I purchased over $250.00 in order to place bids on auctions on the beezid auction site. I have been purchasing merchandise from auction sites for at least ten years. I am very familiar as how an auction works. I am certain that I won four auctions. At the end of these auctions, the same two names started popping up. On all four auctions, of the the two names ended up winning instead of me. I started watching other auctions on this site. The same thing was happening on all of the other auctions I watched. This site forces you to “purchase” bids before you can make a bid on anything. This should have been my first clue that something wasn’t right. I did win two auctions, but they were auctions that enabled be to purchase more bids at a lower price. Bottom line: people keep buying more and more bids with the promise of winning a $800.00 laptop for $40.00. The only auctions you have any chance of winning are the actions that enable you to purchase more bids at a reduced price.
