I fileed out the information form and immediately I saw I had purchased $159.00 in bids. I never authorized this in fact I did purchase $45.00 not realizing what was going on. My husband said it was a scam, but what do I do now? Donna Giesie

ZBiddy told me I had won an ipad which at the time of my bit it was $.49. This was over a month ago. I have never received the ipad but I did receive an unauthorized $159 charge on my credit card. I too believe ZBiddy is a scam and should not be allowed internet access. Too, I cannot get in on ZBiddy either thru sign in or registrering. geno915@comcast.net

I also joined their web site and was led to under stand I would start with 25 free bids and then could purchase more if i so so desired. Then I discovered that my credit card had been charged 60.00. How can I get this money back I've told them I no longer wish to belong to their site. Please help.

Alarmed and unhappy.

Sorry Zbiddy, your a liar! I have joined a few penny auctions and researched the rest. Your the first one to pretend to offer 25 free bids then try to trick us into paying a $60 start up fee when I tried to exit the site, with a spam block "are you sure you want to leave I'm autherized to give you 25 free LOL. You pimps! Look if you don't get free bids to try it out it's likely a scam! Bottom line, these sites make plenty of money to even give away a few ipads ect... let alone a few free bids' People, do your research first look for complaints like these, also check BBB for any business your going to try. You want to try a real auction site goto Beezids.com they are honest. well, atleast so far. When I joined I was givin 10 free bids and won a 50 bid pack then with that I won a "great white life jacket $60-$80 on amazon . I won it with 1 bid and no one eles bid so I won it for a penny and paid 6.99 shipping plus 1cent total $7.00 It took about 2 weeks to get it but I did get it. Since then I've won a 2.43 wii bundle, 9 cent underwater camera, 1.45 fishing pole, 14 cent two way radios, 9 centlantern solor powered, 500bid pack for $22.00 retail $300 and some gift cards. Plus shipping- I did however spend 315.00 total so I'm just a little ahead but still ahead. I just wasted a lot of bids trying to win everything. The best thing to do is watch for a while and get use to the patterns, I'm doing much better now.
I will give free bids 10-25bids on top of the 10 they give depending on the promo at the time you sign up. Right now it's 25 free all you need is an e-mail. They only ask you to pay the price of the final bid if you win the auction and you have the choice to use paypal, gift card or ccard. I use paypal or gift cards only just in case. They do have a TV commecial thats how I found them. My e-mail is Freebeezids@yahoo.com if you want to get free bids, I give them to you because I get free bids also if you join. That's why I do it!
Sorry if you think this is spam, but I am trying to help you all, but also I'd like to get some free bids, GL

I have been a zbiddy customer for about 3 months and have won and received many very nice items including an ipad 2.

I also was charged 159.00 without authorizing the transaction. I did try to email the company but did not get a response. I ended up buying the high price item to at least get .60 cents on my dollar but I stilll paid over retail by close to the amount they charged my credit card.
