    Is this typical for a proxy company? These are all PRIVATE proxies. I'm contacting support to see what the deal is, will report back. Using Scrapebox.

    More details: 6 failed from 302 moved temporarily, 10 from 403 forbidden and 23 from connection timed out.

    Edit: Tested them again and the number of 403 forbiddens it up to 20.

    I used squid in the past and never had a problem and support was fast.

    Just contact support and see what they say/

    Just heard back from support. They gave me new proxies and all of them passed Google. :clap2: The skeptic is now a believer.

    Why so you buy proxies just go online and search premium proxies for free

    The first batch of proxies you get from them are typically not the greatest.

    Open a ticket and specify that you need working proxies for Google, they'll provide you with a new batch which should be much better. They're pretty good at replacing proxies, I've never had a request denied.

    They really are poor, most of mine failed and they just said oh well should have told us before.

    If you've ever purchased proxies before then you'll know why.

    OP this is just an accident, they wouldn't tried to purposely rip you off. I think these things can happen with any proxy provider, all you can do is ask for new ones and be on your way.

    Glad you got it sorted.
