What is SwipeAuctions.com?
Swipeauctions.com is a penny auction site where you pay $159.00 up front and get 300 bids. Swipeauctions tries to sign you up here and on other mirror sites. When you look at the page, you will get a video on “police auctions” which don’t have anthing to do with their site. Then, you need to go through a jungle of ads comparing Swipeauctions to eBay. To go on, it asks you for your name, address, etc. You will be asked to pull out your VISA on the next page if you put in your details. The question is, should you keep your VISA in your wallet?

I hope all these resources help you out. In my opinion, the whole penny auction concept needs to be re-evaluated. Charging the price for the item (which looks cheap) and charging about .50 for each bid actually makes the item expensive.
Here is a simple math example on an item that sells for $10.00
$10.00 is equal to 1000 bids at a 1 cent rise per bid
1000 bids at .50 a bid is $500.00
So, the price really is $510.00 ($500.00 for bids and $10.00 for item)
That is one hefty profit!
Say, if any of you want to pay me $5.00 plus BIDS (at .50 a bid) for a $10.00 Wal-Mart card, I will deliver it next day UPS for you.
