    United States of America Used a bidding bot to increase bids on an item I was bidding on. Internet

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Like many other curious people I went to the site to see if what they were offering was genuine.  I purchased $30 in bids and then picked an auction to buy more bids.  There was absolutely no activity on the item until I entered my first bid. Wouldn't you know....all of a sudden there was a flurry of activity and the bids went up. Curious, I entered another bid after watching the auction sit for a few more moments. I placed another bid and then, wham...more bids flew in.  The names of the bidders seemed kind of lame too.  I checked other similar auctions and surprise surprise, the very same "bidders" were on there too.  So, I selected a few more random auctions and they were on those as well. I've been doing auction bidding for a long time and I could tell this was a shoddy set up, especially after participating and watching.  DON'T waste your money...these are all sucker bets...
