    They shut down all operations, and didn't notify a single person, but they charged them all for September! If you use VforVPN you'll need to go through PayPal for a refund. VforVPN website is gone, emails bounce, VPN service no longer connects - poof!

    I'd also call my credit card company and initiate a hold on their monthly charge... at least let the credit card company investigate it.

    Why did they got out of business?
    To less customers?
    To high internal costs?
    Owner is doing something else?

    If he could post that to a message board, it would take all of 5 minutes to put an index.html file with a text only message to www.vforvpn.com which now just times out - or have someone else do it. Having a business comes with responsibilities. I know he's just out of High School, but....

    Hope he's ok. Where did he post that?

    Regardless whether it's the truth or not, I'd drop this service like a hot potato. Privacy is too important for him to forget to do something else on his part that can leave one exposed.

    Bingo. Nobody can know when something might happen to them, but a contingency plan should be in place. I agree with you 100%.
