Complaint Resolution Log (6)
09/23/2013Problems with Product / Service | Read Complaint Details

Egnyte changed their terms and conditions mid-contract, giving only 30 days to agree to a 1000% increase.
After being with Egnyte for 3 years, they have changed their terms mid-contract and called to state I had 30 days to comply with the 1000% increase or they will lock my account, even though my contract is not up until Feb 2014. I will have to go from $550 per year to $4980 per year for the same level of service. This will cripple my company with my customers. I need the original terms to remain until my current contract ends.

Desired Settlement
To allow my current contract to remain in place until the expiration date of Feb 2014, without this 1000% increase.

Business' Initial Response

06/14/2013Problems with Product / Service | Read Complaint Details

The company lied upon selling our service. We've now over 800.00 due to their horrible service.
We called Egnyte and inquired about using their service as a solution to not working for us. We explained, in detail that we would be uploading thousands of files that needed to be shared to our customers on a daily basis. We were told that as long as we didn't not go over our storage quota, we could send unlimited links to customers which we have been doing. We recently received an email that states, "You've reached your download quota" Our customers are seeing this message which is resulting in us losing money. After calling our sales rep, his only solution was to pay five thousand dollars for an upgrade. Now, the technical support team is refusing our calls.

Desired Settlement
We want the original service we were told we were paying for.

Business' Initial Response
We are sorry that our service has not lived up to the customer's expectations.

We have already issued the customer a full refund in the amount of $45.

I signed up authorizing a $5.99 charge and was billed $119.00
Then they refused to let me cancel the order.
I signed up for the program after seeing it advertised for $5.99. I knew this was monthly and I I believed I would be paying $5.99 a month for as long as I used the program.
So I signed up and entered all my information and the entire time only saw a charge of $5.99 and that is the only charge I authorized.

A few hours later I found out I had been billed for the entire year. $119.00.
So I immediately tried to cancel the program. I did succeed at canceling the program but they refused to reverse the charge.

Desired Settlement
I just want a cancellation of my account with them and I want my money back.

Business' Initial Response

This issue has been resolved and we anticipate that the consumer will retract the complaint. A refund was processed.
