I just got an email from Penny Target apologizing for their recent website issues. The problem is they included the email addresses of all their members in the header of the email. I don't know about you guys but I don't want my email address distributed to other bidders. Especially those of you that use your username in your email, Penny Target had just given everyone a direct line to you. Thoughts?

With all due respect, isn't that the point of this forum? To inform people so they can make wise decisions?

No problem and I do understand your point. The only reason I noticed was it took a while to scroll down through all of the names to read the message on my iPhone.

I noticed that as well, but wasn't going to say anything just yet.

"notyours@pennytarget.com"
"onemoretime@pennytarget.com"
"jansays@pennytarget.com"

Anyone ever bid against these names on PT?

That was the first thing I noticed when I got the email. I only bid on the site once, before they went down, and haven't been back because they still have such major problems and a crappy script. I HOPE those user names were not bidding on live auctions..

Exactly the point! :welcome:!

I believe that the more penny auction bidders that come together and post their honest experiences, exposing the shady-scam penny auction sites, the less and less shady-scam sites will stop being the majority in the penny auction industry. Stand with me.

I would like pennytarget to address this! I put 50 bids or so on the TV auction the other night against notyours. Diva74 jumped in and I backed out cause I had some family issues to take care of. I went back to check and saw Diva74 won the auction. So is notyours a shill bidder that kept me from winning the TV? I have also went against onemoretime. SO are these shill bidders by pennytarget? Someone explain and PT please address this! Thanks, flykel
Stay Thirsty my Friends!!! :cheers2:
