penny auction scams

I have to admit...I was quickly excited when I found my first so called "penny auction". But I soon realized that many of these guys use automated bots to bid against you to raise the price.

What a waste!

Stay away from scam penny auctions! Buyer beware!

Will let you know some sites that are worthwhile in my next posts...
