Quibids QUIBIDS UN-AUTHORIZED CHARGES Internet
21st of Nov, 2010 by User369606
hello. my name is Devin . i just signed up for a new account on quibids, and there is a 48 dollar charge showing up on my credit card. there was not a notification, or permissions or approval for this! there was not and mention of this in the terms and conditions list. privacy policy, or at any point in the registration. this i have tried the support button on the website and what do you know it does not work. i just registered and as soon as it logged in a page popped up and say thank you for you purchase. i even asked the on line support rep if there were and charges for signing up, knowing that they would not be honest i also read all the fine print and all of the terms and conditions. no mention of this. i just requested to see what the fuss was about, i am IT technician for verizon wireless so i know i didn't not "hit any button" to purchase this. i researched the site before joining a lot of complaints but not one where someone was charged un authorized fraudulent charge. so i skipped their support page and sent a direct email and we will see if they will not steal from me and take back their un authorized charge

I concur! This is what I wrote to QUIBIDS:
Wow! All I have to say is that when you have to pay for bids at .60 cents a pop and you get into bidding wars it can get pretty expensive in a hurry even after going after small items like 15 bid vouchers. I joined yesterday without reading your terms and conditions and after getting burned for $60 thinking I was only giving my bank information to join and purchase something if it looked appealing. But, little did I know you had to purchase bids. In a way I feel like I was scammed. I know not everybody wins but, if I were to put my odds against winning something on e-bay for what I spent on this site I could have benefited from e-bay. Shame on me for diving into something I had no knowledge of and spending $60 for a $10 Foot Locker gift card. Waiting in front of the computer for the right time is just a huge waste of time and money. False hope is what your selling to many bidders on this website. Kudos to you for making the website appealing, but shame on us for believing we can win!

This was their response:
Hi Javier -
I am sorry this has been your impression of the website. We try to make our site as transparent as possible. For this reason we created the "QuiBids 101" section of the website which thoroughly describes our business model; and what we would consider to be realistic expectations for our customers to have, as well as the amount of profit / loss the company actually makes with this business model.
I would like to recommend that you read the articles in the QuiBids 101 section, specifically the articles in the section titled, “Our Auction Model Explained”.
It is very possible to win on our site. Since we launched in October 2009, we have had thousands of winners on our site. We have even had a large number of people max out their win limits for a given month. Here at QuiBids we strive to ensure that the customers who participate in our auctions have a great time and experience the fun of winning items at really low prices. It is not, however, realistic to assume that a $27 or $45 bid pack will likely lead to winning a $200+ item on our site, like a MacBook or PS3. While this does happen all the time, it is not a good expectation to have.
I hope this clears up some of your concerns and helps to make our site clear. Please let us know of any suggestions you might have in regards to ways that we can further improve upon our website.
Thank you for your interest in Quibids and have a wonderful day!
Sincerely, Marshall QuiBids Support

This was my response:
In response to your e-mail. Maybe your website should post every bid for what you sell it for $0.60 not a penny! I was just on your website to confirm what I thought was true. An Apple iPad sold on your website for $32.54 (supposedly) that's where you get people to believe that they are getting a great deal! Up to 95% off like you advertise. But, in actuality there was 3, 254 bids @ $0.60 a bid that equals to $1, 952. Your website is misinterpreting it's actual auction value so you can benifit from it. You get people into bidding wars for example Joe, Shmoe & Kathy buy you 800 bid pack for $480. Sounds like a good deal so far for all of them. They get ready and all 3 start getting into a bidding war. Well as you know only one is going to come out winning. Joe and Shmoe are pissed because they blew all their bids and came up empty handed and Kathy won because she had more bids than the other 2. $1, 952 for a $700 product is a steal! NOT!!! This is one of many ways to scam people and I followed suit with the rest of them. Never did I go for the big items because I'm a realistic person but, good job on your web designers presentation.
