    Cheap iPads on penny bids.

    You see many of these sites popping up where they sell items 95percent off. There is even an Ad flashing on this forum about cheap iPads,just be aware. Just read about one on a TV site touting how great they are,dont beleive it. I found this small print at the bottom of the page all hidden away.

    Those sites make tons of money. I registered for beezid.com a while back and discovered what they are really up to. The bids really do start off very low (most likely a penny) and each bid raises the price one cent. The catch is you pay for each bid, which run you a dollar a bid unless you shell out hundreds to buy them in bulk. An iPad selling for $30 that started at a penny scored 2,999 bids. Even though the iPad sold for $30 and it cost them $729 (assuming a 32 gig wifi/3G) they brought in $2,999. Major profit there.

    If people used their brains, it is clear that there is no way in hell you can buy a hot selling product like the iPad for 95% off. In my personal opinion, the forum should not allow those ads because they are clearly misleading.

    But, I am sure this forum is earning a few dollars from the ads so they will remain. I think they are dishonest and ever so misleading, though.

    You are correct Bob,matter of fact there are a couple of class action suits going on right now in California,plus the Cal AG are trying to run down another who was using a post office box for his office. I think this site should take the add down or put up a message telling the forum members to be aware.

    Y'all are absolutely correct. I got my iPad off a penny site. Worst decide I could ever make I will never do it again. I am thankfully for my iPad, I got super lucky. I don't believe in luck, but if you actually win something for less than retail on a penny site it's lucky

    The ad is there now as I type,its a google ad,I clicked on it and it took me to their web page which is QuiBids. The ads rotate after the Zagg banner and the Capital One Credit card.
