The Penny Auction Watch℠ Consumer Fraud Complaint Reporting Directory
Penny auction sites have been ripping consumers off, some shill, others don’t ship.
For any problems you may have with a penny auction site we suggest you tell us about them so we can investigate and report on them, but we’d also like to suggest that you report if you really think or know for sure that you were scammed, i.e. found evidence of shilling, non-receipt of items, or another business complaint, you should also report the problem.
