PENNY AUCTIONS - ZIINGA A SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I won a ipod nano 2gb on the site ziinga with the free bids they give you
i paid the money i won it for and the shipping fee
and sent in the auth form and they said it should be sent out soon
wait for the purchasing dept to send an email
saying they shipped it
after a month of
waiting and getting no reply from the purchasing dept
they emailed me saying this:


This promotion is applicable for customers who have a membership with
Ziinga.com.

I have checked your account and it shows that you do not have a membership.

If you would like to request for a refund for the amount you paid for the
product, please send your request to info@ziinga.com.

Regards,
Purchasing


IF I WOULD LIKE A REFUND?
ARE THEY KIDDING
OF COURSE I WANT MY MONEY BACK
THEY NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT HAVING TO BE A PAID MEMBER TO GET A ITEM
WHY WOULD THEY GIVE FREE BIDS THEN ?
THIS ZIINGA SITE IS A SCAM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An intelligent person would never have been sucked into thinking they could get something of value for next to nothing.

Maybe you should try quibids next.

Unauthorized money was taken from my account. My credit card has been billed twice in two months for $92.00 each. When I contacted the site Ask-Ziinga.com that I have not agreed to any membership they told me that I am bought the iPhone of them and it has agreed to membership. I have never bought or got the iPhone from them.

I had the same problem, my card details and bank clearance wasnt enough and they wanted scans of my credit card etc, how can they say they cant send the auction item without all the extra scanned info, passport card, both sides etc, but they can take your money with just that info!! I contacted uk action fraud and the police! I cancelled the won camera and they still want to charge me, I am not a happy bunny5a

FREEDOM OF SPEECH:
Alan Isaacman
The People Vs Larry Flynt
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

Yes, it is a scam...
But addmittadly do any of you actually read the fine print.

I 'won' a phone for $4.
then under the account sign up, read the terms and conditions your agreeing to.
It says you must sign up for 3 months membership before they can actually ship you the item.
3 months membership at $90 per month.

It says it all. so i decided not to give them any financial information.
If you all read the fine print and t's and c's, you wouldn't have been fooled so easily...
