A STERN warning to anyone considering signing up with QUIBIDS! Read this now...
I signed up for QUIBIDS today and I was shocked to see that QUIBIDS IMMEDIATELY charged my credit card for $60.00!
NO warnings about the $60.00 billing and in all that I read BEFORE I entered my credit card I was never given a option to be billed for ANY amount.
Now I understand that that I must buy bid points to participate in Auctions, but "I" and all members should always have the option to select the amount of points WE wish to buy! It's as simple as that.
In truth, I wanted to buy $25.00 to start and everything I read said I would be able to buy my points "later" after I signed up, but $60.00 is a lot of money that I never expected to spend.
*** I sent a message to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a FULL refund and I received a automated response. Tomorrow I will contact my credit card company to see if there is anything they can do to. ***
I think everyone agrees, these kinds of deceptive 'sign-ups' should be against the law! The QUIBIDS sign-up page should CLEARLY include a message right up-front that QUIBIDS intended to bill new members $60.00 and how difficult is that? If I knew of that policy I never would have signed-up, but they didn't bother to do that. In my estimation it is both dishonest and deceptive for anyone to do business like this.
Readers please, KNOW you WILL be billed $60.00 right up front! You have been warned.
I promise to let everyone know how QUIBIDS responds to my complaint. If QUIBIDS fails to refund my money I will escalate my complaints to the State of Oklahoma, the Better Business Bureau, all of Oklahomas' politicians and to every federal agency I can find.
