This is a portion of my complaint. My apologies to anyone without penny auction experience...

In two short days I have had numerous problems.

-First, an auction concluded immediately after I placed a bid. The bid is in the bid record for the auction. I did not win as a result.

- Second, the autobid feature would not accept my entry, "I was not a cherry memeber", I have never won an auction. And if this is the case why would it accept a manual bid.

- Third, (and last) the bid button was depressed with 2 seconds remaining on the timer but my bid was not accepted. What a surprise, I lost. (See reason 2 for why I could not use the sniper feature as I wanted.)

And here is a reply I sent to one of their form letter response...

Your system would not let me use the sniper feature.
I specifically wanted to use the sniper because this had happened before.
Waiting until the last second is part of the strategy to win. That is why your own feature, the sniper, waits until the last second.
Your systems cannot handle the work load, Synchronization is a cover-up for fraud. There are numerous other sites that do not have this problem, stock brokers (where fractions of a second matter) or any online multiplayer site that somehow manages to synchronize people from other sides of the world through the same internet.

I was using firefox with only the auction open.

Too bad....You lose!

AUTHOR: Inspector - (USA)

I bid all the time in different auction sites.  I totally agree with their email "we highly recommend that you place your bids no later than 4 seconds left on the re-set timer".  You did not do that.

You gambled, you lost, quit your crying.

Penny auctions are a scam

AUTHOR: Christopher - (United States of America)

It's essentially a legal form of gambling. These sites are making huge amounts of cash off people hoping to make a big score for a low price.

Your best bet would be to look for legit sites with low retail prices and give up on the penny auction thing. You will always be chasing your tail.
