    The Penny Auction Watch site is Major scam( Also known as "PAW".

    PAW is a front for these dishonest penny auction owners to make their sites look legit. Penny Auction Owners plant positive experiences on here(Complaints Board) and on the Penny Auction Watch forums(PAW) to bait people into playing and buying bid packs. Buying bid packs to bid on items? What a joke and scam!

    Go to Flippa[dot]com and search "penny auctions for sale"

    There you can see how these operates by the use of controlled bots on autobid to scam any real people into buying more and more bid packs until the reserve price has at least been met for that item that's bid on. They aren't in the business to LOSE money and will never ACTUALLY sell an item below value. If not enough real people are bidding on a particular item for a while, they will end the auction to a bot name. They will then list the bots name in the "Auction History" section to make it look as if REAL people actually win and auction is honest+fair.

    You can buy your own Penny Auction from and start scamming also. So easy to do.

    Also. Google, "penny auction website script" and see how these scams operate. The scripts are cheap to buy.
    To build up traffic to your scam penny auction you must plant positive experiences on forums such as PAW(PAW is a front). You must also dispute ANY negativity or complaints on forums such as this.
    For EX, tell the angry complainer that he must be crazy, use stupid bidding techniques and unlucky because you win all the time and just won a 52inch Plasma for 2 bucks. People WILL start believing you if you plant enough fake postitive experiences/reviews. JUST make sure to use different names each time you fake post. If you use same name over and over again telling everyone you win all the time, people will begin to catch on and realize it's just a fake post planted by the Penny Site operator/owner.

    Anyone can do this... so easy to make money. MAKE sure that the server that hosts your scam auction is located outside of the USA so you can get around federal gambling regulated laws. If heat gets to much, then shut scam auction down and create a new one. Repeat process.

    Happy scammin'!!

    I tried to post that on PAW(pennyauctionwatch[.]com) to warn good honest people BUT they wouldn't allow it to post.. I wonder why? ;)

    So i'll just post away on websites such as this.

    You use to could post on PAW right away but now they have a Moderator that must approve your post first.. I wonder why that is? ;)

    I think we ALL know why that is :)

    United States

    Here is an interesting story, I purchsed 50 bids and they gave me an extra 5 so I had 55 bids loaded in my bid bot that bids the last two seconds every time without fail, I had three bids left when somebody else won the auction. If you understand bots you know this is not possible and my bot showed me as the last bidder as well. WOW avoid this site!!! This is solid proof they cheat big time. All they had to do is just let my bids run out, so they are stupid as well..

    I think these penny auction sites are most likely scams. Matter of fact, the could have their own bots working to bid a product up and the best outcome would be for their bot to win. They don't have to send the item out and can sell it again and they have all the money for the paid for legit bids already. I suspect the same ipad has been sold a hundred times on some of these sites. It's crazy to trust them.

    United States

    This site is a complete scam, watching for hours same 3 bidders bidding on each auction. none of them bid on any other auctions. 3 bids bidding a penny every 5 seconds exactly for sixty some dollars now, thats a lot of bids that the 3 same bidders are bidding for oh 8 hours now. why would they waste 1000's of bids each? because they are bots. And no they don't answer the phone.
