Online Auction scams


Dealdash Review - Is a Scam?

The review shows that this is another penny auction site. The site was launched in February of 2009 and is billed as the longest running penny auction site in the industry. The website offers items for fractions of the cost. You purchase bids up front that you use to bid on the items. There are some deals to be had at just about any penny auction site, although before bidding at any auction, you should read our free Auction Tutorial Guide to reduce mistakes and secure the lowest price possible.

All penny auction sites require that you purchase bids up front the cost of the bids vary from site to site and largely depend on the types of items you will be bidding on and the site itself. At the cost of the bids are sixty cents per bid which is right at the medium of industry standards.

Dealdash Review - What Does Offer?

There are so many penny auction sites literally hundreds so choosing a penny auction site for me at least comes down to two factors. What does the site offer me to gain my business? And What types of inventory does the site have? does not offer any freebies! Typically a penny auction site will throw you a few bids (sometimes as many as 50) just for registering. It is a way for you to see what the site is about and maybe win some more free bids to bid with but offers you nothing for registering.

I don't like that is not willing to work for my business by giving something up. I don't want to judge based solely on that factor so I took a look at the inventory thinking perhaps they don't offer any freebies because their inventory is so outstanding.

The inventory at seems to me to be the same inventory I found at many of the other penny auction sites.

What I Like has been around for a while which tells me that there is at least a strong possibility that this site is legit. Most of the reviews that I read were positive although I do not put a lot of trust in what other people have to say about a site you find a lot of negative reviews from people that did not win and a lot of positive reviews from people that did.

I like that you do not necessarily have to lose your bids. At you have the opportunity to buy an item at retail if you lose an auction and your bids can be applied to the cost. Of course no one really wants to pay retail but if it is an item you have had your eye on for a while and know that the cost is reasonable you can try to win it and if you fail at least you can apply your bids.

Overall, the Dealdash reviews show this to be a legit site and not a scam, however most people prefer using a service like for finding deals online.
