I just had chat with hostgator and here is the transcript.
(not sure if i can post here but if in error i will remove)
Welcome to HostGator Live Chat! You are now chatting with 'Daniel C' Daniel C: Welcome to HostGator, how may I assist you?
johan: hi i believe your company discriminate against sOUTH aFRICANS
Daniel C: How so?
johan: a sa signed up with you payed with paypal and later his account was cancelled because he is from SA
Daniel C: It may have been cancelled due to fraud, but we do not discriminate on ethnicity or origin.
johan: no it wasnt as the money was already processed and now he have to wait for a refund from paypal. one of you people also stated on WHT that you dont except orders from SA unless it is wired and for a full year. Wouldnt you say that is discriminate
Daniel C: Yes, that is our policy.
Daniel C: A lot of fraud does occur in certain areas, so we have updated our policy accordingly.
johan: so you are saying we South Africans cant be trusted?
Daniel C: I am not saying that at all, but the fraud ratings are higher in certain areas.
johan: South Africa?
Daniel C: South Africa, Nigeria, China, among others
johan: I see, why dont you state that on your website then?
Daniel C: I will inform the management, but I have not control on what is on the website.
johan: So Paypal excepts me but you wont?
Daniel C: That is our policy sir.
Daniel C: I cannot change it.
johan: Bad policy and people should know about that. Well i have to take my business elsewhere
Daniel C: Ok, have a great day.
Just wondering if this on there website is truth or what
