I have not been able to get anyone to answer the phone. I have called several times, late evening as well as first thing in the morning. I get a recorded message that states they are experiencing high call volumes and the wait time is between 20 to 30 minutes. Really! I know they do not open until 11:00 am, I call at exactly 11:00. I am a very patient person, so I wait. I was on hold 1 1/2 hours the first time, 45 minutes the 2nd then was disconnected. I called again, over a hour on hold, etc. I haven't received any products or my money back. I have been waiting for my items for 5 weeks so for.
If anyone have another phone number other than 1-877423-3943, please let me know.
If it was anything less than one star I would have taken it.
Seen add on tv thought I would check it out. When they asked for my card information I thought it was so if I won something. But no right off the bat they charged me $70. Then I won a set of cast-iron skillets for .06¢. I went to the store and ordered a water jug. That has been 3mos. Still waiting!!; Have received nothing.
I bought an iPad because it was a pretty good deal. I even made my friend to open an account and buy some bids. I received an extra "$20 cash back." They never delivered the iPad an in order to have my money back I had to claim to the bank. They never respond and I never received the cash back neither used because they close my account. Glad they seem to be out of business
to anyone reading this - more than likely you have been scammed and hurt by Beezid. There is information being shared that Beezid has been defrauding their customers for a very long time. The good news the site is on "stand by" and they can not hurt anyone else. The bad news is the victim count is very high and the damages in the thousands of dollars. There is information on a forum that a couple of hundred of customers are participating in. It is called Pennyauctionsforum.com. This is a place to go to learn about others experiences, the type of fraud perpetrated and how to get your money back through chargeback. Also, there may be a class action law suit and a place to register your information in the event that occurs so you may participate. I hope to see you there.
I tried contacting the BBB which took 4 tries, they kept closing the complaint saying I didn't list a company I was complaining about. My responses to them got madder and madder and didn't get a real response until I made a statement that they were acting like Beezid or protecting them. At that point they responded saying they couldn't do anything because Beezid is in Canada and they have no authority there. They gave me 2 websites in Canada to try

The first one responded and said they didn't handle complaints they said try here http://www.opc.gouv.qc.ca/en/contact/addresses/
I contacted all 3 by email but only got the one response. Maybe someone else could give it a shot an see what happens. I don't call long distance and email leaves a footprint.
Tip for consumers: Don't use their store. I had a previous post about how they ripped me of by selling me a flipped item they didn't even have.Ask Mary about Beezid
I among the high number of you that are not receiving orders. I have spent thousands on this site, dumb ass that I am. Did receive things slowly, but did receive them. Now, nothing. And they seem to be shut down....Wth. I did receive an email from one of the ladies that I would talk to when buying bids, saying she was leaving the company. That is when orders stopped. Is it convenient they are out of the U.S.? Did anyone else get charges on their credit cards for each "foreign" transaction? I have not been getting their annoying buy bid calls either. And why we're so many higher dollar "wins" always the same few names??? Something is awfully Damn fishy here folks!
I have been waiting since July to receive a couple of items. I rec'd a few of things the things I've won, but all of a sudden my orders stopped coming. I've called several times only to be told they would be forthcoming and they changed vendors. The most recent I wanted to close my account so I bought a fire pit. Used the balance in my wallet and paid the difference. It has been in "order status" since July and now I can't get a hold of anyone. I want my $$ back and if there's a class action suit, I WANT IN........ I've spent way too much of my time, trying to get resolution and it's a joke.
I also won items on beezid in July and still haven't received anything but the small items. I keep calling them and they keep saying your items are coming . They lie to you and say you can get 3 or 4 times your money back in prizes..it's just a scam
I want my money back. If there is going to be a law suit I'm in.
See Michael's 9/30 review and request for Beezid VENDORS to join him in a possible suit to force Beezid to make good with what is owed its Suppliers. I as a member think ALL members should ask to join in. members orders not received - return cash in Wallets, value of won items in their Store, etc.
I have won itams back in first week of July and still nothing yet every time I talk to someone they tell me that their are changing suppliers and they will see why I have not yet received the itams yet I am still waiting on computer,pot&pan,zpad,folding table,and even more I have over 140. Dollars in wallet they said I would start receiving itams quickly last Friday went on site today to see if anything has shipped and see it looks like they are no longer working. Hope they make good on what is already owed
I asked What is going on with the site and why is everything on standby? Beezid response: Thank you for your comments.
Beezid auctions are currently paused as we are undergoing site maintenance. Transactions site-wide have also been paused as this unscheduled maintenance affects many aspects of our processes.
Please be patient as we continue to work on these issues. We expect to have some type of resolution as soon as we can.
If you win anything you'll be lucky to get it and if you do it'll take up to 3 months and that's if you write them and complain constantly for weeks on end. I've got one more item i've been waiting on for over 2 months and can't get them to respond to any of my requests. To make it worse I've seen them auctioning off the same item and them the winner flipped it and put up for sale in their store. They've done this several times now since i won and paid for my item.
That is why I'm filing a complaint with the better business bureau.
Tip for consumers: Don't use this site. avoid it at all costs.Ask timothy about Beezid
Beezid right now not shipping the orders except for the very cheap wins. The bidders are complaining on pennyauctionsforum.com that Beezid has closed up the wallet area of the site to not allow bidders won money to be transferred, They recently identified a bidder who is an employee and that employee is running up the auctions very high. There is excessive collusion and cheating on the site and you will read about it on the blog. Beezid does not do anything about the cheating because the cheaters have money and Beezid is in financial distress. A lot of the bidders who bid on Beezid right now are saying on the forum I mentioned that they think Beezid is going to go bankrupt. DO NOT GO ON THEIR SITE You will only be giving the your money and even if you win which is unlikely they will only ship the items that are valued at under $20.00 Please don't go there.
Tip for consumers: the person who wrote cautiously optimistic is actually Beezid - there is no way any newbie won all of those items. see on the site where it says cherry status for new bidders only- well i can prove that they sell power bidders back into cherry status to bid against newbies file chargeback!!!!Ask Peter about Beezid
I won a few gift cards and have been waiting 3 months for my items. I called their several times and just get the runaround. Now no one will even get back to me. I think it is a shame that they keep taking your money and don't ship your winnings. I use other sites and don't have this problem.
I love penny auction sites but not this one. I have 6 items owed to me from May and they gave me the run around for months. I finally spoke to someone who said they were having problems and way behind in shipping.
I spoke with many other users and everyone is having the same problem. Why in heck do they continue to take peoples money knowingly that they cannot ship the product, I think this is intentional fraud and we should hold the owners personally responsible. Also, they are no longer advertising on google...hmmm
If you are also having this issue I suggest you write a review so more people don't get hurt. We will be in contact on the forums to discuss a class action suit. I understand sometimes companies fall behind but 4 months is a long time and I am very angry that they continue to run auctions, take peoples money when they cant ship the product. They must be stopped!
