    Recently seen a news item on some penny auctions and it was more to buyer beware when it comes to being charged for bids and still having to pay each bid made even if one does not get the product, is this to be true on your website as well or is this how they make their money?
    • Being prepared is to prepare, this is our responsibility.
    • I am not your Mommy or Daddy and do not sugar coat it but I will tell you simply as how I see it, it is up to you on how you will or will not use it.
    • IANAL, all information I present is for your review, do your own homework.

    I was curious about the same thing. That is why I was tryin to get the link to check it out. On a lot of the sites it costs a dollar per bid and there are a lot of fraud reports.

    This is typically how penny auction sites make their money.

    It does look like you have to buy bids. So it it is more like a lottery than an auction. Right?

    $25 bids for $13.50. You typically have to place a lot of bids to win so by the time you do win you have spent $40.00 on a $20.00 item.

    I will just say I have no first hand experience with this site. The above is how the typical penny auction site works.

    I saw on the news, that penny auctions were a rip off. but kudos to you if you can get enough ignoramasses, and retards to waste their money on your site. I would love to be able to work at home and make money or travel and make money.
