Please please read all of these reviews on auction sites before you decide to PLAY or gamble. I'm going to give you a link to an entire host of complaints on these types of sites. read before you spend your money.

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?

Penny auction gift cards...yuck...please people. These auctions are not auctions...they are a way to steal your money and trick you into believing it is a standard auction. These are gambling websites

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 love how these sites are using the phrase "competitive shopping" when what they should be forced to legally say by the FTC is THIS IS AN UNREGULATED GAMBLING SITE>>>GOOD LUCK. competitive shopping...like there is a real competition....NOT!!! There is only the consumers losing

WTF?!!? another swoopo wannabe here to steal your money?? Guys there are not auctions, they are lotto tickets where they website controls the lottery. Stay away. This is a special auction where the auction never ends and everyone pays out except the winner...I call that a LOTTERY SCAM!

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...

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.

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

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.
