Description

We have requested background information from this company including the nature of their business but we have not received a response. BBB has concerns about the promised returns on investments that are being reported to us by inquirers. Callers indicate that more focus is placed on the recruiting and investing aspects compared to the actual penny auctions themselves. Please be sure to read additional articles listed below about pyramid and Ponzi schemes.

A recent review of customer complaints shows a pattern of customers not receiving promised payments from the business as well as difficultly reaching the company.
