I wonder if anyone got scammed in any way so far.
It seems extremely easy to set people up... especially lately, lots of new sellers with new accounts poped up...can anyone share the experience?

Also, seems like people don't really care to leave feedbacks, its a great way to find out who can be trusted... or am i wrong?
I have only sold two items, but I have had two great experiences at biddingpond.

How about making a list of trusted sellers or something like that, cuz very few people ever leave feedback on Biddingpool...

I think people should just leave feedback on the site.  I did for all of my transactions.  It takes just a few seconds, it is easy. 

If something goes wrong, list it on the site, and on this board so as many people as possible know.  I won four auctions, and was very happy with three of them.  The fourth, giftomatic, ripped me off and I left him a negative.

True, i would do that [leave feedback that is] however if something goes wrong, noone's gonna pay you back...and if I see well, the prices on auctions sometimes jump quite high, and the loss of say...300btc is quite...quite substantial. I find that soo disturbing. Besides, how much is enough, 1 refereal...2? -.-

We suggest clearcoin for all large purchase items and seller's with low feedback scores(less than 50).  You can access clear coin at http://clearcoin.com/ .  We will be offering our own escrow service in the future(unknown date) but believe clearcoin to be the best option right now.

When I click on "Coins and Stamps" it says "Coins (2)" but there is only one auction below it.

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

Yep. Tried to buy 2 things and pretty sure they were from the same scammer.
Depresses me a bit, but yeah.

Guess I'll be more careful next time.
I trust people too easily.

But yes, it does seem to be me that it is easy to scam.

Due to the ever increasing attacks from the Tor network, we will be blocking all tor originating traffic.  We understand this will inconvenience some users and are working on an alternative way for Tor users to access our site while maintaining site security.

It seems some people have bots set up. As soon as I bid I am "outbid" instantly.

Or is this some strange option in your site?

If you place an amount higher than the current bid the site will bid on your behalf until it reaches your max bid amount.  This is called "Proxy Bidding" and is the standard for online auction sites.

BiddingPond has implemented new heuristic searches to find and deny access to the website for those who are shill bidding and actively defrauding users.  If you find yourself denied and unable to access the site please contact us at contact@biddingpond.com with your account information so we may investigate the situation.

Site seems to be down, in some kind of redirect loop between index.php and message.php.

The site is up without a problem.

Please contact support with your IP address and username.  Also, be aware that TOR originating traffic is being rejected as well as those accounts that have been linked to scammers and those who have been shills recently and in the past.

I think I was scammed. I don't blame biddingpond at all. I was stupid all around, mainly for not insisting on clearcoin.

I just want everyone to know that no bad feedback doesn't mean squat. Accounts are free and you can scam multiple people before anyone is sure that the items aren't coming anyway.

Mind elaborating? Yeah I would never not use clearcoin for anything over a couple bucks no reason in my opinion to not use clearcoin other then trying to scam.

I bought an ipad from a guy with 1 (maybe 2) previous sales and no feedback. He said he needed the money quick (the auction was just 1 day long) so I paid him directly. He emailed 2 days later saying it was in the mail and he would send a tracking number soon. Now it's been 10 days or so and no response or package. One of his other buyers now says no package yet as well.

Sorry to hear that at least bidding pond admin seems to be trying with that heuristics thingy.
