© UsenetServer | 120 22nd Ave S. #146, Brookings, SD 57006 they sent me a email yesterday once again trying to scam me. Their so called service never worked for me and even after I cancelled the service which they acknowledged they continued to bill my credit card. I was able to get some of the money refunded by them but I figure they owe me 2 grand. Could you please cancel their mailbox since it is being used for fraud. Have great weekend.!!!

>I am a detective with the Brookings Police Department. I was asked to look into your complaint regarding USENET. As of right now I don’t have a ton of answers but wanted to let you know what I’ve found out so far. The address listed for USENET is actually our local UPS Store. I was able to confirm with UPS USENET does have a mailbox at the store #146. I have identified the person who set up the box as a male out of Winter Park, Florida. It also appears he has a similar online business set up called Easynews, which comes back to a UPS store in Miami Florida. The phone numbers for both businesses appear to be out of Phoenix, AZ and I believe they are both VOIP numbers, which is quite unusual for a legitimate business. I believe I have also identified a legitimate business which this guy does work for in Winter Park, Florida so I am planning on doing some follow up with that company to see if I can find anything else out about him. I know these aren’t real answers right now but I can
>tell you there is no physical business her in Brookings, South Dakota that business operates out of and as far as I can tell no “employees” for the business here either. Why he chose to use a UPS mailbox in South Dakota is puzzling as well but I will continue to dig on this and see what I can find. I will let you know what I do find out regarding this. If you have any questions please let me know.

>On May 4, 2011, Highwinds announced that it had secured a $50 million[12] credit facility with Silicon Valley Bank and Comerica Bank. According to the press release from the company, the new credit facility allowed Highwinds to achieve a more attractive all-in cost of capital and was evidence of the company's impressive financial profile.

>On August 8, 2013, Highwinds announced that it had secured $205 million[13] in new financing. The transaction was led by Cerberus Business Finance, LLC and Goldman Sachs BDC, Inc., an investment fund managed by Goldman Sachs Asset Management, L.P., with participation from the company's existing equity sponsor, General Catalyst Partners, and the company's management team. The funding positioned Highwinds for massive growth of its global CDN.

>On February 4, 2017, Highwinds was acquired by StackPath, a cloud services company.[14] Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed. As quoted in their blog, "Highwinds' services and platform will be integrated with existing StackPath offerings and operations to create a single global platform with the industry's best security features and performance."

>HW Media (the part of Highwinds still owned by Omicron Media) is well known for its reseller services and claiming to be the Usenet server with the largest retention. However, resellers of HW media fail to disclose that they work with the company. Most people who buy multiple accounts for increased binary completion end up buying multiple accounts from different HW resellers. This leads to people paying multiple times for the same service. This has drawn criticism from Usenet users that HW Media is trying to deceive customers by not making their resellers disclose their affiliation with HW Media.

New reply for the ticket #UNS00033125

Hello.

I am very sorry that your experience has not been a good one. We strive to keep our customers happy, so let's see what we can do here. I see that were were charged $95.40 on the following dates:
2018-04-13
2019-04-13
2020-04-13

You filed a chargeback for the most recent charge on 2020-04-29. We would like to go ahead and refund the other two charges, but they are too old, and our payment processors will not allow it. However, if you could please send us a PayPal address, we can send you a refund for the other two charges (for a total of $190.80).

Please let us know how you would like to proceed.

Regards,
UsenetServer Support

The scam continues but the names of the players remain the same for some reason probably to suck in investors before the whole thing craters into the nearest state prison while the names of the front companies change faster than the specials list at the local watering hole.
