Throughout our leasing period, Ghosh removed our access from the subdomain. After paying for a full month, the seller Ghosh decided to remove our DNS access. Upon further investigation, we decided it would be best to get Paypal involved as they have the “Buyer Protection Program” accessible to buyers. Luckily, we were still in the period of being able to open disputes with this seller, and we sent all documentation to Paypal in order to have them review how we believe the scam artist Ghosh scammed us. Upon Paypal’s further review, they decided the case in our favor: We’re not sure how many times Ghosh has received payments for services before and not rendered them as he did with us, but we’re happy Paypal was able to protect us, the buyer. We recommend anyone who does business dealings with Ghosh to think twice, as we could’ve ended up losing $750 if we never had buyer protection with Paypal.
