TdBids.net & dtr777777 Possible SCAM ALERT!

We have reason to believe that Rebecca Choe of New Jersey aka (DTR777777 on the Penny Auction Watch forum) is shill bidding on her own penny auction site TdBids.net. When we first found Tdbids.net (from a Chitika ad) we saw that DTR777777 had been “winning” many items at low prices and we e-mailed her to ask her if she had received her items.

Here’s a copy of her e-mail to us:

We received a few items from TdBids, but became suspicious of how high prices would go when we would bid. It seemed like the only time the items ended for high amounts was when we had placed bids on them. We often wondered how they could afford to “give away” so many items at the prices they did and still stay in business.

To prove our suspicions we spent an exorbitant amount of money last night on a Nintendo Wii where DTR777777 was the only opponent, each time we used the autobid function DTR777777 would also put herself on autobidder at conveniently the same time.  We found it odd that whenever we would place bids on TdBids we would pay far beyond what other auctions have ended for.

TdBids recently changed their website and a full history of auctions is not available.  DTR777777 has been the only user on the forum to bring up TdBids and recently she asked when it would be back up. Also, when TdBids.net had test auctions the user “vibbu” was bidding, we highly doubt that this powerbidder  would be bidding on their test auctions.

Lastnight we did some investigating and found that our suspicions were correct.

How do we know that DTR777777 (Rebecca Choe) owns TdBids.net?

  • When DTR777777 first found PAW she used her first name, Rebecca, when she left comments.
  • An e-mail from TdBids shows the name Rebecca Choe:rebecca email
  • The backend of our forum shows DTR777777’s e-mail address: tndshop@gmail.com:

dtr777777

  • A Google search of tndshop@gmail.com shows that it belongs to Rebecca Choe of Rochelle Park, NJ, as found on http://www.eslteachersboard.com/cgi-bin/homestay/index.pl?page=2;read=12103: homestay rebecca choe
  • TdBids.net is located in New Jersey and is a  limited liability company.

tdbid llc

  • DTR777777 has been quick to call out penny auction sites and tells us that she reports them to the authorities.

Here are some of her forum posts:

From the Bidstick thread: “Don’t even try this site. Bad… Scam… I spent $600.00 with paypal account and won laptop. They never ship the winning items and you can not claim to paypal when it pass 2 months. Even you explain to paypal, don’t get money back and not getting any winning items. Bad site… No customer support…”
BlitzPenny: “Tell us detail. How they scam you???”
GiftCardBidz : “Couldn’t see winner or end auction. Can not see winner. So, could be scam. They deleted ended auction page.”
WormDealz: ” The site is gone. I did not even know if this site was opened. You report to FBI, IRS, nothing will be help. I did it reported to FBI for one of the penny auction site and they don’t do anything. Even Now they are in penny auction now… Try. But I guess nothing will help…”
BidMyDreams: “What’s the your seller name so we can see your feed back and make sure if that is you… Are you amazon electronics bestseller in canada??? Please let us know your seller name and one of listing link… If this is true… Is it you registered from taipei??? This is not canada according to your registered. BidMyDreams  Taipei  Taiwan, Taipei 23558″
HappySpree: “Looks like scam to me. &  Read carefully. Term and condition. “Product won will be shipped within 4-6 weeks of the auction closing date. Members are limited to 1 unpaid winning item in their back office at any one time.”
If you won 10/5/2009, You will have to wait until 4 weeks…..”BidLew: I will not use penny auction site that only have paypal payments. Hard to getting moneyback from penny auction scam site.

A user on the forum once posted this, we think that quite possibly Ms. Choe has done the very same thing with her auction TDBIDS.net:

Because real user won’t go to that site and they may start using these user as the fake user.That will be disaster.

Not only is Rebecca Choe/Dtr777777  defrauding people (and hopefully she has not stolen from anyone else), she has even gone so far as to copy BidRodeo.com’s newsletter and catchphrase “Hold on the longest and win!”

That’s why online pharmacies is becoming more popular over the last years. Well-known are remedies which are used to reduce inflammation caused by inflammation of the skeletal muscle etc. There were only few examples. Did somebody tell you about canadian generic Viagra? Maybe you already know about the matter. Sexual malfunction can be a result of a physical condition. Even when it has a physical cause, psychological problems can make the disorder worse. Sex drive problems are so commonly a product of how you feel that there is something to that “headache” saying after all.
