Seems really convoluted to me.
Near as I can tell, ya can get a penny fer a buck. So every time ya bid, yer betting a buck.
Are people really that stoopid?
Then they got this automated bidding system. Supposedly, ya can bet while yer away. So, if 100 bidders all have this 'option', and they all wait till the last few seconds to bid; the 'option' can rack up thousands of bids in a matter of seconds?
And the site reserves the right to pick the winner?
Then of course, no other 'optional' bidding software is allowed?
Stinks like scam to me.
Also, get this - YOU CAN BID YOURSELF UP !! WTH IS THAT???? SCAM, that's what that is!! I used my free bids just to see and sure as stink, you can UP bid yourself !!! They also didn't mention anything in the "rules" about the 30 sec re-occuring timer once a bid is placed. They may have since added that in, but it was not in the disclosures previously. The timer is bs along with the entire penny auction network of scammers.
