Many months ago, before the penny auction site bid66 opened, we posted an interview that we had with one of Bid66.com’s representatives. Today the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review featured an article on John Conley, Bid66.com’s owner.
We would like to thank Jason Cato for the interview and mentioning Penny Auction Watch.
From the article:
“John “Duffy” Conley is the man behind Bid66.com, a Robinson-based penny auction Web site waging an advertising blitz on local airwaves and a marketing campaign featuring bumper stickers on light poles and guard rails from Penn Hills to the North Side.
“People like to see someone get on the right track,” said Conley, 46, who last summer finished a second federal prison stint for gambling.
Conley and William Curtin, his right-hand man in the video poker empire, want to cash in on the penny-auction bonanza.
“You can’t fix the past, but you can do something with your future,” said Curtin, 54, of Heidelberg. “And that’s what we’re trying to do.”
“A lot of people go to jail because they don’t want to work,” Conley said. “I went probably because I worked too hard.”
Curtin said neither he nor Conley want to go back to prison.
“We want this to be 100 percent legit and legal,” Curtin said. “By no means do I want to look over my shoulder again.”
“He is convinced his reputation for being fair with people through his illegal-gambling operations will help his new venture.”- Read the full article
