ZBIDDY is Zfraud! I can say that you get what you get. It does live up to its name as a penny auction site, but the objective is for ZBIDDY to make easy money, your money. It's not about you getting anything worthwhile. Just look at the kind of things auctioned. And as one writer noted, they just won some cards and bids. Same here! Some cheap cards and bids. The thing that really bug me, is I bought bids, but if I don't use them I lose them. Talk about giving your money away. This is the place to do it. If you're not giving your money away, you're giving away your time. If you think about it, by the time an item is won by some "lucky" bidder, everyone bidding has already more then paid for the item. ZBIDDY is the only winner here!!! It is more like gambling, and the house is always going to win.

Go to your bank and tell them in person to block the payment. Treat this as a fraud complaint. Tell them they billed without you even buying anything. Since banks are FDIC insured, any kind of fraud involving the bank is a federal matter. You might want to contact the local US Attorney's office.

Zbiddy.com - Frauds
United States

This company took $99.00 out my account. Tells me the same story I've read when I came on this site.
. Says they sent me emails. for 75% refund and restraunt card. I've checked all emails including junk emails. None coming. I've talked to my bank who is unable to do much but put on alert. I've learned an expensive lesson and find this company to be total frauds.

I too was ripped off for $99 and when I called the girl barely spoke English and all she could say was I am sorry you feel that way. Why would someone teach their operators that phrase unless they knew they would be using it. Someone is getting rich and it is deplorable. They should be shut down with a quickness. The whole thing is a rip off. I watched the only 3 things of value get bid on all day and they are stil there. There is not even anything of value on there. It is all gift cards. I can go buy one of those and save myself time. My time is important.

Zbiddy.com - Auto bidder didn't use all my bids
United States

I had put 25 bids in the Z-buddy which is the auto bidder. It didn't use 16 of my bids at the end of the auction and I lost the auction. They don't have an explanation and I am trying to cancel my account.

I was bidding for an item in Zbiddy auction, not knowing their upfront chages. When I saw the charge of $99.00, I backed out of the internet, but they charged it anyway. I am protesting it now for a refund through my credit card. Please avoid Zbiddy website. You will get charged by just visiting there. They are scammers !!!

I wish I had checked up on these guys before bidding! I bid on Restaurant eGift Cards not realizing they were only good for certain restaurants! Then when you go to use the card, you have to spend twice as much for your meal for it to be good! When I wanted a refund I was told I had to get it before seven days were up, but they didn't send me the eCards over the internet until nine days after I bought the first ones! The ones that were still within seven days couldn't be refunded either. Talked with my attorney, and I am going to file a Small Claims court case. These people have to be stopped! I hope lots of people read this and don't get sucked into their web of lies and claims.

THIEVES. CRIMINALS. DO NOT register with these people;they WILL rip you off. I cannot believe RICO or the BETTER BIZ BUREAU has not shut these people down yet. Had to actually cancel my favorite cc because they were auto bidding with my cc information WITHOUT my consent!! THEN, when I called customer service in a panic, the 'rep' (i.e. criminal) refused to cancel my membership even when I got angry and had a few choice words to say. REFUSED! Then she REFUSED to allow me to speak to a supervisor! THis is the most blatant scam I have ever seen.SHUT THESE PEOPLE DOWN!!!

Zbiddy.com - Once they get your money, the website is "under construction"
United States

This website is a total scam. Just like many of the other users, once they get your money, the website is "under construction." Should have done my homework. Don't use it!

IT'S A BIG SCAM...I began bidding on a 25 dollar Exxon gift card...each bid cost 60cents...However, there were two individual bidders that was driving up the price...both individuals bidder at least 50 times each...that means each of them spent 30 dollar/person plus the actual cost of the card when the auction is over...THAT IS WAY OVER THE 25 dollar cost of the card itself...ITS A BIG SCAM...DO NOT FALL FOR THIS WEBSITE!!! I checked if this was true on several of their auctions...and it was the same Tactic!!!

Zbiddy is not BBB accredited...I did however used Quibbids and won many things there...and that website is BBB accredited!!!

When I tried canceling my account, they gave me a hard time, trying to offer me various things to keep me on board!!! BE STRONG if you cancel your account...THEY WILL OFFER YOU ALOT!!!

This business is nothing but a scam! It is just an avenue to rob Peter and pay Pay. I was also scammed but not yet through with them even though it's almost been a month now. I will make an official report at the end if nothing positive happened.
