Fantastic Bid seems to the eye a pretty harmless sight to get easy product at a decent price. They have you buy "bids" to bid on a Item each bid costs 1.00USD. Once Items are under the 20 second mark each bid raises the time back to 20 seconds. Each bid raises the price of the object 1 cent.

This website has horrible latency. Its filled with counter stalls, page failures and server ping time outs. When your dealing with a live bidding sight and they cant even keep their server running properly thats one thing. But to not refund YOUR consumers money when your servers had a "Hiccup" and now everyone is out 200 bucks on a auctions now keep open for 2 hours, making you over 2,000 USD

For a company to do this is horrible! Do not spend any money on Fantastic Bid .com You will only loose your money or have it stolen from you! Tech ignorance or savy thievery I think the latter. They are not registered with the BBB. I cant find anything about them but a webpage.
Their webmaster refuses to respond. STAY AWAY FROM FANTASTIC BID . COM

FantasticBid Auction Solicitation...


I wanted to contribute to this report as a neutral witness more or less, but a bit annoyed.  My story is this:
I received an email directed to my spam account today from some guy named Chris J.
The subject line read, "Chris is disturbing you...".  That was the 1st red flag.  Minor, but significant; he could have said, "A moment of your time, if you will".  (More improved marketing!)
b) Here's the words "Chris" wrote:
   Hey...Where are you? this is chris...i want to tell you
    abt one website i've seen a few days ago and i won some nice products on it..
   "this is it, click here so u can access it."<---(phrase linked to the website)
    tell me what u think abt it...chris

    Now I've never met this guy, don't know him from Adam, but he types like we're old
    buddies.  Plus, his email has an aol extension.  How many people still use aol today?
    Not many.

c) Last thing:  I tried to respond to his email but got back that
MAILER-DAEMON@yahoo.com response, with a failure notice in the subject line.  Bogus email?  I don't know, but if the email is suspicious, than my guess is the fantasticbids.com is too.

Bidder Beware.
