I HAVE PAID INTO bIDRACK $455 ON MERCHANDISE THAT IS FRADULLANT. i RECEIVED A WEBCAM THAT NEVER WORKED, i BOUGHT 2 bluetooth headsets that did not work. Then when i was bidding noone else was bidding on this item but me then all of a sudden 20 people must have shown up to get that purse bid up to the Hundreds. The same bag they said 20 mins ago sold for $3.03. I like an idiot continued to buy bids and my credit Card was charged over and over again. I cant think of a company that has scanned so many people. Even with the 55' TV's no one bid on it and way back then it sold for $1.42. 1 hour later I bid on it and all of a sudden people from all over were bidding on it. I'v lost way more than $55.0 if i really sat down and added it with defective mdse and overcharging. you win 5 bids for 2 cnts and they charge you a processing fee of $4.99. the bids only cost $3.00.. Give me a break

  • Get your money back - I did! here's my story:

    1) Bidrack.com is a thinly disguised internet gambling operation, which is illegal in the United States. Although they claim that they are an auction web site, a participant has to purchase bids (chips) for $ .60, less or more depending on additional discount that can be used to bid (gamble) on items, by placing bids on the item. Each bid increases the auction value of the item by $ .01, and extends the time by 10 seconds. When all the participants exhaust their bids or give up, the holder of the last bid wins the item. Many items of interest to most people are retailing for $500.00 to $2000.00, but are usually “won” for around $200 to $300 or more. It becomes quickly obvious that the company (bidrack.com) obtains $18,000 (each dollar is worth 100 x $.60/bid or $60.00) or more for these items, way out of line for a normal internet auction site like eBay, which normally collects around 20% of the purchase price at most.
    2) I have contacted bidrack via e-mail Alex Graham (alex.graham@nomorerack.com) requesting my money back, but was turned down. I have then informed my bank (Chase) that I feel I have been defrauded of my money, as I have not initially realized that this was an illegal gambling operation (bidrack even attempted to hide their real business intent/name by claiming they are “mens/womens clothing stores” according to the Chase statement (print out of transactions) I have received, which is not surprising considering their real illegal intent).

    3) I have informed Chase rep that I felt that Chase was at fault by clearly being an accomplice to the illegal gambling operation of bidrack.com by processing their payments (illegal under federal and State of California statues), and that they may be exposed to lawsuits and potential penalties exacted by Federal Trade Commission.

    4) Chase Consumer Claim Department rep said that while he understood what was going on, he could not refund my money since I have agreed to the terms of bidrack.com when I registered with the website (which I did, albeit unknowingly, as I didn't pay attention to their "agreement when I registered).

    5) I have stated to the Chase rep that I would be contacting Federal Trade Commission about bidrack.com and Chase Bank illegal activities (I haven't done that yet).
    6) The next day, I have received a complete refund from Chase of all my money (change of heart?).

    I hope this helps!
