Those terms and conditions are one of the most widely used and you will find them on legit sites as well some less than honest sites. My guess is it is included with the software and the site owners instead of paying an attorney to write new ones will just run with them as few read them. Legal or not it does not stop them from sicking the collection company on you, they might even collect from some, or if nothing else it will deter people from challenging them. The cancelation issue is some sites actually have/had a subscription type membership/plan thus the need for paypal cancelation.

I was going to sign up but I didn't like their terms and conditions so I don't think I will. It looks to me like hidden fees that will come out of your paypal account. The How it works page just says you buy bids for a fee. I think I will skip on the registration there.

$500 per hour. We as a construction company don't charge that much.

Couldn't see winner or end auction. Can not see winner. So, could be scam. They deleted ended auction page.

regarding: cschembera / kschembera
As I watch an auction, may come in on one hit, never rebid.... or come in on an autobid..... and never give up.
Too much inconsistancy..... a human has traits that continue to bid not just a random swoop in and drop out.
Do you see them on any other similar looking site: TdBid, Famdabidosy?
