Espace 2001 Scam
On 22nd January 2017, I found a deal on a website that Espace 2001 is offering .org Domain Registration for $8.25 so I decided to go with it.
[17/07/2017 (08:36)] I requested to have my Domain Unlocked and have the EPP Code
[17/07/2017 (12:27)] Guy Himmelsbach says that the verification code has been sent to my email address
[17/07/2017 (15:16)] I replied with the code
Since then, you can see what's really going on and I even renewed my Domain with them to prevent getting expired.
And they didn't want to Transfer my Domain, so this time I opened a PayPal Dispute on 3rd June 2018 and today, look at what they did about an hour ago:
Stay away from espace2001.com (Espace 2001)!
My scroll wheel establishes a labor union.
Their logo looks like it was made in 2001.
is there any tl;dr besides from "scam" ?
Nah, nothing worth to read.
@deank the end is?
The end is 2001.
But the paperwork still hasn't gone through.
Not without more work than I'm prepared to expend on this. All those pictures are really irritating. Why don't you just say what it is?
only thing to glean from this this is that they dont have automated transfer process and OP didnt update contact details?
Old advice - never buy a domain name from the same place you use hosting.
If you want to dispute who owns the domain, or complain about the registrar, there are formal methods.
That few dollars you saved on the domain registration surely doesn't seem worth it anymore.
