Is The Bid Shak a legit penny auction? Has ANYONE received their wins?

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 have not received a thing yet. I have won 11 auctions. I emailed the site a couple of times, once asking if they will still be shipping in the time frame of 15-18 business days even though they had maybe 5 bidders winning items at the time, so with such a small customer base would they be able to ship sooner? Whoever it was that replied said they'd see about shipping a bit sooner for me.....still nothing and that was a couple weeks ago that the email was replied.

Thank you so much BigHumpDaddy. I really appreciate your support over the years and am so sorry that you too have been scammed by penny auctions enough to cause you to quit bidding. A lot of people have, and they have good reason to, too. It's just a shame.

TheBidShak: has yet to ship items that were won by a number of winners.

Has anyone else here won anything there?

15-18 business days is 3 weeks to a month. That's a pretty long shipping timeframe. It means that the site operator cannot afford to dropship the item immediately. If they start deviating from that and exceeding it, I think that's a very worrying sign of cash flow troubles.

I have not been able to pay for any of my winning auctions, I have won 12 items. I am pretty sure something fishy is going on here and would not recommend anyone purchase bids. They have a "problem" since my credit card transaction would be under 10$ to pay for each item. I understand that and offered to pay for them on one transaction, but no response. Today when I tried it I got a different error, but nevetheless, the only response ive gotten from the support team is that they are "working on it".

Same here. I won 3 auctions with the 3 free bids they give you. I tried to pay for the auction but keep on receiving weird error messages. Although communication with the owners is there, like you said kbrouder, they keep on saying that they are working on it.
