Until recently i was with a company where i had prepaid for 9 months hosting, they decided to kick me off because i weren't satisfied with the terrible customer service they have!
Anyways, that is a different story, but, i have requested a refund, and as far as i can see, then it does not look like they are willing or is going to provide me with that refund. In total we're talking about $500 USD for the rest of the months i have with them.
I feel that $500 is a little bit to much to just let it go, so my question is, how do i file a police report against this company to make sure that it's looked into by the authorities? This company is a US based company.
How do you do a chargeback with paypal if it is within 6 months since? I tried to find the option without luck!
ooooo consider yourself lucky!
Locate the transaction in your history. On the transaction detail page, look for this at the bottom:
Need help? If you have problems with a transaction or would like assistance settling a dispute with your seller, visit the Resolution Center. PayPal strongly recommends attempting to resolve this issue directly with the merchant or seller whenever possible.
The text Resolution Center will be a link to where you can dispute the charge.
Paypal is really shifty with their chargebacks though. They only go the route that suits them, and not the customer or seller.
So if the seller doesnt have any funds in his account to cover the chargeback, your chargeback request will be declined.
I'd recommend putting a lot of time into trying to come to an agreement with the company in question.
If you take it from a law perspective, it will cost you a lot of $$$ just to get anywhere in the region of a law suit against them and you will NEED to win any kind of case just in order to claim back your pursual costs.
If you decide to take this kind of pursuit I can let you know it'll be a long long time before you get anywhere with it due to not being a resident in the country of the company involved. It will also be extremely difficult to organise.
Take my advice, speak with the company who owes you the money and try to come to an agreement on compensation for premature service cancellation.
Paypal probably won't do anything because of the nature of the goods.
The only way you'll probably get your $ back if your not US based is by getting it back directly from the company.
A lawsuit in Small Claims court could work but your not in the USA so it's not really feasible. A lawsuit in regular court isn't realistic and the police probably would say it's a civil issue that you need to settle yourself.
When you used paypal did the funds come from a credit card? If it did talk to them and they will take the money from paypal and then paypal will then take the money from the seller and if they dont have the funds it will show up as a minus number the they will receive letters from debt collectors. This happened to a friend of my recently and when he asked paypal how can he get away with this Paypal replied something along the lines 'Its a chargeback from the card company, we can't do anything about it'
