Online auction sites are a great place to shop and
have some fun while you do it. The problem with online auction sites is the scam factor. There are a lot of
unsavory people online that are there for the sole purpose of ripping you off. We have tried just about every
type of auction out there and our favorite is Auctionresource.org.
Legit Or Not?
sad but very true that some online auction sites are a scam. Finding the right online auction sites means you
have to do some homework to make sure that you are dealing with a legit site.
Legit of not legit that is the question. Finding
the answer is as easy as opening up your web browser and typing in the name of the site you are considering and
the word scam. This search will bring up unsolicited consumer reviews.
Using consumer reviews can be really helpful in
determining whether a site is legit or not as long as you temper them with the knowledge that there are sore
losers in the world. A lot of times someone will write a review that may not be 100% honest because they may
have not been able to win anything.
Of course if you come across nothing but bad
reviews about whether a site is legitimate or not than you should probably avoid the site just to be safe. There
really is not much difference between the online auction sites. They all offer pretty much the same
At most of the sites if you do not win the auction
than you do not lose any money except at the penny auction sites.

Beezid.com - Beezid.com is a website that is a penny auction site.

Quibids.com - My issue with Quibids.com is not that you lose money as soon as
you bid because well it is part of the reality of penny auctions. It is that they do not list any customer
contact information this is a big no-no at least for me. Not being able to contact customer service at will really bugs
me. It makes me feel like they have something to hide and it also makes me feel that they will not
necessarily be as responsive as they should be. Click here to read the

Copart.com - Copart.com now
auctions vehicles off as well as car parts. The vehicles are not in tip top shape and typically come from

Foreclosure.com Review - Foreclosure.com as a site overall is easy to use. There is a lot
of information to digest on the site and some of the stuff is a bit hard for me to digest. Of course the primary
goal of the site is to convince people to join the site. So making the site as flashy as possible to get your
attention is par for the course. Click here to read the entire
