India based penny auction script provider Sonik Technologies has started a new penny auction “watchdog” site, WatchPennyAuctionScams.com, on it they call us a scam along with a few other penny auction information sites, numerous penny auctions and one penny auction script provider.
They claim that Penny Auction Watch is owned by a collective of penny auction sites and one penny auction script provider, we’ve told you before and we shouldn’t even have to tell you again, we don’t own any penny auction site nor does any penny auction site own Penny Auction Watch.
Ironically enough, WatchPennyAuctionScams.com has an article on shill bidding, yet they fail to mention that they are providing scripts for sale with the shill bidding capability on their site AuctionWebsiteScript.com.
How do we know that Sonik Technologies Pvt Ltd, India with AuctionWebsiteScript.com sells scripts with bot bidders/shill bidders?
- See Sonik Technologies’ AuctionWebsiteScript.com press release from 9/18/09:
“10. Robot Module
Robot Module to Bid Automatically using an advance algo. will put impression of thousands users live”

2. And then, see our e-mail correspondence with Sonik Technologies/AuctionWebsiteScript.com from April 2010:
“Hello! I n your new penny auction software solutions I just read a press release from April 10th, can you tell me more of what you provide in your new version, do you have an investment protector feature like fake users I can use? Thanks alot!”
Sonik Technologies/ AuctionWebsiteScript.com’s answer: Yes there is Robot module to prevent losses this is optional module.
3. And lastly, to check and see if they are still providing scripts with shill bidding bots, we just contacted Sonik Technologies’ via their live chat, a few minutes before 10:46am Monday(IST)/ 1:10 AM EST, read the chat conversation:
Now, how do we know that SonikTechnologies Pvt Ltd/ AuctionWebsiteScript.com is behind this new “watchdog” site?
First, we took a look at their source code.
They have Google ads, so you will see their Google publisher ID: it’s pub-9628384545247977:
We put their publisher ID into Adsspy and look what we found: AuctionWebsiteScript.com, CloneSwoopo.com (nothing’s there) and PennyAuctionScriptPro.com (redirect to AWS)
Also take a look at the server IP addresses for the two sites, 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168, both are hosted by The Planet.
From WatchPennyAuctionScams.com’s article on shill bidding:
“Shill Bidding, intentionally playing with the reliability and money of the consumer, is purely illegal. We opposed strongly the shill bidding and want to clear any misconception having in your mind. Actually it is not still clear to the various users as what is shill bidding and how it works and they are losing their money over such scammers.”
Previously we have told our readers about Sonik Technologies and how they distribute scripts with an automated shill bidding option, now it’s clear that they’re attempting to discredit us because we have exposed them and various penny auction sites using their software. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black here. Anyone that has e-mailed them and asked them about the bot scripts they sell, as well as read their press releases would have found this out, we did.

They then go on to provide a list of sites they claim to be “Real Blacklisted Scammers,” according to this we’re included and we’re “playing with the consumers!”
“Rest websites which was included in our research, I am going to blacklisted then on behalf of our expert’s analyze and reviews. I found some sites promoting other scam sites and pertaining itself as the penny auction watchdog like as PAW (Penny Auction Watch.com). You can see clearly the sponsor of this website and can search the scams done by their sponsors. Here is the list of the blacklisted sites for you to escape these scammers –

In one blog post they even go on to assert that BidCactus uses shill bidders to bid on their auctions yet BidCactus was just recently audited by Ernst & Young (One of the “Big Four” auditors). E&Y’s report shows that they have found no shill bidding or automated bidding on BidCactus.com and have verified that they have real users that have received items.
