On Friday August 28th, I found this post on Yahoo Answers:
ÂÂis it actually something that works or is a one big scam and this goes the same for other sites like that?
I was just browsing Google when I found this question and quite a few other questions about ipennybid.com
It looks like they are a new site as their domain was registered about 2 months ago, but they seem to be advertising all over facebook (which is how I found them) so I’m not sure if I believe they are using bots to control their auctions.
They don’t seem to have that many good reviews, which is a pity as I have won an ipod touch.
I am currently waiting for delivery of it, they emailed me and asked me to confirm my ID by scanning in my drivers license so I am quite optimistic about getting it.
If you look closely at all the negative attention ipennybid is getting, you can see it’s all being generated by pennyauctionwatch.com. And even more interestingly I found this blog: http:// bidcactusisascam .blogspot. com
IN RESPONSE TO BRAD: What are you talking about a Russian payment system?
I used PayPal to pay for my bids and I’m sure they are using a payment processor called plimus which is based in San Jose, California.
Source(s):My own knowledgeAnswerer 2: Meaning no disrespect to the previous poster, but faxing a copy of your drivers licence to an overseas site (that uses a russsian payment system?) seems like an open invitation to have your identity STOLEN. Actually: If you paid by credit card AND faxed your licence info I’d recommend you cancel the card immediately….
Speaking of Ipennybid.com, They want to sue me for defamation. I did not call them a scam anywhere I only asked the question and said that it looks like they might have shill bidders. If you have won an item on IpennyBid please let us know we are only trying to find out if they are legitimate, same goes for any other penny auction site mentioned in this blog and forum. It’s also quite interesting and scary if Ipennybid really asks for a scan of winning bidders driver’s licenses.
Here’s the blog that the user of Ipennybid referred to:
I have never been convicted of any crime. This post on blogspot is libelous and slandering me and Penny Auction Watch.
I left a comment and they deleted it.
I’ve set out to provide an outlet for discussion of penny auction sites and to determine which ones are legit. Gertrude also falsely accuses Penny Auction Watch of being owned by a conglomeration of 4 penny auction sites.Â They also lay claim that they spent two days bidding on a MacBook on BidCactus. I’ve just confirmed with BidCactus that they have never even had a MacBook auction.
Penny Auction Watch is NOT owned by any penny auction sites and the owner of penny auction watch does not own a penny auction site.
Anyway,Â here’s the libelousÂ blog by “Gertrude” as found on bidcactusisascam.blogspot.com:
BidCactus.com and PennyAuctionWatch.com is a SCAM
Bidcactus.com is using SHILLBIDDERS to bid on their auctions in order to SCAM their customers, oh and PennyAuctionWatch.com is helping them!
They took my money which totaled $850 and I didn’t win a thing. I was constantly bidding on a MacBook pro for about TWO DAYS. There must have been about 50 different bidders in the space of 5 minutes all placing single random bids at one point during my two day nightmare.

PennyAuctionWatch.com owner is a convicted fraudsterI have just received some interesting information from a friend that I thought I would share with you.Apparently, the main owner of PennyAuctionWatch.com has been convicted of defrauding people by using “phishing” techniques.He was convicted by a court in California approximately 3 years ago and has since been released from a federal prison.
If you have an account on PennyAuctionWatch.com I would seriously recommend deleting it or changing your passwords. The owner can see your password and will most likely use it to login to any other online accounts you have, especially Internet banking.
Need proof? Check this out: http://whois.domaintools.com/pennyauctionwatch.com
The domain was created on the 26th May 2009, and was registered in the name of a company called “Domains by Proxy, Inc.”
Why would anyone create a domain that is completely anonymous? – That’s right, to SCAM people. They think they cannot be traced with this anonymous domain name.
I will not rest until the owners of this site cease what they are doing.
I am in the process of diligently gathering information on this website and its owners. I have accumulated quite a high amount of information by accessing their domain ownership and contacting their server hosts.
I will post more information soon about my progress on taking down these owners. I will also be looking for people to submit into a class action lawsuit with me against these owners who commit this evil fraud upon unsuspecting people while trying to give the impression they’re an impartial watchdog service.
It’s WRONG, and you WILL be taken DOWN.
I have the patience, intelligence, connections and funds to do so and it’s just a matter of time until you are brought to justice.Posted by Gertrude at 10:14 PM 4 commentsLabels: california, convicted, fraud, fresno, pennyauctionwatch.com
Although I can’t say for a fact it almost seems as if this blogspot blogÂ Â “Exposing Penny Auction Watch” was created by a penny auction site that has been mentioned on Penny Auction Watch.
I will be taking further action.
Comments & Suggestions are welcome. Thank you.
That’s why online pharmacies is becoming more pop over the last years. Well-known are remedies which are used to reduce inflammation caused by inflammation of the skeletal muscle etc. There were only few examples. Did somebody tell you about canadian generic Viagra? Maybe you yet know about the question. Sexual disfunction can be a result of a physical condition. Even when it has a physical cause, psychological problems can make the disorder worse. Sex drive problems are so commonly a product of how you feel that there is slightly to that “headache” saying after all.
