    Mods: put it here cause it somewhat relates and gets more traffic, if it's too vague go ahead and move it.

    Been going to the local auto auctions with a guy I know looking for a new ride for me. Came across this site and was wondering if anybody was farmiliar or had a login.

    or if it's just a scam to give you listings of auctions and take your $40

    It seems to be a rip-off to me. I work at a federal agency, and it's no secret how the auctions are operated and when/where they are. I would go to www.gsa.gov and search for "surplus".

    Well, now that I look at it. It might not cover all of that but some internet searching should find it all.

    Anyone ever bid on an item and won? If so, how are your dealings with them?

    Ive bought from gov liquidation but I can go look at all the stuff before I buy it and I talk to the guys that work for our local auction all the time. There a certified government auction website. Hope this helps

    what about online auto auctions, things such as salvage, repo, impound that sort of thing.. anyone know of any of these? places besides ebay, and copart.

    without a dealers liscense of course.
