I really am just glad to help! I can take mean words, name calling, stupidity, whatever...

But flat out stealing from people I can't abide. Noticed that 51chevytruck, her friend, changed his name yet again to Phreez13.

They also deleted the account of a facebook friend of mine that HAD bids in it...

And they are clearing out the bidding histories on the active auctions. Who knows how many accounts they deleted to try and cover their tracks.

Well I am off to sell my luck charms at costco now. :)

Nope, thats a another name change for someone else......51chevytruck is still there. So is tomcat. But its definitely a name change , cause is shows up in past auctions too and I never saw that name before today.

It is the same person as 51 chevytruck then. Same email address associated with both accounts.

And right along with it, and email telling me my won auction has been updated and i need to go pay for it.

Umm....yeah.....ok......I'll do that.

Great job you guys!

Do we know who is behind this scam? Any idea where they are based out of? The reason I ask is that zoogboo had a shill user set up with the name "5_chevytruck". I do not remember exactly what the digit was after the 5, but this is just something that crossed my mind when reading this thread. Probably just coincidence but I thought I'd share...

Again, great job rooting out these scumbags...Thanks!

Thats kind of what i thought Max. Using up bids they had I suppose, but I guess I would be concerned about even getting the items if I won.

I thought it crazy too. I think some were leftover high bidders from before the article came out but some are actively bidding!

I mean even if you are using up bids you are crazy to give these people more money if you win anything and then have to pay for the won auction...

I saw yet another bot on there yesterday with just a number for a screen name in the won auctions section. Probably one of the old bots with a new name since it didn't look like any auctions closed yesterday.

Also they are doctoring the heck out of their closed auction data to try and cover their tracks...at one point my screen name showed up as a bidder on an auction where I hadn't even bid on it...unfortunately they changed it again before I was able to get a firebug capture as I was at work...

And yet they still try and claim legitimacy...unreal...

Their claim is that the email address in question (4biddinbids@charter.net) that I saw the owner using to bid on the site with is no longer theirs and that it was only temporary and they gave it up about 3 weeks ago...

How is it then that this email address is the exact email address that the Paypal account you use to make payment to their site is linked to?? And I just made that payment earlier in the evening this past Sunday.

So just more lies and attempted cover ups.

Additionally, they continue to try and attack me. They even went so far as to post on my personal facebook page regarding my status where I said I had a good birthday and won some good auctions. Their responses:

Forbiddinbids Live Bet you lost a few and blamed them for being cheats...have talked to all admins. They all say the same.
