Fraud!! "Unknown Bidder??????

Post by MilfordsMrFixIt » 2 months ago

This auction started with a $1 bid from "Unknown Bidder" and it outbid every single bidder including itself all the way up to $349!! At that point the 'real' bidder won the auction at $350.
Mind you; this was for a ring that was selling for $279! WT**** is going on with that?!?!

I call FRAUD!! (Maybe someone will be able to explain what happened here.)

That's exactly the reason why I gave up on the auctions early on here. The good items I was interested in were selling for more than the web price. No way am I paying more!

That’s just some ignorant fool making up what they think is a cute name for the auctions! And they obviously didn’t bother to do their homework because they wayyyyyy overbid! Best to just ignore those fools and hope they cease and desist quickly!!! Soooo very frustrating to deal with them though! I see it all the time now on the auctions. It used to be fun...now it’s just plain frustration! 😫 Not to mention delays in shipping auction items! I still have orders from the 10th not shipped! Not a happy camper myself right now!

The real issue there is that there is a fraud. If the person wants to be called that, fine, but to bid against yourself to a ridiculous level? That left the 'real' bidders paying WAY too much!

Are you kidding this hole website is a joke!! It's run by a bunch of crooks!
They have retail prices bloated about 5 - 10 times what they should be and if you do a search on their own stupid site you will find the same thing listed at a retail of $1200.00 sells somewhere else on their site with a retail at 49.99. Just check out the current jade jewelry selling and search the site. You will find every one 10 times cheaper on a different page.
The higher they price something the more people bid on it??
Why charge Canada $7.99 per item when every one else can get as much as they want for $29.99??? Makes no sense??

It's just a big rip off! When you get your jewelry take it to a real Jeweler and have it looked over.

To bad I can't post pictures on here I could show you exactly what I mean.

Right now someone is bidding on this ring and the estimated retail value is $1100.00 - bids are now at 104 and still going.

but if you go here it shows the retail value of $129.00 and you can buy it over 3 payments!!!

Actually, it's out of stock, so you can't buy it outside the auctions, and had been sold in the live TV auction for $59.
At least in the afore mentioned auction, you can see that one bidder put in a max bid of $50, and a couple people bid against it, then, another one did the same up to $100
The Auction has closed at $101, as Maria outbid that $100 MaxBid by a dollar.
Now, I wouldn't have paid that much, but that price isn't completely unreasonable.
(sometimes a bidder REALLY wants the item, and will pay a little more.
{Happened to me recently, needed 4 of an item for an order, won 3 at (for example) $10, there was only one more left that I could find. (haven't seen any since either!) So that last one cost me $31. I finished the order, and made a bunch of $... That's not 100's of dollars that a bidder was forced to pay as in this case, but... .}
