Avoid Frozen Midnight at all costs.

Jem has done such a great job on her new article, that I really don’t want to try to post about anything new.

On the 2nd of July (this year) a friend of mine received an e-mail from “Frozen Midnight, LLC” hosting. The e-mail contained threats of legal action, the involvement of the local law enforcement and demands of grossly inflated fines because my friend’s account had apparently been caught breaking the Frozen Midnight terms of service. In a fluster, my friend agreed to pay a set price each month providing FM could prove that there had been malicious activity from the account concerned. At the same time, she posted a public cry for help because this was not something that had happened to her before.

After some delay FM got back in touch with some PDFs, claiming that my friend owed them hundreds of dollars and that she must pay within 3 months. However, upon closer inspection of the PDFs it seemed that while — yes, one of FM‘s servers had been used to execute a DoS attack (amongst other things) — the server IP that my friend was originally on did not correspond with the IP of the exploited server or show any connection whatsoever.

You can read the rest of Jem’s article by visiting Frozen Midnight: Defrauding Customers. But to add onto it, if you do know someone that has been contacted by Jamie Timbre of Frozen Midnight with charges for hacking, phishing, DoS, or anything else of that nature, please contact me!

  1. I’ve read some pretty nasty reviews about FMH, and this just tops it off. I remember when I was first looking for a paid host, I was considering them. Thank goodness I didn’t go with them though. It’s extremely nice of you to help out the ‘victims’ of FMH. 🙂

  2. I’ve read this on a few blogs already, and it sounds really horrible. I hope a lot of people hosted by FMH hear about this and switch immediately. Like Alex said, it’s nice of you and Jem and whoever else posting about this to help out the people being scammed by FMH.

  3. Ugh. That’s… beyond words, how positively nasty that is.

    I hope people can switch quickly… and that they can get whatever refund they’re entitled to… although with this kind of record it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. :

    pssst… your contact link is b0rked on the entry page!

  4. That’s horrible, thankfully you and Jem did some digging. I plugged it on my own blog and made a topic at Despair.nu about it in case some members there were hosted there or considered being hosted there. Good work 🙂

  5. It’s so nice of you guys to help the poor people hosted there out! I hope he will feel some consequenses soon!

  6. I read about this on Jem’s blog already but it’s nice to see people are passing this on! Have you seen Jamie’s response to all this negative publicity on frozenmidnighthosting.com ? His latest news post on “Illegitimate Accusations” is simply hilarious. He’s digging a hole for himself and we can see that in his comments on webhostingtalk.com already. I’d like to see the day his “company” fails when all his customers run away 🙂

  7. This whole fiasco has been very interesting. I read his little bullshit Accusations pdf file and I was not impressed nor threatened.

  8. I know a couple of people that run their own “hosting” but either neglect their clients or are simply incompetent. This, however, is the first time I’ve heard of someone who is trying to hose their clients for big money.

  9. Yikes… It’s so hard to find a good host these days… I can’t believe some would do that – well, actually I can – but ugh. *sigh…
