On BozBids’ registration page a video for police auction site PropertyRoom.com plays, we asked BozBids’ outsourced support via chat if they had police auctions and they said, “All BozBids stuff is warehoused, but not police related. The video is part of the design we do not offer that option.”
Reminds me of this video:
When asking BozBids’ outsourced chat support what their business name was and where they were located they stated they don’t provide that information for “security purposes.” They did say that they’re located in Florida.

When asking if there were fees to register, support told me “no sir, but at the moment that the site ask you for the card information is for the purchase of the bids.” So once you input your credit card information into this site you’re consenting to buying a bid pack (in the past, on other penny auction sites consumers did not realize this).
BozBids.com appeared to have been paying affiliates $70/conversion.

“1 Auction Won= 1 Vaccine”
We e-mailed BozBids last week to get more information on their vaccine donation program with UNICEF, “1 Auction Won = 1 Vaccine” but have yet to receive a response. It looks like they will be funding 121289 vaccines to date if this philanthropic program began on November 7th, 2010.
