Trust me...you are NOT alone in this! These con-artists got a LOT of people from all over the country!
If you are still interested in going after them, please post. There is a group of us who are going to take them to court...possibly Class Action suit.

Thirdly, he said I could transfer websites from other hosts to their server(s), without loosing the structure nor content of the web site (False, I tried to move my website from my previous host to their site and I lost everything, I had to recreate everything from scratch, tech support told me I was out of luck if I did not have the original site saved somewhere. Listen to this, even with the website content, I had to use copy and paste, to recreate my website, defeating every reason I had joined them. ) My original plan was to transfer all those domains I had to them so I could make money on hosting as a reseller. I found myself having to spent more time talking to lousy support on toll calls. Needless to say I wasnít very happy and I started looking on the web for reselling plans and thatís when I learned what a mistake I had made. I think theirs is an outright scam because they only gave me 3 days to get a refund and they falsified information to get me to sign up. I was a fool to even have associated with these mothers.. but ignorance got the better of me and I should have no excuse, However if more people have the same problem maybe this could be an intelligent scam these people are running. I know there are probably no lawyers here but any and all help is appreciated. They took $4000 out of my pocket and here I am seeking your advice.
Guys, can you tell me what you are talking about? I've never heard of these hosting companies (Global Web and Cyberwings). Judging your reports they are swindlers. Am I right? Share your experience with us.
