Deposited $60.00 for "bids" won several $25.00, 15.00 etc bass pro shops gift cards. I did not go over the daily limit nor time limit as outlined in the terms and conditions (I read them VERY carefully). Three days later get an email from an individual claiming to be from quibids who needs to "verify" my identity and asks for credit cards and my i.d. to "prove who I am" as I had violated the quibids policy.
I told the individual "no" (Paraphrased) actual words word to "go pound sand" and Got to Hell Hacker...
Individual replied back my account had been disabled due to not providing the credentials within a week. A week? it was less than an hour since I got the first email... I went online and informed Quibids someone was claiming to be them and explained the situation, the same name replied from quibids support staff that my account was disabled and all "bids" would be revoked...

Samuel Willoughby, Mar 21 12:58 pm (CDT):Hi, I recieved and email today from an individual claiming to be part of your organization. He was asking for my credit card information to verify my account. I told him, paraphrased, no. He replied my account is disabled for non compliance. I seriously doubt if quibids doesnt ask for username and passwords you wouldn't ask for credit card info to be sent over email traffic.Letting you know your users are being harrassed by individuals asking for CC info.
Samuel Willoughby, Mar 21 11:59 am (CDT):Way to get out of not sending me the cards I won.Please reimburse me for the charges from my credit card since you will not honor the awards and locked my account out. I'll be filing a BBB report.
