Sean looks for a little help from DNS Made Easy after he (admittedly) screwed up, and gets clubbed about the head and shoulders with one of the worst bits of customer (ahem) service I’ve heard of. The note is from "Kate" at DNSMadeEasy to Sean. An excerpt:
"Wow…. Spent hours trying to help you today. Offered you
a refund even though we have a zero refund policy and this is the
attitude you give me?!?!?!

Are you joking me? You expect us to send you personal letters by
mail? For an account of your size? Should we fly to your house also and
knock on your door? Should I call your whole family also and let them
know you are late paying your bill?
Please…. this obviously is not a business for you.

It was frozen for 4 days then removed. Not our fault that your
client noticed after it was removed. Not our fault if you give us your
free yahoo account to check your emails. Not our fault you do not check
your free email’s spam box.
Since you made a list for me, here is a list for you.
- Don’t use your free yahoo email account for hobby / business. Did
you tell your friend / client that is why you lost all of their email?
- Learn to write down when your services expire. You are lucky we
gave you over 2 weeks. Most providers shut you down much sooner.
- Always pay your bills on time.
- Don’t be rude to people that have tried to help you for free…. Eventually no one will try to help you.
