Just checking out the new website of www.choochookazoo.com and looking at the bid history on the acer laptop.

This sure does look rigged to me. If you look on the bid history the bids are placed exactly at a particular time between two bidders.

Are they in some kind of testing? If not, this is a red flag for sure.:mad:

Are you new to penny auctions? That precisely place bid is the work of the bid buddy. Which all user have access to use if they want. Some people like to click until their finger gets sore. :smilielol5:

That is the funniest and saddest thing I have heard in a while. Probably because I know how precious those blankies are to my grandkids! We have had to buy 2 identical for each of them so that when 1 needs to be washed, they still have 1 to carry around. Even with the blankie "doubles", they still get pretty ratty looking and really should be burned. By the way, sorry about the mixer!! But it will be going to a good home if that's any consolation.

Don't think anything funny is going on at ChooChoo. Don't know about sylvia, but sandmfish is an active PAW member. As for the timing issue, they are probably both on auto bids. They seem to "kick off" around 27-30 seconds.
I used to be a powerbidder, but now I just make mental bids. That’s how I lost my mind.

I'm not sure either. If you look at the time it seems like bots to me....

I don't want to point fingers at something that is legitimate but since we are a new PA site it does seem a odd that they are able to offer such a big ticket item in there first couple weeks. We just launched last Friday and since we play an honest game there is no way we could offer a big ticket item so soon.

We plan to add bigger ticket items when we get X number of members. So if your not signed up with us come on over. We play a fair and honest game:P.

Hey Suzq...I AM SO GLAD..you can relate. I certainly wasn't fast enough to set autobid and chase 3 year old!! 2 Funny. I thought his mother would need smelling salts:smilielol5: GOOD JOB, THO!! I'm also glad to know the bidders are real, IAM, and I am glad it's going to a good home. I'm expecting another G'Baby so I have my eye on another prize!!;)

I understand the concern and I am happy to take a moment to acknoledge that this is definately something that could potentially be a red "flag" however these users are real and legit as many of you have already said you use the autobid yourself so you understand how it works. We have verifiable reciepts for payments received by these customers and I would like to assure you we intend to run a legitamate business. As far as the value of some of these items, it is true on several we are getting killed but our intent has worked many people have noticed us very quickly and we have had a great response. That is all for now hope this helps and happy bidding!

Thank you,

ChooChooKazoo

I wondered the same thing about having big ticket items so soon, but I asked the owner about it, and he responded. Check out this thread and start at post #4. http://www.pennyauct...read.php?t=2331

And that, my friend, is how the penny auction food chain works! Guess no one realizes that you are the BIGGEST cat of all...although your avatar isn't really all that intimidating. Cute but not scarey.

I don't know if he belongs to PAW, but I've seen him around other sites.

Is it just me or did all the bid buddies dissapear on every auction? I setup an autobid on PS3 and went to check on it an hour later and it was over at 8 cents.:S
The autobid never started. But they claim everything is fine on there end. But I don't see anyone using bid assist since that PS3 auction ended.

Similar thing happened on winno when admin restarted an auction and wiped out my autobid. By the time I got the email from them saying to reset your autobids the auction was over. Someone gets a laptop for a few bids. I didn't even get to participate in the auction.

Hey Sodaman
I noticed that, too. They were on earlier and I just went there to put in some autobids and it is gone. Come play at our place if you like.

Unfortunately we did have a glitch with the autobids that we found and we were able to fix it and all is well now! Again I would like to clarify that we are all live and real people here. We do a lot of local advertising and have had a large response. We have payment receipts as well as their information. We do not give out our users information however if you would like I will definately encourage our users to post on here to varify that they are real people. Thank you to all of our bidders and I do wish you all happy bidding!

Thank you,

ChooChooKazoo
