise customers that has the SSH access to take a backup immediately once and for all!
      3. I am not going to look for any more replies, I will let this brand rest in peace until I find a proper way to establish it again but this time it will conquer all the compete all the hosts.

      If any one want to reach Joshua, you may try calling him on: 26******* (Please get with me on tickets) I wonder if he would answer since I am not from US. --> That's for the dedicated server owner.

      PS: Andrea Mada from HostMada will get in touch with all of our clients to offer them a valuable discount on their services (Shared and VPS). Get in contact with him via support ticket or live chat in OUR HELPDESK.

      Thanks. Truly yours!

      Eh, if paypal froze accounts like this in two weeks paypal should close. There must be some illegal activity before paypal close accounts. Verified or not verified never plays a role.

      Uh, no. I had all of my funds frozen with not even a single chargeback or dispute on my account, fully verified.

      Yes, it should be like this but sometimes it's their own choice to freeze any account.

      NAZI PAYPAL FROZE

      I know HostingBox is only trying to portray PayPal's method as being "nazi" (sigh), but I think those "Schulmans" running PayPal would disagree with this label/epithet. In fact, those "Schulmans" running PayPal have shutdown several so-called "nazi"-sites. So I think a better epithet must be used...

      But then again who expects anything original coming from the guy running HostingBox ("reliable web hosting")? ;)

    • @randvegeta said:

      Another reason why support for Bitcoin must be added at dedicated server and colocation providers.

      No chargeback, freezing, insane fees bs.

    • AnthonySmithAnthonySmith Top Provider

      Sounds and looks like they opened the PayPal account with fake or man in the middle information, hit the 2k mark, PayPal asked for further validation (as they are required to by law) and then it could not be provided so they issued a 180 day lock.

      Completely normal, just complete amateurs taking shortcuts as usual, file a dispute, escalate to a claim and you will get your money back.

      Had enough of the scams on lowendbox, lowendtalk is now being infiltrated by corruption so I have chosen to make an low end exit #lexit for now - you can find me HERE

    • No fake information,

      Completely legit data and legal documents have been already sent to paypal, then they just frozed it then saying nothing except 'This limitation can not be appealed'

      I sent them Legal ID, Utility bill and every piece of document they asked, called them on phone, facebook and even twitter, they just don't care..

      Regarding the Nazi word, I didn't mean anything about it, I am not jew and its clear of my name, they just have some stupid security measurements that always catch innocent people, anyway It was partly my mistake trusting them and I have learned many lessons from these..

      Yes, that's why people should use bitcoins and other crypto-currencies!

      Was the PayPal account in your name?

      If so no wonder they didn't accept your documents.

      You are not even 18 yet according to this Companies House document

      Only 16, unfortunately PayPal require you to be 18 to have an adult account. Or it would be your parents responsibility to submit the documents for you.

      In my time using PayPal I have never had an issue when submitting documents / verifying my account. Can only they declined your documents due to your age. You should have never opened an account in the first place.

      Seriously if you expect everyone to believe paypal just hate you and gave you absolutely zero explanation then it seems you assume everyone has the IQ of a pencil.

      We got limited about 3 months ago on PayPal. They wanted to prove that we actually had a business model. It was a 3 day process. But we proved just fine... They wanted all documentation even though we had verified. It means nothing... That's not the end of it.

      I do agree with what your saying. PayPal don't just "shut down" accounts for no reason what so ever.

      They're got to be something more to this...

    • @Osama HostingBox has provided a good service. It's a pity PayPal killed your business. And don't listen to the haters.

      If you get scammed its not Bitcoin's fault but your damn own. Research would have prevented that.

      But meh keep enjoying your centralized little creditcard when it goes down when a massive DDoS or an outage comes (looking at previous years) while Bitcoin will be still running stable ;)
