I can't believe I was lured into joining Bidsauce.com, but actually, I can — because of their misleading tactics.
I joined Bidsauce.com yesterday because I am a Mypoints.com member, and received an email from Mypoints about earning additional parts for signing up. When I clicked on the email, nowhere did it explain how Bidsauce worked. When I saw that Bidsauce was being compared to ebay, it interested me, as ebay has become a disappointment as of late. Also, I saw the reviews you included at the bottom from Wired, New York Times, BBC and other companies, which I later found out were all false and fabricated. Again, no explanation anywhere about how the site works, but a registration form only. So, I signed up thinking that I'd get to read about how this works on the next page. Instead, the next page was a form to purchase your bid boxes.
Now, only after I purchased the bidbox did I recognize the scam. Classic "Bait and Switch." It was even more apparent when I got to see it in action.
I called the customer service department this morning and the representative I spoke to denied that Bidsauce made claims it's compared to ebay or that it has anything to do with mypoints.com. (I have proof of the email as well as the misleading and false website to get you to join.) In addition to this, the representative told me that it's stated in the terms of service that all purchases are non-refundable, BUT the terms of service only comes up AFTER you purchase, not BEFORE, like it should. The customer needs to know all the details before they are tricked into registering.
I'm interested in pressing a class-action suit against them so that they don't continue to scam other people.
