QuiBids is a stay far away company!

 I joined Quibids so I might test their service before spending any money by using a special tracking that was provided by Quibids to ask others to join their service and I would get 25 Free Bids. Well when it comes to QuiBids, NOTHING IS FREE.

I contacted the Live Person Window on Quibids web site and asked why have I not received my free bids, each time I was given an answer that was so far off it led me to believe I am talking to a Bot.

Several times when trying to get information using their chat system, the answers did not even come close to my question. When I thought I was being played I asked a non relative question, and in return received a canned reply regarding how to get started. If this a real live person, then Quibids needs to train them better.

I sent in a support ticket to try and get an answer, once again a canned letter came back to me from Amanda, QuiBids Support. I had to ask again a direct question: (see below)

“You never even addressed the problem, just another canned response from you – Go on, give it a try and answer my complaint about your live person”

Only then did I get a real reply, “If you are referring to our live chat, those are real people. I am also a real person. Is there anything I can help you with today?”

wheeeeew! It took 2 days and allot of back and forth, for this reason their support gets a grade of D.

I asked her where are the 25 Free Bids!  Her answer was: (see below)

“All users become eligible for promotional bids once they have purchased a bid package. Once you have purchased a bid package, let me know and as a measure of good faith, I will add the amount of bids you would have received from the link.”

Look at this above, Free is not Free at all, YOU MUST BUY first. What a SCAM

I was asked if I needed anything else – it seemed like she wanted to get rid of me, I replied (see below)

No, I will not need anymore information, your only concern is to get me to give you my credit card, which is not going to happen. IMO you company is a “stay far away company” and I will write my review in ScamWatchCenter.com very soon.

I informed Quibids that I was NOT going to use their services and their response why?  Can you believe them asking Why?  What a JOKE! So see below my response to WHY?

I was the asked by Quibids (see below)

Is there any reason in particular you are looking to deactivate your account? We’d love to hear what you think about our site and why you would like to delete your Quibids account.

Can you believe that, what does she think I am writing about, can she be that clueless, unbelievable.

My final reply (see below)

Yes there is a reason, I think your company is a scam – When I used the special link to get 25 free bids, nowhere did it state that I had to buy bids first, for that reason alone your company is a scam. If you were to change your mind, at this time I would refuse it.

RECAP: I tried for several days to find just ONE good thing to say about Quibids, I cannot. The concept, their policies, their way of doing business gives them an F Rating.

I personally would NOT spend one dime with these crooks

Quibids Review Is It a Scam

http://richinwriters.com/quibids-scam-review/

Penny Auctions my personal opinion is don’t get involved with them unless you have at least 75% of the retail price of the product you are seeking to purchase. Another thing is before you get into a website like Quibids.com make sure you READ the terms and conditions and also understand what you are getting yourself into.

Penny Auctions work off ignorance (in my opinion) and they are also  very time consuming. The reason why i say you should have at least 75% of the money of the retail value of the item you wish to purchase is because the penny auctions in many ways are all about backing up your bid with your commitment. You lose in Penny Auctions when you are not willing to commit to a particular item.

Do you follow me here? Because if you don’t you will lose all of your money in a penny auction very quickly. When getting into this type of endeavor you’ve got to have some heart and also have some money, again i recommend 75% of the value of the item you seek. Another thing to keep note of is that with Penny Auction sites the house always wins.

Example: Three guys fighting for a PS3 console these three men are all serious and only one person can win. Each of these three men are willing to pay over $100 for this PS3 and they do, they each use up $120 in credits to try and win this PS3 console but only one person wins. So again this where the penny auction site wins all of their money. This is also the reason why most people never win ANYTHING in Penny Auction Sites. Again the house has to make their profit when getting involved in these penny auctions never forget that.

QuiBids.com Reviews – Is QuiBids a Scam?

 http://reviewopedia.com/workathome/quibids-com-reviews-is-quibids-a-scam/

Quibids.com is the largest penny auction website currently operating in the United States. Penny auctions have been around for awhile, but have only recently gotten lots of attention from people outside of the penny auction community.

Penny auction websites attract people to them by promising expensive, big ticket items at unbelievably low prices – for example, Quibids shows a new iPad, which retails at $499 for the most basic model, selling for $22.54.  But this winning bid of $22.54 is misleading.  This isn’t the truth of how much it costs to win that iPad.

The way penny auctions work is that you are only able to bid a single penny at any time during the auction.  However, at Quibids.com, you must purchase each 1 cent bid for 60 cents.  So an iPad that retails for $499 but was won for the grand total of  2,254 one cent bids (or $22.54) which actually cost 60 cents each means that the iPad just sold for $1352.40.

Though the person who wins the item usually has paid less than retail for what they have received, citing $22.54 as the winning bid is extremely misleading.

so…you get lured into “buying” bids/ I bought 45 bids for $25. I then stated bidding on a ipad that was going up in 1 Cent increments and wasn’t getting anywhere with that, so I started bidding on a $15 gift card for iTunes. But I ran out of bids. So I stupidly went to buy more bids, which cost me another $25…and concentrated on getting the iTunes card. I still didn’t win it… so then a little window comes up and says “Sorry you didn’t win this, would you like to buy it for $2.57″? So I thought…OK, I’ll buy it. Even though an itunes certificate can be transferred into your itunes account for free (just with a transaction number) they charged me $1.90 in shipping/handling charges. So, in the end, my $15 iTunes card ended up costing me over $53.00. STAY AWAY FROM THIS SITE!!! I was lured onto it by them showing me all these great deals people had won, but I don’t believe than ANYONE actually won a prize worth over $200 for less than $5. What a horrible rip off.

 Now after reading all this and you still join – my only though is “What an Idiot”

Watch Out for Per Annum Money Snatchers

Let me explain here what a Per Annum Money Snatchers or PAMS for short. PAMS are companies who have you sign up for a year at a time and WITHOUT asking you they just reuse your Credit Card on file and SNATCH your money when least expected. PAMS are THEIVES and they are hoping you will not bother to investigate why this purchased showed up on your bill.

Here is how it happens,  it’s so suttle you do not even realized it happened to you. You find a service on line with a per annum fee, you decide after a few months your life has changed and you just stop using it, expecting it will expire and become a distant memory. When all of a sudden that distant memory jumps out at you when you see a large fee on your Credit Card Statement. Now you have just been hit by PAMS.

Well it happened to me again today –  by ARCHIVES.COM

DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION

I was once a customer here, but when it was time to renew I decided the 80.00 they wanted was to high. I sent an email asking for a pre-member distcount to continue services for another year and Linda Pagillo turned me dowm FLAT.

A few months later I get an email asking us to come back with a discount and serveral more over the following months. I ignored them until today. I replied to their email for their 59.95 offer and offered 30.00 to see if they would negociate, they failed agin. Their anwser ws NO. I don not like doing business with company’s who think they are God Almighty and want to stand and make YOU come to them as though they are doing you a favor.

My answer is NO to Linda Pagillo and  http://www.dnsstuff.com/

Their rating for customer satisfaction with me is a F

 It’s commonly believed that picking the right niche is especially important when you want to make money online. After all, a site with a well defined niche allows you to easily produce content that targets a specific community or market.

This eventually allows you to more effectively sell products, services or ads. When it comes to affiliate marketing and the building of blogs that make money, a distinctive niche is beneficial in several ways.

In order to understand the overwhelming emphasis on niche markets, let’s take a quick look at why they are so important in the first place.

Selling Products:

Most newcomers believe that more products, means more sales, that is not true at all. The more types of products your store carries, the further down your site will be in the Search Engines. The site will be indexed by the content on your pages, so if the Search Engines do not understand what your focus is, how they are going to list you properly.

Big retailers or market leaders may dominate because of their brand and competitive pricing but niche businesses win when it comes to niche product variety, exclusivity and depth.

BBB EXTORTION TACTICS

We belong to the BBB and the BBB Online Reliability Program and have agreed to the BBB Code of Practices. Don’t let others fool you by placing the BBB Logo on their site, be sure to click the logo, and it should go to that Company’s information on the BBB, if it does not the Company is a fake.

THATS WHAT WE USE TO SAY – (above) Not Anymore



September 30, 2010

We are NO LONGER willing to PAY the BBB to get a GOOD RATING. We had an A rating until we decided their charges were too high in this bad economy, we were then DROPPED to an F Rating, this is how the BBB does business. They sent us a nasty letter in July that we MUST take off any logo’s etc. pointing to them. This LOGO REMOVAL was for the same reason, WE DID NOT WANT TO PAY THEIR FEE. We are surely GOOD enough to display their LOGO a long as WE ARE PAYING FOR IT. The BBB is NOT interested in helping the Public, the BBB ONLY INTEREST is THE MONEY!

I did not believe it when I heard this years ago, that you HAVE TO BUY YOURSELF a GOOD RATING. Once the BBB has their claws in you and you decide to step back, they go for the KILL.

Go to Google and type in ANVES.COM SCAM – and guess what comes UP – NOTHING BAD, that’s because ANVES is a GREAT Company – Now Try BBB SCAM About 673,000 results – Click Here WHO DESERVES A “F” RATING? The BBB Does

Don’t believe me, lets take a look at Doba, the BBB is giving them an A+ Rating more info and they have hundreds of complaints since 2003, but remember they are an accredited company, in other words THEY PAID THE MONEY FOR THEIR A+ RATING and we have nine complaints since 1995 and we have an F Rating, why is this? Because WE DID NOT PAY, We had an A+ Rating, when we were PAYING TO BE an Accredited Company.

ONLY AFTER LAW SUIT THREAT

October 4, 2010

Only after three phone calls and two faxes threatening the BBB with Extortion & Defamation did the BBB decide to change our Rating from “F” to a “B” rating, notice that they did NOT put it back to an “A” like it was when we were PAYING for it.

The BBB probably thinks this ends the problem and the threat of a Law Suit against them. it does not, I think its clear that if I did not pursue this issue, it would have continued. The BBB must think that have so much muscle that they can do tortes acts and not be held responsible. I think we should make an example of them in the courts.

NOW FOR THE FACTS

We have been working with business computers and servers since the early 80′s – In 1995 we began to design an international network infrastructure that can host an abundance of modern technologies.

We have made the appropriate arrangements with many wholesale drop ship distributors to incorporate the drop ship ideas into their existing system so we could provide them with an avenue to sell individual items one at a time and still make an accumulated profit.

We now have many drop shippers that we provide to our customers and we are rapidly adding more and more to our active database as time goes on.

Our ultimate goal is to offer you, our customer more products at better prices than anyone else can. The major advantage is that we maintain your products for you, and this provides you more time to focus on marketing and selling.
Below is what Worldwide Brands has to say about us:

” Anves will build and populate you an affordable drop ship web site which can handle 1.5 million wholesale products. You decide the products and add your own sources of products. They provide the web site and hosting but don’t make money from the product transactions. Learn more at Anves.com ”

We do not make any commissions from the products you sell; YOU buy the products directly from the drop shippers themselves. Most of our competitors are trying to copy what we have done and are merely reselling the products to you from the drop shippers, and YOU are paying more, and making a lot less money.
 
We build web sites, we do not sell products, and therefore, we do not care from whom you buy products. You can use our recommended drop shippers or use your drop shippers, you can even make and sell your own products and add them to your web site in minutes.

As we add more drop shippers to our system you will be notified by our Newsletter and have the opportunity to have these products added to your web site at NO CHARGE. Our competitors will charge you every time you add products to your web site.
 
We give you 100 percent control over your web site. You can actually ftp into your web site and delete every single file if you wanted to, I suggest that you do not do this, but you do have that kind of access. Others will not give you any ftp access to your site at all; they are just reselling space from other ISP’s.
 
We own and maintain our network within our 12,000 square foot block building. We have a climate controlled data center located in the lower level. Our competitors lease server space from others around the USA and have no control over what server you are added to and how many other web sites are also on those servers.
 
We have 98 templates for you to use, or we will build you a one of a kind custom built web site for you with your choice of colors, graphics, flash and even music. Others who are using the term custom web sites are merely templates and you, or they do not have enough control over the site in order to make a true custom web site

Review web sites are mainly designed for personal gain and not really to help the consumer. With thousands of websites claiming to be honest they are really not at all, they are hoping you click on one of many affiliate  links and buy their service or product so the reviewer can get a nice big fat commission. So their reviews are based on monetary gain and not actual editorial reviews.

What I do if I land on a site, and I decide I want to buy I go to a different PC and directly to that and buy, I do not want some affiliate to get a part of my hard earned money. I take it one step. I first find out what the commission rate is, contact the web site owner and ask for that commission off the top. Now I saved, not some so called professional reviewer.

I “ANVES” challenge Review Sites to our services by offering them a complete web site for their use to sell products, etc. and to give an honest review. I have only had one that asked for a site, that is TheWebReviewer.

If a Review Site does NOT actively participate in the company’s they are reviewing, then how can their review have any merritt’s at all, in my opinion they do not give the consumer any benefits what so ever.

Some Reviewers are selective in who they wish to represent which degrades the opinions of that Review Site. If the Review Site does NOT review or at least attempt to review ALL companies in that industry then their reviews can not be and are not accurate, therefore their web site is a SCAM. That’s how you can determine a SCAM site from a real Review Web Site.

There is nothing wrong making some money being an affiliate, but say so by telling users, these are your partners or affiliates, but Not a reviewer of the sites, that’s just plain wrong and gives the consumer a false sense of security.
