I ran across this site by accident looking for gifts for my grandchildren. I bidded on several items as they offered value to good to be true I was right when I recieved my items they were nothing like the site discribed them to be. This is a band of gypses hiding behind the good outways BAD story. The mark up the shipping rate astronomically. When you recieve your item its nothing like the picture and mind you I bidded on new itmes they are cheap manafactured products you wont buy in stores.

Correction, it's about, not They are not the same site.

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

The person who filed this complaint against has confused it with another site,, and is the company they were intending to complain about, yet they put in the title of their rant. This person was apparently so angry they didn't know what website they were on. It's clear from the ensuing complaint and by the naming of the board of directors, however, that they are referring to as the source of their consumer woes. She was so busy spewing venom that she spat on the wrong company, kinda funny, if you think about it.
