1&1 Ionos Complaints & Reviews

1&1 Internet Ltd.refuse to cancel account

I have been trying to cancel my account with 1 & 1 internet ltd for about three months. They just keep fobbing me off with excuses. I had an email a few days ago saying I had insufficient funds in my paypal account. I wonder why! This morning I receive a letter through the post with the same information telling me to update my funds in paypal, so I can afford to pay. Do you think I can afford to do this, no. This is why I have decided to do some research, and was surprised to see so many people having similar problems.
I wanted to cancel my account originally because the site was not what I wanted, but now I don't want anything to do with the company ever again. Why do people have to scam others? How are other people to get on managing a business online with scammers like these and others. I think there should be some stricter rules on the internet, to find these companies out sooner, before ripping us off.

      I have to cancel my pay pal account I have had for years because 1&1 websites will not cancel my account. I have made 3 attempts. They give me erroneous info on how to cancel. Another "foreign" voice with broken English told me after I asked to cancel on the second try- "ok, please hold and I will transfer you to the customer service ". When she transferred my call to cancel, a recording came on and said, " I am sorry you have called at a time outside of our business hours of 9-5 PM EST. " It was 4:30 PM EST. I am
      not happy with their set up on how to build a website. It is extremely customer unfriendly.
      Now, on top of the frustration of not being able to use their site they refuse to cancel my account by giving me the run around. On the cancellation webpage it won't take my customer number- keeps telling me it is wrong. When I talked to the girl she got into my account with it and I told her I was putting in the correct number before and it said it was wrong. They have it setup to not cancel so they can charge your card. I have not checked yet but I can assure you they have charged something on my card before the 14 day free trial. I would recommend everyone to stay away from these people and now after I signed up i find they are not in the United States. (UK). unedited for typos, etc.

    1and1.comavoid at all costs 1and1 free trial & tribulation.

    Hi, please read this.

    I have somehow received a free trial from 1&1. It may have been triggered from a sales call from the usa. It resulted in an e-mail welcoming me to a free trial. The e-mail ended up unbeknown to me in my spam folder. And there it stayed. I am now being charged & pound;70.00 per quarter for a service I did not ask for. I only became aware of this charge when I inspected my pay-pal account and saw the 1&1 debit. Incredulous as to the source of the charge I searched my mail account for 1&1 related e-mails. It was then I located the free trial details in my spam folder.

    At the foot of the 'free trial' introduction was a number to call should one choose not to use the service offered. Failure to call the number to cancel the trial within the specified time period automatically gives 1&1 the right to charge for the service. As I have an existing domain 1&1 have my payment details.

    I am pretty devastated this has happened and the sharp practice used appears legal.

    So, my message is 1and1 are using stealth & sharp practice to sucker people into useless services at an outrageous cost. I call it white collared theft.

    I asked for a refund as the package is unused, no contract has been signed and no invoice received by me. They rejected my request and here I am on this forum joining you as a disillusioned fellow victim. I am going to attack 1and1 in any way I legally can.

    Watchdog next.

        1&1 create your own web-page service is appalling, the service is amateurish. They pass the details on to a debt collecting agency who then chase. No contract signed, not even able to produce one either. Avoid 1&1 at all costs. Unless you actually want a money sucking website that is. Go to Big Commerce. I could not recommend that web solution highly enough.

        Exact same thing here. Seem's like theft to me, offering a free trial and then charging for the service even if you didn't use it or want it.

        I am a victim too of this horrid bunch of Sharks 1&1 they claim I did not cancel my account within the trial period so I owe them over £50.00 for nothing. They took £18.00 set up fee even though I decided very quickly they are not good enough to be my webstie provider. Avoid them at all cost. All they do is harrass me for money for nothing, and insist I have to pay.
        They need sorting out Watchdog next as well.

      1and1.comcustomer service

      1and1.com is the worst company ever!!! I have never experienced a customer service with no technical expertise (Which you would assume they should have at this company). On the top of that that would put you on hold for a where long time. My record time with them pon the phone 101 minutes (Stayed with them out of principal) and they stil did not fix the problem. Let me rephrase... They still did not understand my question. The funny part they speak great english. Here is the solution for all of those who are tured of this company. Send an email or connect to the ceo of 1and1.com - oliver mauss - german guy and complain to him!!!

          1and1.combilling practices

          1and1 Internet has auto-renew of your registered domain names. If your credit card changes, they cannot rebill, so they send you an innocuous e-mail asking you to update your credit card. The subject line of the e-mail does not state that there is a payment owing or asking whether you do want to renew the domain names. Once it is sent to collection, the intiial collection fee (~$20)is larger than the renewal fee. In addition, the collection agency charges a $12 processing fee. This company has poor and unethical business practices. BEWARE!

              1and1.comfraud

              Wow, so I saw my credit card was billed over $500 by this company.
              The thing is, I dont have an account with them. I have never had an account with them.
              I have never used them for anything. I have never even heard about them.
              I have no idea how they got my cc info (Which ive already cancelled and reported them for fraud with)

              I need to wait till monday to speak with their billing department, but needless to say, i'm livid.

                    My name is Kal Uka, just yesterday, I registered a domain name /hosting known as; stankaypulpitblog.com at a total billing of $10/month and payment should start after 30 days trial. After they have taken my card details, I was asked to login into my account. Up till now, their line is not going either user name is not correct or the password is not correct. They promise to reset my password but for almost 24hours now, I have not received an email confirming our transaction. What do I do now before it is too late?

                    JUNE 4 2012-cancelled service after the scam billed me last year. They sent me to collections again. They have horrendous customer service and should be investigated by the FCC or dateline or somebody. CON-ARTIST SCAM

                    Pay attention people. This company will charge you until the cows come home. Oh, you don't have any cows? Whoa! You're in real trouble.

                    Use them at your own risk.

                  1&1aggressive unscrupulous tactics by 1&1

                  Be ware of aggressive tactics by 1&1 preventing cancellation of services. Two years ago I cancelled services with 1&1 due to lost emails, in-bound and out-bound. After one year of documenting the lost emails, 1&1 blamed every one else under the sun and questioned my ability to understand what was happening. When I cancelled their services on a specific date, they continued charging me after that date. Even with letters to the bbb and reporting this to the arizona attorney general, I had to block payment at my bank to end the charges. Two weeks ago 1&1 sent an email informing me they changed my internet settings, which was done without my knowledge or approval, back to 1&1 servers. This action effectively blocked all inbound and outbound emails from the company I have been working with for two years. My guess is these aggressive and unscrupulous tactics by 1&1 are the only way they can keep clients as their services are deplorable. Solution? Stay away from 1&1. If you leave 1&1 and register your domain name elsewhere, make it private and change the password regularly.

                      Really upset by 1&1. I was trapped by 1&1 domain offer from 0.99 per month first year. That's gutted. I thought there is no harm to take a trial. After that trial period, we emailed them to cancel the trial as 1&1 is not easy to use. But they did not reply my email until I keep emailing them. Then they refused to cancel it for the reason as the trail period was expired. Actually I emailed them immediately after I found this is not kind of service I need within the trail period. Their service is even worse than any giant letter "B" companies. I don't think such commercial company can delivery any services, apart demaining money by settting up different kind of tricks. After 2 months, like most 1&1 users complaint, they start to increase the bills to 24.99GBP PLUS some wrong charges .
                      I'm keeping pay this amount of money every month without using them for a year now. Hidden charges, unfair trade. Hope someone can take action or regulation to stop this.

                    1&1 Internet, Inc.fraudulent billing

                    I purchased web hosting services from 1 and 1 and after using them for awhile, discovered their services to be mediocre. Nearing the end of my contract with 1 and 1, I called and spoke with their cancellation department, who confirmed my cancellation request. Now, months later, 1 & 1 emailed me to say they are trying to charge my credit card and that I owe them money! They even threatened to send me to collections and charge more money for processing. 1 and 1 refuses to recognize my "confirmed" cancellation request and has no explanation for why they took months to request money from me. Their phone support is poor, but their customer service on this issue were very aggressive and over-talked me a lot, like i'd cave-in if I couldn't get a word in to defend myself. I feel that 1 and 1 is despicable for having the policy that "customers are always wrong. " do not use 1 and 1 without being prepared to proactively defend ourself, and be prepared to send a legal letter with signature requests to confirm your cancellation!!

                        1&1 angered me today! I had just purchased a domain name, and they double charged me. For me to receive those "phantom" charges back, I needed a Merchant ID number and an Authorization number for my bank. I spoke to a supervisor, who told me that they do not have an authorization number, and that they were NOT going to speak to my bank, for me to receive my funds before the 7 day period. I know this woman lied, for if you receive funds by credit card, you have to have an authorization code, and she explicitly told me that they have no way in providing that information. Also, not only was she going to NOT speak to the bank (who was on the other line listening to them), but they had no way of faxing a message to the bank explaining why they could not provide the authorization code - so that I could receive my funds. The bank was shocked at their response and said that they have horrible customer relations. Now I must transfer my domain names to another domain name provider. I do NOT recommend 1&1 to anyone (not even to the enemy).

                      1&1rip off

                      Wow! So, somehow my wife and I got involved with getting a "domain name" through these guys. I'm not a techie nor do I really know what a domain name is, I never used what they sold us, but we got it anyway. Every few to 6 months we would get a call from some polite sales guy trying to sell us more stuff that we couldn't use. I would always tell them, and make it very clear, that I didn't even know what I had from them or how to use it. I know, that is my fault and i'm not blaming them, I am the dummy here. What did bother me to the point of writing my first complaint ever is that one of the sales guys signed me up for something that I have no use for and I don't even know what it was and that I refused in the first place! Anyway I just got some kind of threat in the mail that they were going to send me to collections, I called them up and that's how I found all of this out. Yes, shame on me for not paying attention to my credit card billing, but shame on them for committing fraud. I called and tried to get to their cancellation department, it took over 15 mins of wait time. While I was on hold, I called using my wife's this time I pushed "new accounts" or "sales" and withing 25 seconds from dialing, I was talking to a human... Go figure. Also while on hold I googled " 1&1 scam and found this site and read a bunch of same similar stories of how this company is really not that ethical. So sad. Anyway, I hope that this helped someone out. This mistake cost me around $300. Fortunately, that's not going to break me, but it did caused me to write and publicize my first complaint ever. I'm sure that they are good to a lot of their customers, but this is how they were with me. I did end up talking to a nice young lady named stephanie who helped me cancel. Even though I was upset at the company she was polite and professional with me... It's the sales guys that rip people off that bother me, (Please don't discredit my complaint because of what I am about to write) but I hope that they die a slow painful death, like being chained to the bottom of an out house and slowly getting drowned by raw fecal matter and urine... And flies and maggots.

                        1&1escort agency scam

                        I saw an advert in the friday ad for Ivy Escorts. I applied online and within an hour they phoned me to process my application. They said that the fee for my membership should have cost £365 but because i am a student they would reduce it to £200 of which i paid. I then heard nothing for 2 months so I sent them an email of which the duty manager phoned me and said she had a VIP client interested but to upgrade my member ship would cost £2000 but as i was a student they could do it for £1000 but i refused. About three weeks later i phoned Ivy Escorts to see why i still had no work and a gye called kevin would look into my case. After a week he said i would be most successful on a Europian memebership which would cost me £650 but i negociated it to £350 becasue i was promised there were clients waiting to book me. All together I have paid £550 to Ivy Escorts with the promise of work and still i am waiting.

                          1&1no customer service!!

                          I had Yahoo email service for years, then all of a sudden in the past two years, I had nothing but problems, so I switched to an email service that is ONLY email service. I switched to gmx.com, it seemed pretty decent at the time I was researching it.

                          I have some friends who have not been able to send me emails, they keep getting "mailer daemon" when they try and email me at gmx.com. I have also never received two important emails, which cannot be resent, so they are lost and I am screwed.

                          I have been emailing thier "service" email and keep getting this stupid auotmated email about having to fill out a "feedback" form even to get help with website problems. Two things wrong with this...one, they dont list enough options on the form, and two, it doesnt matter what you write in the "feedback" form, all you get is an automated response which has NOTHING to do with my problems Im having.

                          Ive tried to look online for a phone number, but all I find are links to articles and complaints about this company/site. This company sucks!
                          There is NO customer service, and NO way to call them! Im sure if I write a letter, it will conveniently get "lost" in the mail.

                          DONT USE THIER SERVICES!!!

                              I have several email accounts with Yahoo, but they have so over imposed dynamic advertising that I can't even function on the site. Have to wit for all the ads to load before you can click whatever you need to get on with your email tasking. Plus, the ad overload has made many other functions absolutely dysfunctional. So I begin switching to GMX, but have had repeated problems logging in, even though everything is typed correctly. Also tried to begin a new email account at GMX and at the very end of the process, got "Sorry your request cannot be completed by our servers at this time." So I went to mail.com and tried using different info but got the same message. Then I realized 1&1 Media was serving them both, so I searched it out and found that others are complaining also. The customer service function is a joke. GMX gives a toll free 24/7 phone number, but a message comes on saying number no longer in service. Seems to me 1&1 may have gotten too big for its britches and can't handle it all. Mostly I am trying to find out if google is in anyway connected to 1&1. Does anyone out there know? Google's partnership with the gov is just plain spooky.

                              I agree. They are also the servers of mail.com. I paid for a premier account for my business and two months in had the same problem. My emails were being rejected and not delivered. After numerous complaints they told me their servers were placed on a spam block list and although they were very apologetic, refused to cancel and give me a prorated refund. My card on file expired so it didn't pay at renewal. Now they are threatening to submit my 2nd year cost to collections and my credit report. I once again tried to cancel but they are telling me they can't cancel accounts that are past due. So they want me to pay for another year again for service that cost me time and business, and that I haven't used in 9 months before they will allow me to cancel. Unbelievable! Don't use!

                            1and1.comthey are gone with my money and hundreds of domains I had at 1and1

                            I advise people to check out web hosts and domain registers very carefully before committing. I have come to the conclusion that I made the dreadful error of choosing a company because it had a 5 page ad in a popular computer magazine. I believe I have put my trust in a straw man.In my opinion 1and1, with ceo oliver mauss, is a horrible company and many customers have voiced a host of complaints on various blogs. It should be a warning that when their phone is answered by a recording that tells you if you have gotten a notice from nco, a collection agency, to press a certain number. If they are a reputable business, why do they have to send so many accounts to a collection agency? Patrick frey (Patterico) of the los angeles district attorneys office alleges his domain was high jacked and put up for auction on sedo. Sedo is an associate company of 1and1. Patterico: "i believe i'm facing massive incompetence, thievery, or very possibly a deliberate combination of the two. It feels like evil intent & mdash; but not for political reasons. It feels like cyber extortion & mdash; people going after the almighty dollar. Commenter's have pointed out corporate ties between 1&1, which can't seem to process my timely renewal, and sedo/domcollect, which stood to profit from 1&1's failure. Usually, corporate incompetence does not earn the corporation money & mdash; but 1&1 and its related companies have found a way to make money off of their own slipshod procedures. " patterico was able to regain his domain. Also investigative journalist, kelli jack, has written 30 articles about this company and has a suit pending against them. Kelli alleges that 1and1 stole her domain name and sold it. Kelli states: "1and1 should be shut down. " as of today kelli is working with the pennsylvania attorney general. I have filed complaints with the federal bureau of investigation, federal trade commission, eastern pennsylvania better business bureau, icann, and others. I recommend everyone else having a problem consider doing the same.

                            The washington dc, pennsylvania better business bureau has given 1and1 their lowest rating: "f. " read comments on the bbb why. Read some customer comments on red flag. Don't bother trying to access my 2 url: warthpublishinginc.com, migraine-abort.com they are gone with my money and hundreds of domains I had at 1and1.

                                1and1 is a dishonest and dysfunctional company. it needs to be SHUT DOWN by the government, if not by the public (by eliminating the customer base). Everyone should contact the Penn government agencies to register a complaint or affidavit in support of the plaintiff. This is your civic duty toward others who have not yet been hurt by this despicable company - DO IT to prevent others from harm perpetrated by 1and1 against its own customers.

                              1and1.co.ukputting me in the hands of a debt collector when the invoice had been paid

                              I am now desperate for help on this problem with 1and1; they seem to have locked me into to their operation in someway. Please let me explain.

                              I transferred two domains of my own without problem to 1and1 in March 2010, and paying by my credit card. As my son was about to open his own business I though it a good idea for website presence with his own domain name, as a marketing tool for him. So I purchased a .com domain and two .co.uk domain names with a basic web hosting package.

                              I noticed that it was possible to made payments through PayPal, my preferred method of making payments over the internet. I did not like following the link for payment that 1and 1 provided to PayPal because I never follow links to make Internet payments. So I opened up my PayPal account and authorised the full payment for the invoice account for my son’s domains and basic hosting package.

                              PayPal paid the amount to the full invoice total required by 1and1. Acknowledgement of this was never mentioned by 1and1; instead we were being threatened with the bad debt collection agency. I have a 2gb USB Pen almost full of the letters and emails 1and1 ignored, or never really read my complaint, I became so frustrated that I believed, my emails where only being read by robots and well my posted letters never got answered at all, I even recorded a couple of letters but even they where ignored.

                              Now for the first time in our lives we where landed with the bad debt collection agency, for double the amount, this we paid instantly because we are aware of the trouble these organisations can cause you. I contacted all departments of 1and1 to explain that in fact this account had been paid out of my PayPal account and that I did have a receipt. They still kept sending me noreply emails explaining how to change my payment details, I had to kept sending letters and emails back explaining that the control panel would not let me change the payment details from PayPal to credit card, but the robots took no notice.

                              I am puzzled as to how they have my hotmail address when I have never registered this with them? They must have picked it up from their link to my PayPal account. Without informing me two months later they put back into my PayPal account the amount that I had authorised for payment I also have this copy on my USB Pen.

                              To date we still have not been able to upload our website best part of the time passwords are not accepted and you have to go into https://admin.1and1.co.uk, only to find I was not inputting the wrong password anyway.

                              And the problems start again this year, our .com account was due on 19th March I have been trying since then to sort the payment method out again would you believe they are still trying to access my PayPal account, and again I have been trying to change the method of payment from PayPal to credit card but still the control panel reports error.

                              So I sent them a cheque for the full amount and today an email received says payment of the cheque has been refused, this has not been done from my end.

                              I need to find out what a billing agreement B-38P55702VX867264K means???

                              I’m now just waiting again for the bad debt collector letter to drop through my door. They say I am on automatic payment, I do not want to be on this I like to pay as I go, yet I cannot find out how to make these changes.

                              The Control Panel does let me change address, phone numbers, email address but not the method of payment.

                              When reading the small print it seems when you pay by PayPal you have to have £350 each month in your PayPal account so that they can help themselves.

                              I do not have that kind of account and PayPal would not allow anyone just to go into my account and make deduction like a direct debit. I am really feeling too ill to cope with all this again this year can you please advise me just what I can do.

                              I have tried looking at others who have had problems with 1and 1 but nobody seems to have got a solution what-so-ever. I have explained to 1and1 numerous times that I am deaf and cannot use the telephone to sort this problem out but no response. I now want to transfer all my Domains somewhere else but I will have to be careful after such a bad experience with 1and1. Please advise, Thank You

                              Update I have finally found the Companys General Rules and Conditions and searched for the B-38P55702VX867264K, but there is no such mention.

                              I have also sent an email to [protected]@1and1.co.uk to tell them I do not want hosting this year and that I intend to register my domain with another company. Since then today I find they have blocked amazongaragedoors.com

                                I advise people to check out web hosts and domain registers very carefully before committing. I have come to the conclusion that I made the dreadful error of choosing a company because it had a 5 page ad in a popular computer magazine. I believe I have put my trust in a straw man. In my opinion 1and1, with CEO Oliver Mauss, is a horrible company and many customers have voiced a host of complaints on various blogs. It should be a warning that when their phone is answered by a recording that tells you if you have gotten a notice from NCO, a collection agency, to press a certain number. If they are a reputable business, why do they have to send so many accounts to a collection agency? Patrick Frey (Patterico) of the Los Angeles District Attorneys Office alleges his domain was high jacked and put up for auction on SEDO. SEDO is an associate company of 1and1. Patterico: "I believe I'm facing massive incompetence, thievery, or very possibly a deliberate combination of the two. It feels like evil intent — but not for political reasons. It feels like cyber extortion — people going after the almighty dollar. Commenter's have pointed out corporate ties between 1&1, which can't seem to process my timely renewal, and Sedo/Domcollect, which stood to profit from 1&1's failure. Usually, corporate incompetence does not earn the corporation money — but 1&1 and its related companies have found a way to make money off of their own slipshod procedures." Patterico was able to regain his domain. Also Investigative journalist, Kelli Jack, has written 30 articles about this company and has a suit pending against them. Kelli alleges that 1and1 stole her domain name and sold it. Kelli states: "1and1 should be shut down." As of today Kelli is working with the Pennsylvania Attorney General. I have filed complaints with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Federal Trade Commission, Eastern Pennsylvania Better Business Bureau, ICANN, and others. I recommend everyone else having a problem consider doing the same.

                                The Washington DC, Pennsylvania Better Business Bureau has given 1and1 their lowest rating: "F." Read comments on the BBB why. Read some customer comments on Red Flag. Don't bother trying to access my 2 URL: warthpublishinginc.com, Migraine-Abort.com They are gone with my money and hundreds of domains I had at 1and1.

                                    I signed up for the basic 2.95 domain. When I printed their bill it said 17.95. I had also signed up for Norton, which I didn't want. So I immediately cancelled. I tried calling but they only work M-F 9to5, so I emailed and told them to cancel, they did and sent me a cancellation verification email. Luckily I saved it. anyway... 1month later I went to my bank and they had waited 30 days to put thru a charge, so I took my cancellation to the bank and they reversed the charge and closed my account. Now 1 yr later May 2009 I get this dirty letter from NCO Financial saying I owe 24.95 to 1&1 Internet Service. They refused to remove the collection until they investigate. I can't believe what a scam this company has going on. I'm turning it over to the Iowa Attorney General's office and the FED Trade Commission Isn't anyone monitoring these online scavengers and the collection low lifes?? Where's our Gov when we need them???

                                    I cancelled the services with this company and got emailed confirmation from them to advise contract was cancelled.
                                    Little did I know they would still take monies from my account depsite assurances from their CSR that they would not.
                                    I emailed them and they came back and advised that I had not cancelled the account, depsite the fact that I received email verification.

                                    On looking at the Internet there are thousands of complaints about this company. My advice, STAY WELL CLEAR OF THEM
