The same person (Marat Nigmatzyanov ) also owns all of these websites - mostly they are promoting various scams:

It seems that this website may possibly either be a copy/clone of Swipebids / Swipeauctions or run by them? See links in comment for more info.

In addition there are a number of red flags which suggest you should avoid providing your credit card details to whoever owns this website. I say whoever for the following reasons:

When using their 24/7 live chat facility I enquired as to where they were based - they replied as follows: "For security and privacy reasons, we are unable to disclose our exact address, but I will confirm for you that we are based in Nevada". USA. They refused to provide an address or any other information on who owns and runs the company. Now why would any honest, legitimate company do this?

They do provide an address on their website as follows:
True Net Media - Suite 250, 1055 E Tropicana Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89119

However a search of whois contradicts this and says the website is owned by:
Goerge Frankos
6234 East Main Street
Lexington
KY
40507

To add to the confusion, there are reports of their address being in England at:
72 High Street, Haslemere, GU27 2LA

However an exact copy of selloffauctions site can be found at globaldegreeonline.com which is located on the same server as selloffauctions.com and yet is owned by:
Vipul Gupta, 9Global, Inc.
170A University Avenue #7
Palo Alto, California 94301
United States

Another red flag : There is also a counter on selloffauctions.com which purports to display the total numbers of winners so far. The figures displayed and the rate at which they increase however do not appear to bare any resemblance to the number of auctions on the sell off auctions site!

Click on comment for links and further information on selloff auctions.

The website best-teeth-whitening-guide.com claims that:

" We are an independent consumer resource designed to help you compare the many teeth whitening aids available to consumers and learn about teeth bleaching aids that are actually worth your money.

Combining customer reviews and in-depth expert analysis, our mission is to provide the most complete and up-to-date information on the most popular teeth whiteners and to help educate each of our visitors with information that will help them make smart buying decisions. You can be assured that with every review, we cut through the marketing hype to help you find the best teeth whiteners at the best prices. "

This is complete hogwash. If you look up the owner of best-teeth-whitening-guide.com you will see that it is owned by:

Bridal Beauty White
Yale Wang
271 W. 47th St
New York, New York 10036
United States
Phone: *******323

Now guess what best-teeth-whitening-guide.com have as their "top recommendation" in fact their only recommendation - Bridal Beauty White!

Like I said "independent consumer resource" = hogwash!

I am sure the FTC would be interested in this fraudulent and deceptive advertising by bridal beauty white teeth whitener!

Swipe Auctions (swipeauctions.com) - new name - same old SCAM - check out the Swipebids complaints and bad reviews on Sitejabber and on many other websites - well Swipe Auctions (swipeauctions.com) is just a new name for the same old Swipebids scam.

Swipe Auctions is the name, but swiping your money is their game.

So you better beware, you better watch out, there be a scam about and Swipe Auctions is the name.
