Saw this offer on LEB: http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/vpsnodes-7-2048mb-openvz-vps-in-dallas-texas/

An unheard of, random, $7/mo for 2GB RAM company. Great, just what the market needs.

Weird, that's the address of Colo4, which is also where Colocrossing has servers.

But that phone number, +1.4693417742 ... Let's look at that: http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-469-341-7742

Well, that's a giant red-flag. Reports of that number being used in scams.

Website look familiar? It might! It's the old LoveVPS design. http://web.archive.org/web/20130402192637/http://lovevps.com/

Comically enough, if you go to vpsnodes SolusVM page you'll see this:

Notice how the URL in the bottom left of the screenshot shows loveVPS.

 

 

 

Summer isn't over yet, folks. Plenty of time for pump and dumps.

Is there some secret to sleeping with CC to get on lowendbox? One day I'll have an offer there!

What do you mean with 'getting away'? From LET or LEB?

There's plenty of offers from the past year: http://www.lowendbox.com/tag/buyvm-net/
Some were posted because we won draws remember. Some of the storage ones were because Liam was interested in getting them listed.

LE hasn't been a real market for us in quite some time. We used to take part in the front page far more when LEA was involved and took part in the ... 3? versions of the forums that existed.

We get pretty good 'walk in' sales these days and that's why we don't 'have' to adjust our plans or offer deep discounts to spring them.

People are finding out more and more that LE ads just don't have the pull they used to. This isn't hate on the quality of most of the posts either, most of the writers are quite good with only a handful being 'Who did they outsource for this one?'. It's just down to a lot of offers get 'pushed' to the front with at least 1 group of people getting 3 - 4 listings posted within a month.

I'm not sure if Liam has the swing around there to do anything about servermania/etc even if he wanted to.

Why would you even want to be listed there? o_O  We started getting away from that mess well on a year ago just to stop being associated with some of the...  'companies' that place is known for.
 

+1.  I hate to say anything bad bout it, but I'm not a huge fan of the owners there still.

LET has really gone downhill since you have left, @Francisco!
It was on its own way already. Aldryic & I leaving did little to the place minus leaving Chris untrolled for long periods of time; I simply left when I started calling the "CC owns LE" drama.

Their live chat person insists they have never heard of cVPS, and own their equipment.

I asked about their equipment, he quoted the specs direct from the CC website :)

http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/vpsnodes-7-2048mb-openvz-vps-in-dallas-texas/ Take a look at the comments, this is exactly why LEB is so shit these days.  They don't care who they list on the site, they don't care if they are fraud or not.  Hell, they don't even do their own research anymore about a host before listing like LEA did.  LEB is ColoCrossing infected and it's just ridiculous.  This is why I never visit lowendbox.com anymore and only go on LET.  Only recently I am highly considering leaving LET and only participating here.

In regards to this, we did indeed sell it, however the person we have sold it to has since sold it on. (So I have no idea where it went to).

Liam stated that on LEB he:

Just confirm, I asked Ken before the offer went live about the lovevps design and he said he purchased it from matt and sent wht link.
Well, I did not sell it to Ken, so I am a little confused there, however I can confirm the end user has the PSDs so it would be safe to assume that Ken has paid for the site, but Ken did not purchase it from me.

A few days after I sold it I sent in a promomotion to LEB, so how VPSNodes managed to jump up the que after the design being sold for a second time is beyond me, but well things work in mysterious ways.
