Globat Nightmare – Part 4

They finally did it.

After complaints, emails, and calls telling this company that I want to be taken off their opt-out list, they finally automatically upgraded me to a hosting account that I don’t want or need, and charged my credit card $49.95.

In case you missed my previous complaints, see nightmare part 3.

Edward from globat had previously contacted me via email regarding this blog and offered to take me out for a drink to talk about it.  I declined but I guess I should have taken him up on it if that’s what it takes to save myself $49.95.

I love the way this email starts.  “Congratulation!”  Yeah.  More like congratulation to globat for stealing $49.95 from me.  And the closing: “We appreciate your business.”  What a joke.

Even after the last time they tried this, I was still willing to give them another chance and keep my account.  But this is clearly the last straw.  It will be a pain in the ass to move my account but I’m not going to take this sitting down.  Bye globat.
