Complaint / review text:
Good Will Of Orange County, California owns this website that other Good wills across the country list their donations on. They auction off all their donations to the highest bidder.
Unfortunately the seem to be a bit greedy, "yes, greedy on their donations." There system is simply, display a current bid say $ 8.00. You place your bid, you watch your bid and than someone may or may not outbid you.
But all I know is that displayed bid is not what it seems. After you place a bid the computer system automatically generates you a message telling you, you have been out bid. Even if you increase your bids back to back and the limit of bidders is low, the system is set to play with your head and use the power of psychology in hopes that you increase your bids.
Sort of like a "shill" click on the link above to view more information. The point is your thought to think someone outbid you. But what is reality?"IS THE SYSTEM SETUP TO AUTO BID?" Or is someone on the other side deliberately increasing the bids pretending he/she is out bidding you.
I bid on on several products and all went good at first. But after the third auction and 20 after it seemed like as soon as I bid someone had already bid before me. But these bids are not shown on the item until I bid. Therefor it is a scam, sham on you Good Will...
