Read Complaint Details
Complaint: I had a server colocated with ColoGuard (GalayVisions). I wanted to remove my server from their facility as I was not happy about the quality of service (after having been a customer for two months already). They said that they needed 30 days cancellation notice, and I had to pay for a third month, which I had no problem with. Three days after paying my final invoice, my account was terminated without notice. I contacted them and they said that they had terminated my account because my server had allegedly been attacked. They claimed that such illegal attack (AGAINST me) was against their Acceptable Use Policy, so that is why they terminated my account. What Galaxyvisions/ColoGuard accused me of doing (my colocated server getting DDoSed) was not against their Acceptable Use Policy (they claimed that I violated #2 under their prohibited uses).See their Acceptable Uses Policy Here: http**************************************************************** ******* ******, I did not cause or attempt to cause disruptions in service. I was attacked illegally. They terminated my account on the spot and did not even notify me of it (which they also should - it's also in their Acceptable Use Policy under the Enforcement section):I received no communications from ColoGuard/Galaxyvisions regarding this matter. Additionally, I am no longer responsible for the alleged annual contract as my account has already been terminated by management (they also said I could cancel at any time for any reason, only with 30 days cancellation notice).I had tried, with no success, to work out an agreement with the owner of the business prior to filing this claim.
Desired Settlement: I just want a full refund for the amount I paid ($171.99).
