No matter what you win on this site, you first pay $100.00 just to bid. The clock reset's every time someone bids in the last 10 seconds so you can go through your bids extremely fast. Even when the clock goes to Zero, the clock sometimes reset's and sometimes when the clock is still at 4 or 5 seconds, the bidding closes. I "won" bids on 2 items worth about $0.10 and just to see if they would actually follow through, I paid for them. I won the bids for $0.04 and $0.03. Then they added on nearly $7.00 shipping and handling for each of them. After a month when I didnt receive my "prizes" I had to harrass them and they finally ensured the products were on there way. When they arrived, they came in the same package even though I paid separate shipping and handling from some place overseas I have never even heard of. I contacted them about it but dit not recieve credit for the over billing. Also, you can never speak to someone in charge. You always get someone just "handling" complaints but they apparently work at home. Some how, they got hired and they get a pay check and even they dont know who exactly they work for - or that is what they are trained to say/do. This website reaks SCAM! I cant believe cable companies allow them to advertise on TV. Someone NEEDS to look into this company seriously.

Additionally

AUTHOR: Ramjet - (U.S.A.)

If you check out the PDF file recommended in Quibids absurd reply, you will find some serious exceptions to the reported controls.  Particularly check out paragraph 3.  If this is the best they can do, it should tell you something. Plus, they are still trying to call what they do an auction.

#2 Consumer Comment

That's correct

AUTHOR: Ramjet - (U.S.A.)

Quibids and other sites like this are absolute scum and they know it.

As far as they are concerned it is an absolutely brilliant scam.  They make HUGE amounts of profit on EVERY transaction, they simply cannot lose.

They try to pretend they are an auction but when was the last time you went to an auction and had to pay for every bid and they keep your money whether you win OR lose.  Then they try to tell you that you can't lose because you can buy the product.  Yeah, sure you can, the price is astronomical and they are not even authorized dealers so you won't even have a warranty if you are "buying" some kind of tech device.

It's really hard to imagine anyone falling for their obscene business model but I guess if people will fall for psychics they'll fall for anything.

Then the company has the arrogant audacity to come here and pretend they are ethical.  They should be ashamed of themselves, but of course they are not.

Don't fall for it, please!

It is all well and good that they are proud of a BBB A- rating...

AUTHOR: Ronny g - (USA)

But the BBB should be rated F- for not giving these scumbags an F- rating..

I would not have any problem with this site if the ONLY terms and conditions were written more like this...


WARNING: This is a GAMBLING website. IF you GAMBLE here you  WILL LOSE since that is how the GAMBLING business model works. IF the odds were in favor of the gambler, the gambling website/business could NOT survive.

But the BBB or quibids for some reason will not state the truth this clearly so people will continue to get suckered in. 

Anyone...log onto quibids.com and report back how they inform everyone how this is risk or if you feel they are just luring in suckers that probably have no idea they are simply joining a GAMBLING/ entertainment website.
