Bidfun Review – Is Bidfun.com a Scam?
Bidfun review shows that this is a website that is dedicated to the penny auction trend. Penny auctions
are somewhat like traditional auctions in that there are items that you bid on. The difference is with the penny
auction model you have to spend money to bid. While this seems like a viable site, it lacks some of the deals on
big ticket items that you could find at a site like Auction
You have to buy bid packs sometimes
referred to as tokens or credits before you ever make a bid to buy something. On bidfun.com the bids are called
points. The cost is a bit high at $1.00 per point. The problem is the points only increase the bids by $.01 so
