A friend of mine recommended the site and said you had to register and give them a payment method in case you won a bid and purchased something. Surprise !! they charged me $100 without asking and would not reverse the charges . They said I could use the bidding points to purchase things on their site but the site says you have to pay in order to bid on items whether you win them or not.
This appears to be a total scam and just another way to steal money from innocent people.
not only did i never receive what I won, but each 0.79 cent charge was being processed as an automatic re...
Charged my credit card 99.00 for absolutely nothing.Non existent phone numbers to contact about this charge [protected] and [protected]. Website states under maintenence...Sure it is...addres probably fake also. Why doesn't someone shut these crooks-obvious hackers down? I suggest filing a class action lawsuit against these people.They are Targeting the OLD and DISABLED!!! THIS HAS TO BE A CRIME!!!
Zbiddy owes me $99.00 and will not refund me. I put more then that on their site but have used some of the...
I was checking out their site, entered my account info and then decided not to make purchase at this time so close to Christmas, so I backed out, I never finalized the transaction. But they still charged my bank account $99.00 !!! I called zbiddy [protected] when I saw the charge hit my account, I was told it could not be refunded but, she would send me a $100 gas card usable at ANY gas station and still keep the bids, I said no, I did not make this purchase and want my account credited. She then said she could refund $40.50 to my account and I could still keep the bids and the gas card as well and that nothing further would be charged to my account, that was her final offer!!!
EVERYONE BEWARE when you visit this site >>> zbiddy.com
A Fool and his $$ are easily parted !
This ripoff place will steal your credit card money fast !
1) What they are selling ? They actually sell you BIDS at .60 cents each . and a dream.
2) They charge you UPFRONT and WITHOUT your approval - $99 (USA dollars) for 1650 Sixteen hundreds and fifty !
bids you can use solely to 'bid' on some ridiculously REDUCED NEW consumer's electronics items . (example Iphone 5 by Apple, will 'sell' for $47 dollars, and traps like that.)
3) What you do NOT know and never told PRIOR to your CC 'Rape' - these bids have to be used in 45 days or you lose them !
So - if you didn't find anything you like to bid on - you'll be out of your $99 in no time.
4) The bidding is yet another joke !
Zbiddy does NOT tell you how many items are in the bidding contest - there is no serial number, no Lot number, you don't even know if they have that product !
you, and many other suckers are bidding on ONE virtual item at the time . There is NO telling how many other bidders are looking at the same 'New Ipad ', as you !
Your hard earned bid-money could be burnt in ONE day - and you won nothing...
5) Bidding against Zombies !
- For all I checked - bidders are most likely just GHOSTS ! - a figment of the Zbiddy programmer 's imagination. NOT real bidders .
You'll never win - and the 'Zombies' will never tired. Your money will run out soon enough.
6) If its sounds too good to be true - it probably is ! rarely told about a more sleazy web site !
7) What can you do - Dispute ALL charges from this 'snake den' ! Including the 3% fee for an 'International Charge' by your bank !
8) Write to your local Newspaper, the FCC, Your state Attorney General, CBS 60 Minutes, Complaintsboard.com. '[redacted].com,
and to anybody else who will listen !
They can cheat some of the people - some of the time, but their day is near !
I won the following auctions:
$25.00 Shopping eCard + 25 bids - 10/13/2013;
$25.00 Shopping eCard + 25 bids - 10/9/2013;
eBook eGift Card: 100 Downloads + 25 Bids 10-08-2013;
eBook eGift Card: 5 Downloads + 25 Bids [protected]:09
However, I never received the promised emails instructing how to utilize the eCards.
I contacted customer service about this as follows:
October 23rd - :Live chat with Ruth. She told me she would be contacting the Shipping Department. I told her this was a waste of my time as the item was not intended to be shipped. She then told me to call Customer Service.
October 23rd - I then called Customer Service and spoke to Representative 267 - Efren. Efren also told me he will be notifying the shipping department and I would be receiving an email within a few days
11/1/2013 - I called Customer Service and spoke with Representative 13 Jayann. He told me that the note to the Shipping Department had been made, and I should be contacted via email.
Sent message from website on 11/10/2013 approximately 6:35 pm
I PDF files of the transcript that I kept, as well as my notes to myself which I emailed to myself to record the dates of the contacts, and I will be glad to submit them to you. My identity with zBiddy is my email address, [protected]@aol.com
zbiddy is the worst, dont register!!! not only will they charge you for things you dont want they wont refund your money.
See for yourself and make your own conclusions from my chat with a live agent from Zbiddy.com:
Thank you for contacting our Customer Support.
My name is Laura. how may I help you today?
[Visitor] I was looking into your website
[Visitor] is it possible to bid from Canada?
[Visitor] I mean, do you guys work with Canadian customers?
[Laura] Sure Visitor, we are working with Canadian customers.
[Visitor] ahh, because I was trying to register but it only gave me the option of entering a US state
[Visitor] what's the difference between your rookie website and the zbiddy.com?
[Laura] The rookie is for beginners.
[Laura] Zbiddy is for the regular customers.
[Laura] Correct Visitor.
[Visitor] I've seen an Iphone 5 there and there is none in the Zbiddy.com website
[Visitor] that's what I am interested in
[Visitor] what do I do then?
we keep updating the site in a daily basis, unfortunately I do not have that exact information at this time, I recommend you to keep checking the site in order to see which items we have
[Visitor] so, but what do I have to do in order to "win" the Iphone 5
Have you ever participated in a penny auction before?
A penny auction is not like a traditional auction. Everyone will first need to purchase bids in order to participate. Bids are credits here, and the value of each bid is usually around $.60.
Each time you bid it will increase the price of the auction by one penny, and each time a new bid is placed within the last 15 seconds of the auction, it will take the clock back up to 15 seconds.
This gives everyone an opportunity to place another bid, just like a traditional auction, going once, going twice, sold!!! It's very simple, you goal is to be the final bidder when the clock hits zero!!!
[Visitor] do I have to register on the rookie website or the biddy.com?
[Visitor] yeah, I kinda know that part
[Laura] You need to go to Zbiddy.com
[Visitor] so, I am lost. What the users that are bidding on the Iphone on the Rookie website did to be able to do that?
[Visitor] because you said that I have to go to biddy.com
[Visitor] and there's no Iphone there
[Laura] You wont find Iphones at Rookie website
[Visitor] when I go to the rookie webiste it gives me some free bids
[Laura] Those items are the one that we have at Zbiddy.com
[Visitor] just to bid on limited staff
[Visitor] and it states that the rest of the products that are being auctioned are just for biddy.com customers
[Visitor] and there is no iphone in the biddy.com website
[Visitor] is this rookie website fake then?
[Visitor] I see an iphone being auctioned right now there
The operator has ended the chat. Thanks for contacting us.
I just visited the site www.Zbiddy.com . For my curiosity I thought of registering the new account . I entered my address and Credit Card details. When i logged out I found an Unauthorized Transaction for $119 happened without my permission . I have reported to my bank also . This Site is totally fraud.
Please cancel my membership at Zbiddy.com effective immediately! I was billed $99.00 and I didn't even buy anything! This site is a scam and I got to it through greatgifts.com, wal-mart, which is a BIG scam. Their site is not even active. Perhaps that is why this happened. Again, I thought tzbiddy was a free site. My Mother is very sick in the hospital and I can't afford this charge!!! Please delete this charge immediately or I will have to call the Better Business Bureau and other site and report this fraudulent charge. Thank you.
I received an email from someone stating the product were so cheap to bid on because its a new site, and not...
I bought some bids in the beginning and won some small five dollar gift cards but when i got into a little more you can never win anything of real value. I always have connectivity problems then they say I have no bids when i have several hundred. It is just a joke this site was probably started by somebody with the last name Madoff.
Do not open anything from this site! They charged my credit card $99 just for looking! They will not return any of your money. I don't know how they can keep taking money with out authorization?? Stay away from here! I have aBBB complaint in, so far ...nothing!!
I received an e-mail detailing how much money people saved on purchases through their auction. How they received my e-mail address is in question. I stupidly provided my charge card number and was immediately charged. I tried to cancel the transacion by trying to use their chat without success. I tried to forward them an e-mail to customer support with no response. There were no up front instructions that for every bid 60 cents is charged against the $60.00 to begin the bidding process. After 100 bids, I maxed out without winning anything. Unlike E-bay, that you first bid at no cost and if you win pay for the item. Who in their right mind would pay to bid. It's not a cost savings but a scam. It was $60 dollars thrown away. ZBIDDY should be put out of business.
I registered for Zbiddy Online Auctions to look around at the auction site and products. What I didn't...
