ZbiddyZBIDDY.com is a blow out auction internet site

ZBIDDY.com is a blow out auction internet site. They lead you to believe you sign up for free and like Ebay start bidding. I gave them credit card information (I know better than this) and wanted to start bidding. Next thing you know I get an email message. I bought $159.00 of 265 bids. I have no idea what happened. I believe they are a fraud and hope you expose them. You sign up and charged for signing up. Terrible, terrible, terrible!

      Its not standard practice to purchase bids at the same time as you are register. On other auction sites you can register without having to buy bids. This company also sells all of your information, including your credit card, email and cell, home phone numbers and excludes any liability for any company who buys this information for there use.

    Zbiddy.com — Took $99. 00 out of my account

    I pulled up their web page to register for free just to look at the products they have. And before i knew it...

    Zbiddy.comThought I was getting bids for 60.00 but was charged 60.00 plus 59.00

    Thought I was getting bids for 60.00 but was charged 60.00 plus 59.00. Also bidding was crazy with .60 a bid for individual .01 bids for these products. Near the end of auctions I was blindsided by the 10 second extension of time for last bids and when the bidding stopped a lot of the same people were winning. I won one 5.00 auction for a Chilli's gift card that had a seven cents bid on the books for 6 hours. THESE PEOPLE ARE FRAUDS!

        Wrong Wrong Wrong

        I was on hold waiting for one of your friendly agents for about 45 minutes (the recording said the wait time was about 10 minutes). After 45 minutes, the friendly agent hung up on me.

        Meanwhile I was on the chat line waiting for a response for about an hour.
        I was looking for a refund and was offered half off because they knew "how I will enjoy using and winning on Zbiddy".

        When they finally relented and offered to refund my entire $99 charge, I was told that the refund would take 5-7 business days. I am still waiting to see the refund.

        Meanwhile i have had my bank cancel my bank card so no additional unauthorized charges can be made. They have also started filing the dispute paperwork.

        What is your guess as to the likely-hood of success?

      Zbiddy — fraud charges

      charged my account 159.00 I was told 59.00.The ENTIRE SITE IS FAKE!!! I want my money back or i will sue.. NO...

      Zbiddydeceptive pratices

      BEWARE OF ZBIDDY.COM AUCTIONS-after being linked to zdiddy i saw items going really cheap(ha) so i thought i would get in on this. little did i know that this was just a guise to rip you and me off . i could not bid until i registered which i did. when i went to bid i couldn't bid until i registered my credit card info which read at the top "where can we send your winnings to" so i proceded to fill out the info in case i bought something all the info would be there. well i went to bid and couldn't until i checked the box at the bottom of the credit info start bidding. well---i still couldn't bid so i went to my inbox mail to see if i needed to click on something to firm up the registering but instead found an email where i just purchased 100 bids for 45.00 which i didn't have any knowledge of. so i replied no i didn't and refund my money on my credit card. well i guess i shouldn't have done that because l9 minutes later i received another email saying i just purchased their most popular bid package of 265 bids for the low price of $159.00 which i didn't, of course. in just 19 minutes they charged me $204.00. upon email complaint again i heard nothing. so i called customer service and they told me someone would call me back in 24-72 hours. so i flipped, boy did i flip and i don't mean the finger. in the blink of an eye they charged me the first 45.00 and could not refund my 45.00 . what the heck do you call that? i spoke to a floor manager that said she was trying to help me and to calm down. all the questions i asked she had no answer for except to repeat "is it on your credit card statement?". i told her to quit asking that same question as the answer was i don't have it yet. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN A CLASS ACTION SUIT I THINK WE HAVE A N EXCELLENT CASE FOR ONE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE COMPLAINTS THROUGHOUT THE INTERNET MOST PEOPLE HAVE BEEN CHARGED $159.00. IF YOU ARE ONE OF THESE AND ARE INTERESTED IN A CLASS ACTION PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS. I FEEL THAT WE NEED TO SHUT ZBIDDY DOWN AND OUT OF BUSINESS. LET ME KNOW YOUR OPINIONS AND HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS IDEA. IF YOU HAVE HAD A GOOD TRANSACTION WITH THIS ECOMPANY I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT IT. THANKS SO MUCH FOR LISTENING AND BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU GO ON THE NET.

          I don't agree with you. I am a user of many penny auction site and before you purchase any bid package, there are certain steps which itself notify you that you're going to purchase a bid package and you're person who select the bid package amount. So, I don't understand that why you are disagreeing with this. Wake up sid!!!

          I am confused . All autions requre you to purchase a bid pack . bigcactus.com charges $55 dollars I think to even get into their aution . I tired to regiister at about three and all had the same process. Upon registering to zbiddy I received 25 free bids which of course I did not know what I was doing, went fast then you may go to their purchase bids page. There they have a beginners pack for I think 27 dollars. which is i think 45 bids...can't remember right this minute. They stress under the topic How It Works to watch what is going on go to all the pages, read and observe. If you go to the bid voucher auctions, you will see you can use the bids you bought larger bid packs. 200 bids I have gotten for as little as 37 cents..there is a two dollar processing fee for all card transactions..but that is a HUGE savings at that price, rather than to go and purchse the bid packs outright. I have had issues with my site working and they have refunded all bids that I have bide on items and more. The online staff is there around the clock and the phone staff is very nice and will give you tips on how to get more for your money. I do have to dbl check my bank statement after reading all this but i have not received any emails other than confimring my wins...etc. and purchses. Hope this helps. I have to say if you called them and told them what happened, I am so surprised that they just didn't refund your money. YOU know if you have 259 bids or whatever you said you had...it shows them clearly on the top of the page how many bids you have. You had to have seen them . I would like to hear why they did not refund them . I am going to ask them as well what is going on with this. Thanks for the heads up fi this is true.

        Zbiddy.comSite deficiencies

        Zbiddy sucks you in much as Beezid did, but to my surprise I actually won, but as I was bidding on another item the site crashed apparently they don't have a system large enough to handle the volume of traffic they have and they've just started. Be forewarned don't get suckered in like I did. Anytime you buy 75 bids for $45.00 and an item may sell for $50.00 that's 5000 penny bids. Doesn't take a genius to figure out that the losers of each auction pay for the wholesale cost of the items auctioned, basically it's a scam.

            zbiddy is a penny auction, which means you pay each time you bid, and the last bidder gets the item. The opportunity to win products cheaply is very real; in most cases, the winning bidder pays a fraction of the item's retail cost. You just have to be smart about when and how you bid since each bid has monetary value.

            Actually I think they are brilliant! making it sound like such a good deal, however since they call it "penny auction" bids should only cost 1 penny.. unless they change it to 60 cent auctions.. otherwise.. yes its false advertising imo. But as you said, the losers basically pay for the wholesale.. thats bloody brilliant xD

            And when you win they tell you they don't have the item AFTER you pay for it. Happened to me on 4 items.

          Zbiddy.comCalling this gambling game an &auction& is a perversion of the language

          This is a business that sells bids for $.60 apiece that yo can use ot bid on a product. It is set up so that your chance of winning is remote and that the bidders (Bettors) will cumulatiely spend much more than the item costs.

          Calling this gambling game an "auction" is a perversion of the language. It is a scam through and through.

              You may say it is a gambling but if played with proper strategies and patience then it will be a good deal to play such auctions on zbiddy site. I do not agree if you say that zbiddy is a scam because I have won an iphone now and got it shipped.

                Your post is now on a public forum, which means everyone has access to your credit card number. The complaint isn't going to whoever charged your card. I recommend you click on the "e-mail" link on the bottom of this page to have your post removed.

                Maybe publicizing your credit card number is how you ended up with charges you don't remember authorizing.
