Scam European Patent and Trademark Register

m2host.com is scam fraud hosting

I have changed my hosting to m2host.com including the domain name transfer. m2host.com seemed very cheap $1 per month for windows hosting.

Problems began immediately after I subscribed. My web site was up only the first week. Later on there were continuous problems. When I wrote them through the online chat I was getting some template answers like "Our advanced administration team is working on the problem. We will inform you as soon as the problem is resolved."

I did some checks on google searching for "m2host complaints", "m2host scam", "m2host fraud" and there were quite many negative reviews complaining for fraudulent actions. Upon this I switched to red alarm and looked for an alternative hosting solution. However there was a problem. These idiots have put wrong contact data for my domain name including the admin email address thus being impossible for me to confirm the transfer to another registrar. So my domain name seemed to be hijacked.

I told m2host to put correct contact information for my domain name but with no success – they said we changed it and the changes will reflect after 24 hours. They lied me continuously about for everything. I started submitting complaints about fraudulent actions by m2host to ICNAA and m2host's registrar. Eventually I succeeded to get my domain name transferred and now I have control over it.

The next step was to get my money back from m2host. When I asked them for refund they said that they will issue and later on they confirmed that they issued the refund. Of course, I did not believe them and phoned 2co.com (the company who processed the payment) to check about the refund. And I was right, m2host lied me one more time. I submitted a complaint to 2co.com about m2host's scam and got my refund.

In relevant complaints on internet about m2host I read that these people use your personal data to access your paypal account.

Hey GUys! Becarefull from m2host.com, those —- peoples just try to access my paypal account, they thought i have same password that i used at their client area, and they try to access my paypal but paypal block account and send me emails to reset your password security questions etc, becarefull everyone not to use paypal or any payment method with them. — http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1969001 (posted by razashah on Oct 13th 2010)
