I recently found out about Always at Auction, apparently they are an online auction company based in the Dallas area in North Texas. I purchased a watch and an autographed picture from there website. The watch was said to be valued at over $1000 dollars and when I had it looked at by a local watch retailer I was told it wasn't worth anywhere near what I was told. In fact they had never even heard of brand before. After that I did some research of my own, which I wish I had done before hand, but found out that the manufacturers website was also owned by Always at Auction. So I went back and found out that every watch on their website, although different name brands, it was the same case with all of the brands listed. They are Chinese CRAP! And have found that they keep lousy time! What a freaking waste! Don't get conned by these people all they are selling is junk and calling it gold.
Now the picture I purchased. Being originally from New York I was excited to see a picture of Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle up for sale. On this one, I had reservations on this before I purchased it, due to the extremely low price. But I thought well they say it does come with a certificate of authentication so I thought, hey why not then. I like getting a good deal just as much as the next guy. When I got the picture and got a look at the certificate of authenticity I was very ticked off. It looks like they are producing the certs right there in house. It looks like a photo copied piece of junk. No real signature on the cert from whoever authenticated it. No corresponding number to the cert and picture. Just a sticker on the back with God knows who's scribble on the back. A few days later I saw the same picture posted again and then again about a week later. It was about that time I felt for sure I had been ripped off. When I took the picture to a local sports shop, I was told, they couldn't be sure but it was highly likely what I paid for was a fake. Hence the low price I guess! I still paid over $100 bucks for a picture that looks like it was printed off of someone's home computer with a shady photo copied certificate.
I will never do business with these people EVER again and caution anyone from doing business with them either. I have since found out that they have multiple sites that they have auctions on all of which have the same crap on them, oh and I saw the picture I purchased yet again! Their websites you should steer clear of are:
Alwaysatauction.com, Couponcabin.com, Couponshare.com, Loyaltyauctions.com, Keycode.atauction.com
With a company like this that has multiple sites ripping you off, I'm sure they might have more. So beware of these people.
