Here are a few comments that we found on Ripoffreport:
“Last posting: Tuesday, March 16, 2010
One must purchase ‘credits’ to bid on a particular item. Every time someone bids (a shill) the auction is delayed (this happens several times, even after the auction has ‘ended’), and you are forced to either bid again or let it go if the cost gets too high. You think you may try for another item a little later, however, they’ve taken all your credits and you’re left out in the cold. Attempts to contact them go ignored so hopefully PayPal will be of assistance. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM!!! I did an internet search prior to participating but found nothing so that’s why I’m reporting them here.”
Looks like a lot of users are suggesting bot bidders, when I saw them awhile back I was wondering…:
“What I do have a problem with and what the “owner of the company” fails to acknowledge either here or anywhere on their website, is that, as a genuine bidder, you will also be bidding (or betting) against “robots” clearly created and operated by the “BidFun Team”. This is not immediately apparent and even after (as the “owner of the company” suggests) watching the auction for 5 minutes it is not clear. Indeed, this only becomes obvious when you have watched or participated in the auction over a period of some 7 hours or more and when, after some time you also notice that the same bidders that are placing literally hundreds of bids in your auction, are also placing the same quantities of bids in other bidfun.com auctions running simultaneously.”
Another reporter:

“I was determined to win an auction and used the site for 24hrs, none-stop, and it became very apparent to me that they were  either using robots or employees who did not have to pay for bids to out-bid other bidders, so that infact there is no real auction. As you have to pay in advance to bid, you’re simply giving them money and don’t have a fair chance of winning an auction. I witnessed robots created to outbid other bidders and the amount placed on these robots would have exceeded the cost of the items on auction.  Even more bizzare was the fact that 4 or five bidders seemed to log on at exactly the same time and followed the exact same pattern of creating robots that seemed to bid more money than the retail price for the item on auction for various items seems a little too much of a coincidence, and the same names seem to bid in this way and always win.”

From SiteJabber:

“For those of you who say it isn’t a scam, just a cleverly set up auction website, it is a scam when they use their own robots to drive up the prices. Had you spent the same amount of time I did, writing down all of the bidders- willie2buy,dmeleard, stephdegu,hrv59,mimioct,jejln,laugae2,emmastubbs70,risqueur,nyataige, all of these bidders bid on every item over and over again, for hours, on automatic. That costs thousands of dollars. Would you, in your right mind, bid thousands of dollars on a gizmo that only costs $200? You could go to the store and buy it if you had that kind of money, couldn’t you? So, it’s not just that you lose the bid, it is that you are set up to lose. And that is not right, nor is it fair. “

    Yes I agree with those people that think Bid Fun is a scam web site. these mother fuckers and there associates like Pay pal and more set up to rep off poor people.

    I stayed awake for more than 33 hours to see if a real manual bidder would bid every now and then, but no. the amount of money put or spent on one item that dose not cost more than 350 dollars in the market and a legitimate bidder could only spend two hundred dollars or maybe more on these cunts site; but you will wait and bid every now and then to check for the robot that has a screen name and on one item you could easily tell spends more than 600 dollars, where you and I should give up bidding, and that's what I did. I still have 29 credit left but I am hoping these cunts spend the money on some sort of disease or even worst thing that I pray for them and there families, because those live life of luxury from our misery.

    will for those of you that see history's events unfolding before your eyes from not too far but just the past ten years, you should believe that there is a God watching us and that God will pay those who do good or bad accordingly. so it is a matter of time before these scammers get cancer and die.

      This is definately a samming/gaming site and should come under the same laws, licencing and regulations of other gaming sites…..You would do better to put money in a poker machine and hope you win enough to go to the local electronic store and “BUY” to item you want..
      I have complained to the authorities about this site and have cancelled my paypal account also I have stopped payment through my private banking institution to paypal.
      These bastards are probably in it together and can’t be trusted.,
      Facebook and twitter are powerful tool these days…I’ve told all my friends about Bidfun (rigfun) and hopefully if enough people relay the message on their facebook and twitter pages the bastards will go out of business..before they up and die

    How to spot a scam:

    1. If it's too good to be true, it probably is.

    2. Think how the system can be abused and it will.

    (a) Can easily have an insider drive up the auction price.

    (b) Anonymity on internet just makes that easier.

    3. Be wary of paying on new websites that have no reviews.

    Bidfun.com is a great idea if the dam ceos werent so greedy. If it werent for all those bot bidders we would have decent shot at winning some items and make money for the website at the same time, but the owners want to get rich overnight. They make these company bots win the auction costing all the bidders money and they keep the product. Give us a dam chance you bastards, look at all the money your making at least let consumer bid with consumers and you will still get you $1 on every bid. Its dam obvious you idiots are gonna get caught soon so maybe thats why your trying to rake in as much money as you can. GREAT WEBSITE IDEA, WRONG PEOPLE RUNNING IT!

    Has anybody actually received their “won” item from Bidfun? I “won” an item on the 16th October but it hasn’t arrived yet (funny that?). After searching their website I finally found a way to email them with an enquiry but not surprisingly they haven’t replied. Amusingly, they use the word “won” when in fact you have “purchased” the item. I thought I was lucky by getting back my $70 when I “won” the item, but now there is no sight of it. I’ve got 3 credits left and then that’s it.

            How are they stupid? An item that sells for $7.00 gets them the amount of bids x 1.00$. If the bids incease the bidding price by $0.02 and bids started at 0 dollars, 7/0.02=350$, therefore they received 350 dollars for the item not 100 like they could have gotten on eBay.

    I have won a bid on bid fun for an ipod nano. I won it for $30 and received the nano about 2 or 3 weeks later in the brand new condition. That is the only thing i have won or have bid on really. So i think it works sometimes!

    A TOTAL SCAM FOR SURE! You bid and you loose your money unless you win the item. One person wins and all the rest loose all their money (points) they offered as a bid on that item. If you bid 20 points ($20) on an item and you are outbid you still loose that $20, does that sound fair to you. EBAY is a much better place to do business than this SCAM site. It’s all there in the FAQ’s . Bottom line is INVESTIGATE before you jump in. the water may not be as deep as you think and you will get hurt. Check out Naxopresence UK Ltd or scams for http://www.bidfun.ca or the likes before you buy, lots of complaints.

    I was sceptical about this site after using PayPal to buy $50 worth of bidding points. I even launched a dispute through PayPal…and then thought I had better use up the remainder of my points for PayPal to consider this. That is when I won a 16GB + 3G ipad!!! It was delivered by UPS and is wrapped under my Christmas tree. In total it cost me $66.12!!! Would I recommend tis site? No I would not. This site is no different than going to a casino…and we know how quickly you can lose your money there. It is NOT a scam. “Step right up! Take your chances! Place your bet!”……

    I also wanted to mention that BidFun included a free case because Apple cancelled the original order by mistake…making me more sceptical…but they answered every email and I received the ipad in less than 1 week after winning it!!! This site is not a scam and with the case my savings is > 100% !!! Lucky. If you do not want to risk losing your money I would suggest you shop on eBay!!

    I recently went on this site with the intent to bid for a ps3. I had spent $40 to get points and for three days i put bids in here and there but really examined how the bidding worked and who was more likely to win. I found a pattern and bet using this pattern in mind. First of all most people who win the bids are the ones who set up robots to automatically bid for the reason being no one really wants to give up a $1 knowing they are going to be outbid to the robot. Second only bid when no other robots are set up otherwise this could cost alot of money in seconds. Third is timing knowing who really wants this item and what they are willing to spend for it and never start bidding till time starts getting to 1 minute. Finally I did this my very first time on this site and won a ps3 slim 120G for $14.20 using only 23 bids. If you are going to use this site realize who you are bidding against and how to get the most from your bids on this site. Oh yah also never bid on manual bidding settups the prices get crazy insane because no one has to worry about automatically loosing there $1.00 bid.

Breakdown Started with 50 points then added 89 point followed by spending 70 points and winning a Mac Air for $76 in total spen $126 for a $1200 laptop

Haven’t gone through and analyzed it like some of you have but I got sucked in and have a few “POINTS” to spend as can’t get a refund! Should have researched it better before I bought them! Guess its a case of if it looks too good to be true then it usually is!

    Here is the answer you are all looking for – to prove that it is nothing more than a scam!!! I have been bidding for an iPod Touch today and my money has just been “disappearing” – I sent them an email asking why my “points” were not credited back to my account when I was not successful in my auction bid and here is the reply –

    Hi,

    I’m not quite sure what would have given you the impression that you should get them back? As explicitly stated on the site, each bid costs 1 point, whether you win the auction or not.

    The BidFun team.

    It appears that BidFun has the perfect “auction” model – not only do they get the “winning bidder’s” money (if there is a winning bidder), but they also keep all the losing bidder’s money as well!!!!

    I always thought that was called theft?

    I have lost a lot of money on my one try on that damn sight. On that day I noticed the same bidder (robot) going after several big auctions and driving the price up… It is a scam no doubt! The fact that they allow a few (real) people to win here and there is only for appearances and apparent credibility. Once they consider that they have made enough money or they want to highlight a range of winning prices to entice new buyers they let it get sold. How on earth they have not stood on the inside of a courtroom is beyond me…

    Seems like a brilliant (but exploitative) business idea. The bidding points that you buy are like casino chips or a sort of entry fee for each time you bid. I think that in itself isn’t a scam, but it needs to be spelt out very clearly to all members. I think it would be a scam if they do not send you your product and if they plant their own bidders to drive up the number of bids. A friend just bought an iPad 2 for $100 (including what she paid for bid points). Let’s see if she receives it with no problems.

    This site is no doubt a scam as ALL Pennyauction sites are. They ALL use bidbots. Think about it….If a new auction site just starts up and not many people know about it yet, then the few that do would win items extremely cheap all the time and the site owners would lose money. Bidbots ensure that they turn a profit from the very start of their operation. Even when their customer base builds up, why would they ever get rid of their bidbots? Bidbots are insurance for them to make sure they are the only true winners. Winning is possible but you are against the odds and will always lose more than you will win. This being said I don’t have any sympathy for people like Dean Allen who join these sites without understanding the rules and whine for their money back when they don’t win an item. READ THE TERMS!!!

  • skeptic123 November 16, 2011, 9:17 am

    I ran into the same thing. Its definitely a scam because they use bots to increase the bids beyond a certain point (ie where they have guaranteed they made their money and a profit). I think the concept is a great idea as several others mentioned but this one takes advantage of the bidders by using the bots. This is why eBay has rules against shill bidders driving prices up. Unfortunately I don’t think there are any laws protecting consumers against these types of sites but I have no doubt that like pyramid schemes these too will eventually become regulated or illegal.

    As mentioned with Paypal, there was a time when Paypal would seize the funds in any account randomly claiming that they had a legit reason to do so (usually with the excuse that they suspected the funds were going to terrorism or the drug trade) but in time after several class action lawsuits the government finally stepped in and forced Paypal to follow banking regulations which prevented them from seizing funds whenever they wanted. I know of no auction sites similar to this one that are legit but hey I’m a developer. Maybe I should build one. First thought is clearly outline the rules and guarantee bidders that there are no shill (bot) bidders.

    One of the auctions I looked at was an iPhone 4. It went for 154.71. That means that with bids increasing at .01 a bid, that auction would have had 15,471 bids totaling about 15,471 dollars for a phone that costs a few hundred dollars (assuming every bidders bids cost 1.00). Can you imagine the profit margin if those were actual bids (no doubt most of them were shill bids).

    Also, you’ll notice that they clearly state it will take about 20 days for you to receive the item. That’s because they don’t even have the item when you’re bidding on it. They drop ship. Meaning you bid on the item, when the auction ends they purchase the item from their funds, and the item gets shipped to you. That’s why it takes so long to ship. They have to get it first before sending it to you. And its easy for them. They have no overhead on purchasing the items because they collect the money before actually stocking it. So for that iPhone I mentioned, they take in thousands of dollars from the bidders, then when the auction ends they take a few hundred our of their thousands they collected and purchase the item, then repackage it and ship it to you. Slick. Nothing illegal about that but you should note that when or if an issue comes up with the item. Its likely you won’t be able to return it if there is an issue.

    This is truely a SCAM. After spending $300 and playing for about two hours I realized that I was quickly running out of money. They say that bids cost 0.02 cents. In reality they cost close to a dollar each. When I got down to 230 points I wanted to jump ship. I sent the BIDFUN team an email and requested a refund of $200. The reply I received is that you should have read the terms and conditions and there will be no refund. FUCKING BIDFUN

    Looks like I’ve lost my $20.00 then! I’m “NO IDIOT” but suppose I was sucked in by the leaches too, the only reason i signed up with BIDFUN was because it is supported by PAYPAL which I believed to be a secure site this company called “BIDFUN” is giving everyone a headache, thieving peoples hard earned cash and DISCREDITING PAYPAL’S NAME.

    I tried BidFun here in New Zealand a while ago, but found that I wasn’t getting anywhere and I had spent way too much money to get nothing. I also absolutely didn’t have time to sit at the computer all day. I tried a few times at weird times of the night, but still got no-where. Has anyone noticed that their default number of points is expensive? In New Zealand, it’s $130! I don’t think I bought that many credits – don’t remember now.

    I hadn’t really considered bots, but I can see now how it all makes sense. So, yes, I’ll admit that I was sucked in at first, but now, I wouldn’t go anywhere near them.

    Come on folks. For every $1 the bid rises, the scammers have taken $50 at a 2 cent rise per bid. .I watched an iPad worth $800 rise to $80 or something like that, by which time the organizers had reamed over $4200 out of the bidders. But then considering it went to a robot, it probably wasn’t sold at all. Tell ’em ‘fuck ’em.

    It is a scam and some of those people who stated otherwise here def work for this company. I am sure though that from time to time bidfun does send an odd product to those who win but the winners are usually their robots. This company has exactly identical auctions going on on all their international sites bidfun.au.com, bidfun-nz.com, bidfun.com and bidfun.co.uk and the winners are the same on all these websites.
    I bid on a tomtom and had 5 min left and was the last winning bidder but the clock restarted over and over again and the auction that was meant to last 5 minutes in fact lasted for over 3 more hours. Please stay away. I hope one day they’ll be put in prison, these guys.

    Hi everyone, well I joined Bidfun-nz.com last night, I was searching for a camera for my daughter and the first in line in search was Bidfun… so looked at it , read it, joined it, and found the camera.. it had 3 hours to go, been late at night, I thought okay I will wait, do some sewing while I wait, checking on the bidding everynow and then, it got to 26 mins left to go before the auction would finish, so I decided yes I would put in $50.00 so I could bid, went to get my wallet so I could put in the details so that Bidfun could get my money, and I would then start bidding, ONE last check on the bids for the camera, HANG ON WHAT IT GOING ON, the TIME is now 2 hours MORE TO GO before it finishes… I was SAVED… right there and then I put my wallet away…. I am one of the lucky ones, this morning I found this site, thanks guys and gals..

    i have won three items int he past and traded them for pay pal credits. all very quick and I really got the money. today however I won an auction on 20 bid fun points. It said finished and had my name but when I checked the finished auctions I was the second last bid!!! I screen spotted my win and have contacted them about it because I was the winner when it said finished and I have proof! hopefully I still get my points. don’t like my chances though.

    Hah.
    This is a great page. Just try to ask mr. google ”shepsil bidfun” and you’ll see that this bot places bids at every item, daily and has done that for many months… (9 pages far in google)

    I’ll place a bid, just for fun untill my ‘point’ are fnished, and will let u guys know the outcome.

    Beware : always limit ur expenses !!

    I have! I won an iPhone 4s. I worked out it cost me around $60. I was on the US site and they sent me an email saying it was cheaper to credit my Paypal account rather than mail the phone. They did and I bought my daughter the phone with the money they deposited.
