    I hardly EVER bitch about anything, but i had to out this snake.

    Bought a small test package from them days ago, 5 ips for 19.99, was previously using mr.tornados proxies, but i thought i could find cheaper and similar quality, boy was i wrong. Having used packetflip, proxy bonanza and multiple other less known proxy services, i decided to use DankProxies.com since someone here mentioned they use them and had no problems with them.

    So after the package is ordered. I get the usual confirmation email bla bla. I get my ips/proxies, go to scrapebox and test them and i need a username and password for authentication, ok cool go to all my emails from them and NO Usernames or Passwords. So I email support, almost a day later, I get my user authorization. Ok what ever, that bugged me a bit. Then out of no where the next day, my user/password doesnt work. WTF. No email or anything of updated user/passwords. I then was upset and tried to contact their "live chat" support. Lo and behold i sat there like a dope for 15 minutes while my support representative would be with me "shortly". Never showed up, tried multiple times afterwards, NADA. I dont think they have support. So i get an email about 2 hours later, with their new password.

    At this point, I had it with them, Im super busy and dont have time to mess around with people who dont have their shit together. SO I fired off a nice email to them about requesting a refund as their site says 15 day money back guarantee, I had only been using their proxies 3 days or so. I get a response saying they will not refund the money stating that it was my fault i had not known how to properly use their proxies...

    OK filed a dispute in paypal, notified the person i had been in contact with, they hadnt done anything in paypal about the dispute, so i escalated it to a claim. So I get an email earlier from them saying "where do you see the 15 day guarantee on the site?" so im thinkin to myself. This F%$kin snake removed it. SURE ENOUGH i go to the site and its gone. I dont think this guy is real smart cause i just pulled up a cache of the site from earlier in the week and emailed him exactly where it says it.

    GO check out the site right now and check the cache

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.c...proxies.com&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&pbx=1

    F$%kin snake wont return a measly 20 bux, fine, ruin your reputation.

    WHile I agree it's not a great deal of money it's good that the OP is actually warning people of this, that is one of the main reasons for the shit list.

    i forgot why i think they banned the use of posting with scrapebox not sure exactly. Or i realized exclusive proxies was the way to go rather than shared.

    Oh yea and the cash money guy, its the point of 1) this shitlist section 2) the bad service 3) money is money, 20 dollars goes a good distance in IM, for a small time IMer.

    Didnt know blowing 20 dollars and not getting anything was ok with you bud.

    Totally agree. Given the opportunity, people like this will scam others for higher amounts.

    Thanks OP for the warning.
