Yes Ziinga is a scam. I too bid and paid for the auction and shipping for two products. Then my bank account was debited twice for their so called monthly membership fees $119.99.

Apparently when you agree to their terms and conditions their fees are in there. Who has their costs hidden in the terms in conditions.

My bank enquired and this is what they were told. I emailed Ziinga 4 times and their reply was - this matter has been dealt with and my monies was not being refunded.

Scammers and rip off ar(se)tists.

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...

try deal dash, i won a four slice professional toaster for 15 cents, a Cuisinart Hand Blender for 63 cents and a writing tablet for 69 cents. one is in transit the other two have already arrived. i spent 32 dollars on bids and still have half of them left. best trick, bid very early in the morning when others are slumbering.

I don't know about this auction site but NOT all penny auction sites are scams. Please feel free to check out pennywizard.com and decide for yourself. There are many small to mid size sites who are really trying to make a living at something that is new, fun, and interesting. I think you should do more research before labeling something a scam. That doesn't mean people haven't lost money but that doesn't make it a scam.

Ziinga is a scam a won an item then all the page wanted is that i pay i never registered no name or address how can they ask me to pay what a farce

please read before you pay for anything i read more and the note said

* Included with this payment is a 7-day free Platinum membership. Once the free days expire, normal monthly fee of C$89.99 applies. The membership is only binding for 3 months.

So here is the catch after they get your credit card number then they are entitled to deduct the 89.99 for 3 month minimum hahahahhahah what a rip off

WARNING READ THE FINE PRINT

Lol.

 Quoting: Snarf


It is not ridiculous as penny auctions do work, however this one does seem to be scammy. Think about it: the company is actually making approx. 100x times more for items (depending on their rate for bids), which makes it worth it to sell things for such a "low" price. In turn, the buyer is spending at around 50% less what they would have, as they are bidding amongst others.
