DWHS dwhs.net DWHS Website Hosting a rip-off, bait and switch, fraud Los Angeles, California
Ok so we were looking for a Website Hosting Company. We contacted a rep from DWHS by phone beforehand to see if their servers supported Zend Optimizer, which works with an older version of PHP script. The rep said yes. The rep was also asked if they were going to continue to support Zend optimizer in the future (for at least for about a year) and the rep said yes we will carry it permanently.
So then we went ahead and subscribed for a year. Right after we subscribed,
there were problems because they issued us a server that did not support Zend
Optimizer. So we had to contact support, and we were then moved to an older
server. However, soon after that we receive an e-mail from support stating that
also the server that we were on was going to be upgraded and would not support
an older version of PHP.
So at that point we just contacted support by phone and spoke to Charles
(who may possibly be the Company owner) It seems like Charles is running
everything himself - is support, sales, and everything else (not sure
though). This company claims to have 24 hour support, which is a joke. I called
several times at various times of the day and got no answer.
So my partner spoke to Charles on the phone. So initially Charles agreed to
issue a credit to our credit card account. He said he tried to issue a credit
but the card was expired. So I had e-mailed him back with the new card's expiration date. He then said that the credit
would still not go through.
So I was getting suspicious at this point and contacted my Bank. The person
I spoke to from the Bank stated that all he needed to do was to enter the new
expiration date and the credit would go through. So at that point, it was clear
to me that "Charles" was trying to run a scam, so I proceeded to
initiate a Credit Card Dispute.
So then Charles e-mailed me back with threats saying he is going to sue
because his charge got disputed and it cost him an extra $30. I simply
responded by telling him if he would have issued the credit to my account to
begin with, like he said he was going to do, there would be no issue on that.
His excuse of the card being expired is total non-sense, because I had
e-mailed him the new expiration for it already, and that is all that he
So I urge everyone to stay clear of the Company DWHS Inc. They are just rip-offs, cheats and frauds.
