Scammed by Dacefa? WTF


Well i was lookin for a few days for a dedicated server in holland and came across dacefa.com. Next thing ya know i got the guy on msn messenger and talkin bout pricing for dedicated servers etc. He gives me a quote:

CoreDuo 1.6 ghz - 2 GB - 250 GB - 1500 GIG bandwidth - monthly payment 57,50

So i say cool in the messenger window and i send him the 57.50 euro on july 1st and havent heard from him sinse yet hes always online in msn messenger but dont reply at all to me. I sent him a support ticket on his site also with no response. Is this guy a scam or what?

I sent a complaint in wit paypal so we will see what pans out of th situation.

Sinse.

I guess you've learned the hard way to stay away from offers received on MSN messenger.

Yeah, that's not any better. Regardless, hope you're able to either recover your funds or get the server.

That doesn't make sense, could you please rephrase it?

Maybe you have trouble reading the timestamps on posts, but he made that post about 2 hours before you made your post. Patience is a virtue. Sinsemillia!

Maybe he is upset if he is waiting for ~8 days.
Best way to contact a host is by telephone; nothing beats direct feedback in a conversation with skilled customer support.

I think it's just rediculous that it takes 8 days for delivering a server...
