Madbid...anyone use it.

http://uk.madbid.com/live/
Does anyone use the site and how does it work?
How is it possible to buy a £1200 laptop for £143 and is it brand new.
Who are you buying from?
Is it just another Ebay clone?

Re: Madbid...anyone use it.

From what I read it's more akin to gambling. You buy bids so even if you don't win the item Madbid has made money from you.
Have a look here .

Re: Madbid...anyone use it.

I looked at it once after seeing it advertised on one of the freeview channels. Looked, thought 'con' and browsed away  Smiley
I suppose if you're the sort who can stay up until the early hours when people will stop bidding, you might get lucky once or twice but I wouldn't feel like trying more than two or three times.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
