When first visiting the Zbiddy website it said I had to register prior to viewing all the items or placing bids on them.  Then I come to find that you also have to pay to actually "bid" on most all the items.  That's ok, I purchased a modest bid package and thought I might have some luck.  I first find out that they have a auto-bid setting that allows people to just keep bidding on the same item at a certain time should someone have trumped their bid.  I find there is truly no way to get enough bids to compete with these auto-bid customers(which are probably bots used to keep people having to bid over and over on items) while still getting a "deal" by going through their site.

The straw that broke the camels back however was when I received what I thought was a legitimate email from the website.  After entering in my personal information they requested to receive the free prize for being a Zbiddy customer, i was told that I would qualify for the prize after I completed any 2 offers below.  I completed 2 of the offers and then was lead through a maze of surveys and questionnaires that ended up being endless and all together fruitless.  As a paying customer of this website I wouldn't imagine that they would send run-of-the mill spam emails to their consumers promising them things that are truly unattainable for the sake of selling information.  I would not recommend doing business with this organization as they are proving to be worst scam artists than some of the sellers on e-bay and are truly remorseless about the frustration their customers feel when facing such things from a paid site where they think their patronage is respected and valued.

I was highly skeptical about this "penny-auction" site and found that it was indeed to good to be true.  I would not waste my money on bidding on any of the items as they do have this auto-bid feature which can be easily manipulated by the company to ensure their customers aren't getting these items below a certain price and they are forced to continue bidding over and over for nothing and still having to pay for each individual bid
