BEWARE Bill Ramsey Auctions!!
I haven't seen this online auction site mentioned, so I figured that I'd warn anyone else who may stumble across them.
Today they held an online auction for a local arcade that closed. I watched as most of the items went for prices similar to those I've seen on Craigslist, as well as some that seemed even higher. I bid on - and won - two items. I was excited because I got a good deal on one of the items that I won.
However, when I went to my account, I noticed that the item appeared with a flag saying "YOU MAY HAVE WON". The auction was advertised as "online only" and I watched the ticker count all the way to zero before the auction closed. I know I wasn't sniped, since the auction would extend for 3 extra minutes any time someone tried to make a bid within the last three minutes. There were several previous signs that this auction site might be shady, so I became nervous.
As of 3 hours later, I still hadn't heard anything. Then, an email appeared which read:
After several discussions with the seller post auction and due to situations that are beyond our control, it is in the best interest to cancel this auction.
That's right. They canceled the auction AFTER all of the bidding was over. Complete BS. Avoid BILL RAMSEY AUCTIONS at all costs.
