Does anyone know how to report a non-profit company such as the Goodwill Industries for investigation on their on-line auction ""? I'm convinced that they have shill bidding going on here, driving up the prices. I see a lot of the same user names bidding up the prices to a usual amount, and they never win. The same user id's every time. This website is a scam, and I think it needs to be investigated. All you need to shop here is an email address. Shill bidders can have multiple email accounts and bid up the various items. I'd like to find out if the employees earn a comission on what they list and sell. I know all of the Goodwills are run independently and each has their own policies.

How do you see the user names? Shopgoodwill is set up like ebay and user names are hidden. The letters seen are randomized. If you have ever bought something you can look up the auction after you have won, when you aren't signed in and see that your user name doesn't show.

Just a thought... If you really want to know what the employees wages are, a simple search on the jobs section of the Goodwill location website should tell you. When I searched the Goodwill location for our area, the wage was listed as $9.85hr. , they are hardly getting rich on that.
