SCAM alert. Chinese gold farmers who don't really exist will steal your money and never really deliver your gold. If you want real gold stick with guy4game or ige or one of the more well known sites that is run by a company not some guy out of a box in china. world of warcraft gold at these low rates is never real.

Auction sites like these needs to be shut down asap and are a virus spreading throughout the internet

Penny auctions are more like lotteries and slot machines than an auction. You won't really win anythere here more than you would if you went to a casino. read about them from time magazine

Now with football season approaching I bet these scam jersey sites are getting all of our hard earned US dollars. OEM jerseys? cmon guys...it seems like you have an OEM fake software site and now you have moved on to OEM fake jerserys for NBA and NFL. Free shipping internationally? you expect people to believe they will wire you money and you will ship them for free an official NFL jersey from China? Stay clear of this site.

FAKE site....stay clear of this scammy wow gold site where you will never get your gold and they will run away with your money. Not to mention that there is nothing you can do about it because it is illegal to buy gold anyways.

This is getting to the point of being ridiculous. These penny auction sites are designed to be a gambling site and to make money off people just like casinos. Even worse, venture capitalists are getting in on this game and investing big money into these sites. Makes sense I suppose, all of vegas is one big company now. I think the bad part is that these websites are just not regulated. At least the nevada gaming is regulated by government.

Nickelbids is an auction site that is really a slot machine where you do not know the odds of winning. You give them money, you get nothing, and they laugh all the way to the bank. Why would anyone want to do this? Go buy a lottery ticket. The items they have for sale, someone probably wins...but they have all of the control as it is NOT REGULATED BY THE GOVERNMENT. go do yourself a favor, google penny auction and see how many people believe this is illegal gambling that just has not caught the attention of the FTC.

I love how this site says "If you're the last bidder when the clock hits zero, you win!" What they should be forced to say by the FTC is "when the clock hits zero we will just add more time to the clock as another bidder entered the auction...so the auction truly never ends and the timer is nothing but a farce--good luck gambling!"

I wish the FTC would step in and say..enough is enough...this is a form of a lottery or gambling and not a true auction and therefore needs to be regulated. Basically would you buy a lottery ticket from an unknown website that is not regulated?

These sites never cease to amaze me in how they convince people they are just participating in a regular auction. If you spend you money and only have a slim chance of winning..that is a lottery. An unregulated lottery. Read about how everyone lost their money here

Nice penny auction scam site with a big corvette on the homepage. Yup that should lure in the people who want to buy a lotto ticket for a vette. Except guess what guys, unlike state lotteries which are regulated by the government, you get to buy a lotto ticket regulated by some dude behind a computer....just hope he doesn't decide that his buddy should win and not you...

WHAT a SCAM! how is it an auction when the timer counts down to zero and then goes back up over and over again??? I paid $150 for a TV and then ran out of money to keep bidding on it and then some dude comes in and wins it out of the blue?? How do I not know that isn't a swoopo friend? Auction my A$$. Call it what it really is...swoopo stealing your money.

20 bucks for an "authentic" NBA jersey? These things retail for $180 usually and I know first hand the actual wholesale cost of an NBA jersey is typically over $60 so I'n not too sure how these can really be authentic. Maybe really good copies for only twenty bucks and in the end I guess it doesn't matter. You won't probably get that hologram symbol on the tag, but if you are just going to have people think you bought the real thing then I suppose knock yourself out and support these fraudsters.

OMFG!!! another swoopo scam and rip off. This is not an auction. auctionstorm is a way for the site to sell you a lotto ticket and the more money you spend the more likely you are going to win. But that is it...a gambling site. Just know what you are buying. You are probably just as likely to win playing a scratch off at 7-11

Travel and penny auction scam all rolled up into one website. It seemed like someone thought.."what else besides ipads can we sell to unsuspecting consumer in a penny auction...how about a vacation" and now we have offandaway. Yet another penny auction / gambling site.
