I have made several attempts to contact anyone who may help with this issues, but have heard nothing back. How can I get this matter resolved?
Does that mean you opened a ticket via the panel: https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=support.msg& ??
if so, you might try tweeting the ticket number @DreamHostCare
Tweeting... I don't tweet for text support. I must be missing something, they took my money and then put my account as pending. I have a ticket open. Not sure what I need to do to get this resolved.
What LakeRat is suggesting is that you tweet them your ticket number and a brief outline of the problem. By doing so you will be bringing more urgent attention to your issue which might result with you jumping up the ticket queue (by kicking up a fuss).
