Penny auctions aren't they? You buy bids and use those to bid on items. Trouble is, when you bid time is added and the price goes up this gives someone a chance of outbid you.

if you get it right you can make huge savings, but everyone else loses out.

Kind of like gambling, where the house wins all the time.

Ebay is much better, you know when you have won, and what you have won and when you have won a bid.

+ you dont have to purchase fictitious money to bid with !!

only if you have a compression tester and know how to check the OB for problems! we get lots of horror stories from people about this site as they see it running but it would not push a pea down a slope!
