Another theft

They say I signed up for service but no user needs or due diligence carried. 2 monthly sums posted one day after other.

Reject any claims of refund. Sums $286.61 + $262.80 should be refunded.

UK Post Office refusing to charge back as say I signed/clicked on something, even though a quick look on-line shows just what thieves/scammers CoolHandle Hosting are!

    I too got scam they said that they were only charging me 9.95 cent when I check my credit card they charge me 174.40 and I cant even log in to be to cancel and get my refund back

  • Nancy MacDonald

    If we all submit a complaint at we’ll get a refund. By the way Cool Handle has a A+ rating at the BBB because they settled the 80 complaints filed.

    We can also file complaints with the the Federal Trade Commission.

    Cool Handle hides behind their Terms but this, I think, is what we need to focus upon. On the front page there is no mention of being charged for 12 months. It only shows monthly rates. Even when you go to the order form it still shows monthly rates 1 month or 3 are your options. That’s where they are illegal. Until I saw the charge on my credit card I did not know I was being charged for 12 months. And then they hide behind their no refund policy.

    Please spread the word to everyone you know.

    kam_2958-did you file with the BBB in your state or in california?

  • N Williams

    I am having the same problem as below with Secure Online Hosting. Their security certificate does not match their company name. They do not respond to any emails and keep trying to charge me $192!



  • Jim Park

    Cool Handle is a total crook! I signed up for a month at $14.75 and they took $277.75 out of my account, and of course, won’t give me back a penny! They are located outside of the U.S. and you can’t get your money back. That’s obviously what they have planned. The are a bunch of rotten scumbag liars and thieves! Don’t ever give them a dime, because they will steal a lot more, and you will be screwed!

  • kam_2958

    FYI, after filing complaint with BBB, finally got money back

  • Dale Winders

    See my comment above (Dale Winders)…I’m all for joining a class action lawsuit. Count me in!

  • Dale Winders

    Today is 4/15/14. I’m having the exact same problem with not refunding my $262.80 as promised on their website. I cancelled ten days after I was billed and now it’s been over a month. I’ve talked to the cancellation department several times and they always tell me there is NO WAY to reach the refund department except through the support ticket system. The lady today assured me that they will be responding to me soon and I told her that is absolutely NOT true. They have never responded to me except with the automatic email response when I submitted my original cancellation over a month ago. Adam, if you’re reading this, my Invoice number is 999647446 charged to my credit card on 3/3/14. I have never got a response from Adam or anyone else about this refund I’m owed.

    • Teet Ratsep

      I’m in the same shoes as you’re. I’m pretty sure i can take a legal action against them. One address they have is in Florida, one in Los Angeles. You can contact me –

      when I signed up it was suppose to be way less but it ended up costing me more than I expected and the funny thing is I could not get the DNS to work right so I also picked up the Cloudflare and with that it seemed to help get the things in order. Once they set up your web site before it will work you need to go in a verify some things and you must set up that Cpanel and after that its a wizard that will walk you through every little thing I was really hot at them because it seemed like they too forever but it was because it is a lot of technolo stuff and I realize that after I wrote them several emails telling them I was not happy with service and I wanted it fixed. You see when I was waiting for them to put my site up I read everything I could at there site including the Knowledgebase and that is where it explains that you will only get so much back from them because of the fact that they have to pay to have your site done for you and it explains pretty much they stand on all levels you should all read that before you get pissed and ask for your money back because your not going to get as much as you think back it really is cheap to have them do this for you and if you give it time it dose work I have a friend who’s site is really bringing in cash I would tell you the address but we are not allowed to send people to our site just to cliick on our stuff its like tabue and they frown on it because that is how you get paid every time a person go’s to where your site is and they click on the other apps that is where you get your commission from just bringing them to look weather they buy or not you are generated money yeah its is weird how it works and in plain english its nothing like what any of those hosting guru’s said which really sucks you know? What gets me is they all swear that there is so much support and no they are crazy when you put in a ticket yes they do get back to you by the next day but you have to put the Id and the code on it and then they answer exactly what you ask and it even let’s you decide weather it is a General Billing Techno and so forth they are a really good company if you understand what they do and what your part and they lie there is more for you to have to do than what they say ok its not just really simple that is snow ball bs.
      I hope your issue is taken care of if not go through the knowledgebase on there site you will learn a lot
      and don’t be afraid to do the tutorials it can help you explain what they do and what you do and what your server dose and they are not the server most the time its either Google or Yahoo. I hope this helped .

    I’ll join that class action if someone starts it, I just got a free site built from them through Profit with Michael and the site is hideous, I wouldn’t want my mother to see it, The support just goes around in circles and never answers your questions. I called support and got a non english speaking person I could not under stand to ask if they were affiliated to Michael and they gave me a mail address that goes to error when you try to contact it. This Michael says on his site he’s going to help you every step of the way. I’m not tech savy by no means but this is scam scam scam to me. Is there a Michael , who is Michael , and where’s my $100 for trying the site. After you pay you get to read the terms and conditions that give you a 30 day refund but they want an additional $100 early termination fee for setting up the free site. Rite off the bat they stuck me with a $14.90 domain fee I was unaware of and $29.95 for hosting when Michaels site said it would be $29.00.Countless support tickets just to get a tell nothing response to your questions. This is just bad business.

    • Tina

      Is this an educated person speaking? I don’t understand this post.

  • Lynne Randall

    I have had the exact same experience with Cool Handle as Lawrence. I have called and emailed and nothing seems to work. I just got off the phone with them and was told that someone would email me in the next 24 hours. I don’t want emails I want my money back.

  • cathy dominick

    Dear Adam R. I have sent you countless emails and tried several phone calls to get through to you and yet all I get is a new ticket and no information. Why is that? I simply want a refund for my 358$ and I know I am due a refund as I have never even so much as logged into your site, nor will I ever. I have tried to be polite at times and give you a chance to refund and you still act as though you don’t know anything about it. I am on the verge of hiring a lawyer or going to a tv station to air my grievances about you and your company. I have every email ever sent to you and every phone call has been recorded.. I think they would like to know how you cheat the already poor people of America.. I don’t know how else to get it through to you that I want my money back and you had no right to take it to begin with. RWV-508967

  • cathy dominick

    I have been trying since Monday May 6 2013 to get a refund, nothing has happened and nobody responds. I have sent so many emails that I’m clogging up my folders and still nobody responds. I have talked to countless people and turned in my refund ticket atleast 50 times..(RWV- 508967) and the act as though they dont have it.. its’ 358$ that we need because I am unemployed at this time. I am at my wits end and ready to contact my lawyer or a television channel so they can air what fakes and frauds these people are. No matter who I talk to I get a different answer and they just make a different ticket which I then get told will slow things down even more.. I am tired of all this and only want my money back and to never hear of this company again..

  • Mark

    This company needs a class action lawsuit. If we can get all those who have not been refunded, we can take them to court and sue, not only for what they owe us, but also for false advertising, false claims, etc. The law suit would way more then they owe us.

    • cathy dominick

      I am with you a hundred and ten percent. This company needs taken down and I’m tired of waiting to get a reply from them. Now they act as though they don’t know who I am. I have every email I ever sent them and phone calls to.. all saved and ready to present to a lawyer.. whenever you are ready..

  • I’ve also been TRYING to get a refund since September 17, 2012 and haven’t gotten it yet!! That’s $358 and I’m in desperate need of that money since we have a 1 year old!! I’m to the point of getting a lawyer. I’ve done EVERYTHING they’ve asked a DOZEN tines and still nothing from billing! Please help!

    • cathy dominick

      I mistakenly hit my button and knew it was wrong so I called moments after to cancel and they said it would take five to seven days to get a refund and its been over a week and now they act as though they don’t know who I am or that I have a refund ticket already turned in .. I have sent emails and dozens of phone calls and still nothing.. I need my money as I am on unemployment for the moment.. they quite literally stole from my account.. I think we need to get a lawsuit going for those of us who have been cheated.. seems to be quite a few of us out there..

      • Susan Payne

        Hi all, I am also having massive problem with coolhandle and getting a refund after they took $179.40 from my account instead of the $9.95 for a month. I only went ahead with the lowest price option because I believed all the promises and guarantees of refund, Have spent nearly two months and countless e-mails to try to get my refund but no luck so far, I’ve filed a complaint with BBB who tell me they have submitted copy to Coolhandle. the company have until 30th May 2015 to respond to my complaint via BBB, but I don’t hold out much hope. They took all of my emergency overdraft and massive fees are still adding up. If any of you do band together to take legal action please add me, I’m in the UK, All my e-mails remain unanswered for the last two weeks.

    • cathy dominick

      I have sent you several request to cancel services.. mind you that I never used anything from you.. and still you do not refund my money.. I am due a total refund but instead of just doing it you and your people act as though you don’t know who I am. Well I am tired of having to call and speak to people who can do nothing and know even less.. I have kept any and all email and phone calls from and to you and your company requesting a refund of the money you had no right to take to begin with since I cancel a moment after pushing the button.. In case you have forgotten my ticket number is RWV 508967 and my name is Cathy Dominick..
