    Hey,

    I visited lowendbox on wednesday and found some good VPS deals. I was looking for cheap VPSes to send bulk mail and do some click tracking.

    I thought that lowendbox usually suggested good companies so, I purchased a cheap 512MB OpenVZ vps and a 512MB Xen one from 2 different providers. I know, I shouldn't have rushed into this! Guess what! The VPSes suck big time!

    The openvz one is damn slow, I get connections like 40KB/s max and I can't even get Mysql to start. These fuckers are really overselling this like crazy!

    The Xen one is totally broken. It has a SolusVM control panel and tons of templates. With some OSes I can't even login via ssh :(. After finally getting a working template, I type free -m into terminal and I find that only 250MB of RAM is free! WTF!? Where are the other 262MB? I typed ps aux to check which processes are running and guess what, nothing unusual is runnung! Fuckers probably created custom kernel for overselling memory as shown in this:

    Code:
    http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/how-to-tell-your-xen-vps-is-overselling-memory/
    I sent multiple tickets to both providers. They did reply but they put me on hold for 3 days (until today)! I even called their phone numbers but I couldn't get anyone! :callyou: Weird...

    I already opened tickets and asked for refund but they haven't replied yet...

    Now all I want is to get my money back so that I can buy from better providers! I paid with Paypal and I thought that I could file a dispute to get a refund but I don't know if this is gonna work because I already came across this situation with BurstNET a while ago and I lost the dispute.

    So, any suggestions? Any guaranteed way to get my money back?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    You paid them from your Paypal Balance or from your CC?

    If You used a CC, Dont file a dispute, file a Chargeback from your Bank!!

    (If File Chargeback after a Dispute, Paypal will fight against you to your bank!! - Saw this somewhere on the Paypal Help Pages!)

    Yea I paid with CC. I've never done a chargeback before, maybe I'll call my bank tomorrow if the providers refuse to send me a refund amicably. Anyway, won't this get my paypal account disabled?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    No, this wont!

    Chargeback is a buyer protection privilage!

    Well, Make sure you dont file a dispute in Paypal! If You do, Chargeback would do no good!

    Paypal is fighting scam buyers, so, if you file a dispute,fail in it, and then file a chargeback, they assume that you are a Fraud Buyer!

    Well, Chargeback isnt a big deal! Go to your bank, ask for the form for a chargeback, fill it, and submit! :)

    Hey man,

    Sounds great! After years of doing online transactions I didn't know that filing a chargeback was so easy. :rolleyes: To be honest, I got scammed many times; if I knew I could get my money back....

    Thanks and rep for you!
