Hi

ordered a VPS from Green Value host (chicago DC) on 9th Aug. 2014. this was just to host my site and WHMCS. from day one emails were being bounce back and i found it was that the IP range was blacklisted by Spamhaus, so asked them to fix this. All i kept getting from them was

Quote:
Our data center is currently working with the SBL to have the IPs deblacklisted.
when i said thats not good enough i got

Quote:

In the meantime if mailing urgent for you, I recommend using Mandrillapp.
why should i use a third party service when i am paying them for this service as part of my server.

i gave them 24 hrs today to sort this and this is all i get back

Quote:
Ernie said that ColoCrossing doesn't really have any clean IPv4 ranges in Chicago at this time, however they have some in Buffalo.

Would you like me to migrate you over to Buffalo and reassign your IP addresses?

Regards,
oh yes they seem to use Hudson Valley Host for their services

Edit

Quote:
I chose Chicago as i know that location works for me as i had previous issue with latency from Buffalo
and now they come back with

There's unfortunately nothing I can do at this time because Ernie said that they don't have any clean IP addresses available. Are you not able to use Mandrill?

Sorry to hear of your troubles. Why is the delisting taking so long? It is unfortunate that they don't have any clean IPs they can offer you.

I guess your options would be to consider another provider, use a 3rd party service or look into getting your IP ranges delisted yourself.

not just the single IP, so cant delist myself ( spoke to a guy at Spamhaus)

It should be Green Value Host and not Green Valley Host, so if mods can change it please.

Quote:
I'll scrounge for clean IP addresses and give you clean IPs by the end of the day.
So if their provider hudson valley host/ColoCrossing state

oh what a great reply

Hi Terry,

Why would you need clean IP addresses for your nameservers, main site/WHMCS if the SBL status of the IP addresses do not affect those in any way?

I can only see a purpose for a clean IP address needed for mailing?

seems they are scammers, they provide a serer with blacklisted IPs ( so not what i paid for) and this is their reply to refund request

Quote:
We do not offer refunds for managed VPS hosting nor do we offer refunds for WHMCS licenses. I can refund your payment for VR-Standard and look for additional clean IP addresses to give you in the meantime, this is the only option that I am able to proceed with.

Regards,

Jon Nguyen, Operations Director
Green Value Hosting, Inc. Management
yet another reply after i said they have not provided a clean server.

Quote:
The response that was received is below:

----------------------------------------------

We did not advertise that the IPs would be non-blacklisted -- We have NEVER advertised this for the plans that you have purchased.

The only reason you would need a non-blacklisted IP address would be for mailing use. I gave you three completely clean IP addresses free of charge.

If you want to refer to legalese, our Terms of Service is considered a legally binding contract as per the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act passed by United States Congress in 2000, and according to such contract, you agree that managed VPS hosting services AND WHMCS licenses are 100% non-refundable.

I am offering to be more than reasonable with you here, offering you a refund for what I am allowed to give, for the VR-Standard plan and to continue searching for clean IPs to give you.

If you disagree with what I am saying you are free to open a PayPal dispute, in which would result in us calling PayPal referencing their legally binding User Agreement which states that intangible items are not covered by PayPal Buyer and Seller Protection, therefore they are legally obligated to close any and all disputes in our favor.

I am offering to help you and I don't have time to argue.

Jon Nguyen, Operations Director

now they say

Quote:
No, that's a complete lie. SpamHaus didn't blacklist the "entire ColoCrossing data center". ColoCrossing still has hundreds of thousands (literally, out of their 750,000 or so total IPv4 addresses under management).

It is not legally binding that the server does not have blacklisted IP addresses. Where does it say that it is?

I provided you with the ability to send mail from a clean IP address, which is the only reason why a clean IP is actually needed. I am offering to still search for clean IP addresses for you, just for your satisfaction although there is really no point in having a clean IP if it's not being used for mailing.

they are a bunch of scammer children

Quote:
You can either choose to cooperate with me or dispute your payments via PayPal.

If you choose to dispute your payment via PayPal, we'll fight it to the end and if the payment is closed in our favor, your services would still be terminated and we aren't going to process a refund. The primary argument against your claim is that you are attempting to falsify laws claiming that is illegal for a hosting provider to provide IP addresses that are blacklisted, when it's not. I gave you 2 clean IP addresses which can be fully used to send mail and are offering 3 additional IP addresses which are clean, if you would give me just another day to get them for you.

In addition to disputing your payment via PayPal, you would be reported to fraud databases and potentially collection agencies, as disputing payments for services received is legally considered as fraudulent activity.

If you choose to cooperate with me then I can continue looking for clean IP addresses for you and compensate you for the time lost while looking for the clean addresses accordingly.

Please understand that I am only here to help, and am doing the best that I can to assist you. When you are being completely unreasonable with me, I'm afraid that is when we are going to have to put our foot down and we have professionals in-house to deal with anything that might arise, including disputes (and we have never lost a Paypal dispute in our entire 2 years of being in business, regardless of whether it has been within the U.S, Europe, Asia, etc).

I disagree. If they were scammers, they wouldn't be even talking to you. Instead, they've actually been very professional and polite in their replies. I am impressed.

This shows they have not idea how blacklistings work

Quote:
Terry,

In regards to "I have had invoices bounce back as clients system wont receive the invoices due to blacklisted IPs, which have caused some clients accounts getting suspended for non payment as my cron runs at 3am, this upsets my clients."

They shouldn't bounce back. They should be in their spam folder. If it is bouncing back, something is wrong with your configuration.
