Swipe Auctions / Stole my money

Phone: 253 384 1920

While on facebook, I saw a Google advert for Swipe Auction. I decided to take a look. Interested, to find out more I had to register. I looked at form and at no time saw anything about charges. Like ebay, before you can bid, you have to open an account. Again I checked and no charges. After submit. "Congratulations! I just gave them $159. Disgusted, I looked to complain. I found the one-to-one chat and eventually a two way typing conversation took place. I was told that I should have read the disclaimer before clicking submit. I wrote that I did. Shortly a form appeared on the screan clearly showing "If you press submit, you will be charged $159. I wrote back that that was not the same form...end of discussion.
I then tried to re-register and carefully checked everything. I used a made up name and bank details and got to submit. Then I stopped and checked. Still no mention of the $159 .
This was a brand new bank account I had opened with $100 to work on ebay. I rushed down to my bank and found I was overdrawn and in trouble. It was only because I brought the proof with me that I was able to get away without a fine.
I was able to downlaod a return form for my money. On the refund form it clearly states that you will not get a refund unless they can be sure it is you. They want a photocopy of any goverment issued ID that matches the attached information. They say this is required by their bank to prevent fraud. (what a joke).
This outfit will start up again when you you stop this one. If the B*****ds were in JAIL. maybe not. They are going to hurt a lot of families worldwide. With Christmas on the way and a recession to deal with I think the Canadian and USA government should step in and deal with these animals.

    Well now, for a start I want my money back. Make it clear on the form that you fill that you will recieve 300 bidding credits after having $159 deducted from your account. by just taking it, many young mums and dads may not have that or it is in the account to pay for a home bill. By you taking it thay are out several ways. Overdraught at the bank etc. If your producys and deals are so good and better than ebay you do not have to cheat. Looking at the list of companies that you have that have been under investigation does not give us confidence. When I get scammed out of my families money, I have to answer to them. To them them I am an idiot for giving you my banking details. I went down to my bank and put $159 in ten mins. They also advised me to cut up my card as you have indicated that you will be able to withdraw funds. Your refund form is wrong. It says if you fail to give exact details you will not get a refund. It asks for your order no on the email you sent. You DO NOT put an order no on it. Now you must know what your up to and pretty soon you'll be starting another co to replace this one. You claim 1 million reg on this site. At $159 each...wow! that's before you have any buyers. come on!!.
    I will send you the refund form. Is it a real address in Aurora?. I will not have the same bank no as my card was cut. I am not going to give you my private Government Issued details as they are my Green Card, Social Security Number and Passport.

    8. SCOPE OF SERVICES

    (a) SwipeAuctions Marketplace

    SwipeAuctions operates an online marketplace (the 'Marketplace') that enables registered users to view, bid on, and purchase products (' Products'). Each product auctioned through the Marketplace is auctioned for an indefinite period of time based on the total number of Bids (as defined in Section 7(b)) received by that Product.

    (b) Bids

    Before You can bid on a Product, You must purchase a membership for $159.00 USD which comes with 300 bids (' Additional'). Bids may be purchased in packs of 135, 300, 1325 and 3000 (' Bid Packs') for the then current price listed on the Website. Payment can be made by Visa only. BID PACKS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. Once a bid is used, it is deducted from Your account and cannot be used again. SwipeAuctions reserves the right, in SwipeAuctions - sole discretion, to change the Bid Packs fees and charges in effect, or to add new fees and charges, by posting such changes on the website or providing notice to You. In addition, you do not hold SwipeAuctions - responsible for any overdraft charges or fees which you might incur during the ongoing Membership.

    (c) Auction Structure

    Each time a registered user places a Bid on a Product, extra time (typically a few seconds) is added to that Product's auction period (' Auction Period'), and the bidding price of the Product is increased by $0.01. An auction ends when the Auction Period reaches zero. The auction winner (the ' Winner') is the last user to place a Bid, as determined solely by SwipeAuctions - records. UPON END OF AN AUCTION, ALL BIDS USED ON THAT AUCTION, WHETHER BY THE WINNER OR NON-WINNER(S), WILL EXPIRE AND WILL NOT BE CREDITED OR REFUNDED TO THE RESPECTIVE BIDDERS. Winners are required to pay the final bidding price plus any applicable shipping and handling charges (together, the ' Total Price').

    (d) Bidding Terms; Shill Bidding

    By placing a Bid on a Product, You are making a legally binding offer to purchase that Product. ONCE A BID IS USED, IT CANNOT BE CANCELLED OR REFUNDED. In the event that You are a Winner, You hereby agree to complete the transaction and purchase the Product for the Total Price. Failure to complete the transaction and purchase the Product for the Total Price shall constitute breach of this Agreement, render You liable for all damages arising therefrom, and may result in the immediate termination of Your account.

    YOU ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED FROM PLACING BIDS, OR CAUSING BIDS TO BE PLACED, ON ANY PRODUCT FOR THE PURPOSE OF ARTIFICIALLY INCREASING BIDDING PRICES, MANIPULATING THE BIDDING PROCESS, OR INFLUENCING USER BEHAVIOR.

    (e) Purchase; Payment

    In the event that You are a Winner, You will be notified by confirmation page, email or other mechanism that You have won the auction, and You will be instructed to complete the transaction and purchase the Product for the Total Price. You must remit payment within thirty (30) days of auction end. FAILURE TO REMIT PAYMENT WITHIN THE 30 DAY TIME PERIOD WILL FORFEIT YOUR RIGHT TO PURCHASE THE PRODUCT, AND ALL BIDS USED TO WIN THE PRODUCT SHALL EXPIRE AND BE NON-REFUNDABLE. All payments must be made in U.S. currency. SwipeAuctions accepts credit card payment via Visa card only.

    (f) AutoBidder

    AutoBidder automatically places Bids on Your behalf up to the maximum Bid amount set by You (the ' Maximum Bid'). Your use of autoBidder constitutes a legally binding offer by You to purchase the applicable Product up to the Maximum Bid. BIDS PLACED BY AUTOBIDDER MAY NOT BE CANCELLED AND ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. YOU ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED FROM USING ANY UNAUTHORIZED BIDDING SOFTWARE OR OTHER AUTOMATED BIDDING MECHANISM.

    (g) Shipping

    Unless otherwise stated, Products will be shipped within 72 hours of receipt by SwipeAuctions of the Total Price. Delivery will be made by our suppliers or, in limited circumstances, directly from us to the mailing address provided by You. YOU BEAR THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF ENSURING THAT YOUR ADDRESS ON FILE WITH SwipeAuctions IS ACCURATE AND CURRENT.

You also hereby release SwipeAuctions.com and such other parties from any obligation to make any payment hereunder or from any other liability incurred with the use of any such text or other material in the manner provide above.

When you complete Level 20, you are granted the then current "prize" at no additional cost other than applicable shipping, delivery, and administrative costs. Only one Rewards Challenge can ever be won in the lifetime of each account.

    (h) REMEDIES IN AID OF ARBITRATION; EQUITABLE RELIEF

    This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between SwipeAuctions and You concerning Your use of the Website and Services.

If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties'' original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof.

    Just thought I would let all the people that Willms and his team have scammed and that includes jennifer, also Jesse I am not against people who are GAY. I have a gay nephew and he is great.
    I bought the domain name www.the jessewillmsstory.com I have it for sale at $30, 000.
    I am sure after Jesse goes to Jail of someone pays him back that some young film maker from Hollywood will want to feature the biggest internet thief of all time. Jesse Willms.
    I still want my $159 back. I will continue with this till I get it.
