I don't know Mihai Corlan. It's likely neither do you. He doesn't have the luxury of being a blogger for a highly visible Internet newspaper like the Huffington Post. He runs three smaller blogs. That doesn't mean he owes GoDaddy the alarming sum of $5,934.46.
Was the refund a result of my Huffington Post blog or would it have come without it? Most important, will GoDaddy listen up, learn and prevent this situation and others like it in the future?
While my status as a loyal, longtime customer of GoDaddy couldn't prevent this blatant case of robbery from hitting me, perhaps conveying the story online can save you or someone you know the same grief in the future.
