Did TheBidShak.com Just Scam Bidders and Shut Down?

Did you bid on the penny auctions at TheBidShak.com?

A few months back I personally purchased bids and tested out TheBidShak.com. I won a few gift cards and still had bids remaining in my account. I was surprised to find that they did eventually (after a month) ship three of the cards I won. I won a few more, but due to the long wait time in shipping and the inability to log back in my account I didn’t claim my other items, and they stopped responding to my support e-mails.

There was low competition, so it was quite easy to win the gift card auctions that this penny auction site offered. Perhaps they just lost too much money that they couldn’t afford to ship wins out so decided to shut down like many penny auctions do.

The message displayed on thebidshak.com is now  the “this webpage is not available – the server at thebidshak.com can’t be found, because the DNS lookup failed.” message.

TheBidShak.com’s whois registrant is private, so finding out who ran thebidshak.com won’t be easy, but now may be time to file chargebacks if you had outstanding bids/items and have yet to hear from the penny auction site.

That’s why online pharmacies is becoming more pop 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 disfunction can be a result of a physical condition. Even when it has a physical reason, psychological problems can make the disorder worse. Sex drive problems are so commonly a product of how you feel that there is some to that “headache” saying after all.

    This guy never shipped me a single thing. I didn’t lose much, because it was just shipping charges. I did some digging and I found out exactly who this guy is. He owns another business In Tampa Florida. I don’t care if he doesn’t send the won items, but I would like a refund for my shipping charges. If he keeps that, it is blatant theft. If anyone cares to find out who this clown is, (trust me he is a clown :)) reply to this message.

      I would love to get some info on the guy. I kept track of everything in an Excel file but I am lucky, as are a lot of others, their merchant account was all screwed up. This prevented anyone from paying for their won auctions and the shipping & handling associated with the auction. Before the merchant account issues, I was able to pay for a lot of won auctions and the S&H. I had used my PayPal debit card so I will need to contact PayPal tomorrow and see if they can help.

      Back to the request … I would sure like it if you can send me the information on this guy.

      Thank you,

    I have had the same experience, except that my won items never arrived. I made the decision to join the site on a whim and I’m sorry to find out that it was mostly a sham. I will be asking for my money back very soon.
