Property room is an auction site that makes you think that its run by the police dept.  Which its not.  The things that are up for auction are 90% new. Even tho they tell you that the pic's might be bigger then the artical being sold,  it brings you in.

    Its very deceptive. I bid on what they called a 1 gram silver Bar, I had never done this before and thought because it was part of the police property room I wouldn't get ripped off.  Well I recieved the bar today.

   It was so tiny I had to use a magnifyer to see it.  The cost of this bar is around 60 cent's,  I paid $7 and the shipping was $7.95 total cost $14.95  for something worth 60 cent's 

    Many other people were bidding on this same piece and it makes you think its better then it is!

I believe that they use staff to increase the bids and make you thing others are bidding against you. This is the first time in my life that I have been scamed and I don't like it !!!

Oh come on!

AUTHOR: Flynrider - (USA)

  What is it about the site that makes you "feel" that it is run by some nameless police department?  It certainly looks like a commercial site to me.   They definitely don't claim to be affiliated with any police dept.    If this was really a concern, all you had to do was click on the "Company Info" link on the homepage.

 " Even tho they tell you that the pic's might be bigger then the artical being sold,  it brings you in.   Its very deceptive. "

  What are you saying?  They told you the pics show larger than actual size.  That's not a ripoff.  It's called being honest.  If you refuse to believe them, that would seem to be your problem.

"  It was so tiny I had to use a magnifyer to see it.  "

   I think I see what the problem is.   You bid on something you knew nothing about and now you have buyers remorse.   Here's a clue for you.   There are 454 grams to a pound.  How big do you think a 1 gram bar is supposed to be?  By comparison an old silver dime (pre '65) contains a full 2 grams of silver.

" This is the first time in my life that I have been scamed and I don't like it !!!  "

  Nothing in your report indicates that you were scammed.   You even claim that they disclosed everything that you have complained about.   Your lack of knowledge about what you were bidding on is nobody's problem but yours.
