On the internet I read an article about auctions and the pssibillity to get electronics at bargain prices. I thought it was a good idea as many things get sold in the auction mode. I the article there was a xbid.com link when clicked on send one to various websites involved with auctions and in the help section I read that I had to buy the bids in order to take part in the auctions, penny auctions, dime auctions etc. On my creditcard I purchased $75.- and as I thought that that was realy too low I purchased $45. more from the xbid site. The rest is history, money gone, xbid gone but I am sure those thieves are waiting for an other sucke.
