    This is what we all say for these low-cost providers.
    For $4 you can get a shared hosting account with a decent provider, how can one offer VPS for $4?
    It is true what they say, you get what you pay for.

    Do you have evidence for service cancellation? If you have you can prove it in front of Debit collectors.

    If it is truly a scam as you say; why not report them to the authorities in the location their business is registered in; or failing that : your own authorities.

    You should also respond to their law firm detailing why you do not owe them any money as well.

    No i do not have any evidence for the cancellation, but here is where it dosent make sense, i bought a month package back in february (2013) and i cancelled it, now they are charging me for some other quarterly package which dosent make sense because i never even made a payment from paypal for this package so how did i even get this service in my account
