Complaint Review: Proxibid
Proxibid They allow fraudulent sellers, they only help the auctioneer not the buyer, scam Internet
*Consumer Comment: Proxibid ripped me off too!
Proxibid lets scammers and fraudulent sellers use their site and have no rating or review system. It makes it easy for a person to unknowingly purchase from a scammer. Buyer Beware because they have very unsavory people selling thru them and they do nothing to police it. I bought an item from Auction Depot in Ft Worth Texas and they ripped me off. Sold me a broken item. When I asked for a refund the owner/seller threatened me and then I found out they ripped me off for the shipping charges too. They charged a super high "buyer's premium" whatever that is and I found out they added an extra 30$ to my shipping fee. I would not recommend using Proxibid until they allow the customer a way to review and choose sellers based on ratings. Plus if you tell them about a bad seller they just say "oh well". They make all their money off these auctioneers that pay to be featured on their site...they don't care about the buyers like me getting ripped off.
