    They have zero tweets too. Seems like the account was deleted and created again.

    Whoever recreated it, if DigiPuss corporate is a jackass:

    "PA, CA, & FL Data Centers / Web Hosting Provider. #1 Budget Resale Program Globally. Established 1991. Brand New PA flagship facility now online!
    Scranton, PA USA"

    Established 1991?  I doubt it.

    PA facility online - NO IT IS NOT.

    Scranton, PA?  They haven't been there since August 2013 roughly.

    BBB note on Burst from last year:

    In November 2013, the BBB notified the company of a pattern of complaint activity alleging the company sent spam emails to consumers and that the company did not correct service issues or distribute refunds that consumers believe were due to them.  The company did not respond to the BBB's request for explanations of the circumstances and request for changes to the business's practices.

    The big question no one in the room has asked and hasn't been asked elsewhere is where are the Arcus brothers in their business plans?

    I for one SUSPECT that Burst.net or some lingering remnant of it will reappear soon.  It won't be this DigiPlus entity in NC that abducted the clients either -  it will be in addition to such.
