I seem to be one of the few that understood what I was getting into. I did win an auction item Dec. 1,2010. Here lies my problem though. The item processing has been extended twice now. My last two emails have not been answered, and phone support is a joke. Like a few other people, my next step will be contacting the Atlanta BBB. They have helped a few others lately.

Many bad reviews are because people did not do enough research to understand what penny auction sites are and how they work. Each bid costs money, and that is how things are with these sites.

However, my issue is the lack of customer service. Their phone lines are often down/inaccessible. Their online support is completely useless. And, none of the items that I have gotten through the site have arrived, some after more than a month, and I cannot get updates as to where those orders stand. One such order was placed on December 2, 2010 (Order Number 1249051).

Stay away from Wavee and their sample deal/promotion offers....Like many I got scammed into the $75 credit card charge. I emailed their customer service asking for a full refund. They only offered me a refund for $37.50. It has net been credited yet.I give them a rating of 0.

I spent $75.00 for credits, then $37.50 for credits. I ordered the XBox360 Kinnect for $137.50. That was Nov 16, 2010. It is now, Dec. 22, 2010 No item has been shipped. I finally, after 10 calls, 4 e-mails, was able to cancel the order the money will be refunded 7 to 10 days. But that's only the $137.50. The other money, they flat out refused to return. I asked to speak to a supervisor, the Supervisor will call me back 24-48 hours. The recording on the phone when I call says that Customer service is #1 with them. That's crap! I suggest that they are a scam, do NOT PURCHASE FROM THEM!!!!!

The core of Wavee's business, a penny auction with 1 cent bid increments and a $0.75/bid fee, is straightforward and well explained. I have no doubt that it is possible to win something for a good price on Wavee. The problem is that around this core Wavee has wrapped layers of deception and outright lies to attract, and essentially defraud, unsuspecting marks. Their sign up page prominently claims that sign up is free, and that you will get five free bids, but does not disclose the $75 charge that comes between the "free" sign up and the "free" bids. Many legitimate sites ask for credit card information as a backup against future charges, but always ask for confirmation that you agree to any charge they make. Wavee charges your card the instant you give the information, without any confirmation page. I suspect that Wavee gives just enough information about its charges, buried in various places on the sign in pages, to stay just on the right side of the law. Nevertheless the system is very misleading and clearly designed to deceive. Where Wavee crosses the line into outright lying is in its claim to offer the "lowest price online" for its products. Since the cost of losing bids can be applied toward the "buy it now" price, if you are commited to buying a particular product in any case you might as well bid for it on Wavee and buy it outright in the likely event that you lose the auction. This promise, clearly stated and emphasized in the promotional video, is what drew me in. In fact, Wavee does not offer the lowest price. After signing up a rep told me that it never promised that it did, but only that it offers "among the lowest prices." By pointing out that this is a flat lie, and with a little insistence, I was able to get a promise of a refund for my $75.

Once can defend the penny auction part of Wavee's business, but it's methods of luring people in and taking money from them are indefensible. They are not the kinds of practices one expects from honest people. At best they are deceptive, and at worst they border on outright fraud.

Do not trust this company.

This is a terrible site. Upon sign up you are lead to what they call "strp 2" and after telling you that you will only be charged $.75 for each bid they ask you for your credit card. There is also a choice to sign up for the Pro package which is $179 but when you complete the second step you are automatically signed up for Pro and charged a NON-REFUNDAL FEE OF $179. This is not clearly stated on the site as to you being automactically charged. Don't use this site's services. Not worth it. I called customer service and they would do nothing to refund me. Shame on Wavee for taking advantage of people!

This company claims that "customer service is their top priority" but they will defraud you out of your money if you are not very careful. I was signing up to take a look at this site and after choosing a username I was presented with a page that asked for my address and CC info that looked like it had some advertising around the edges. I thought the CC info was for verification and so they could charge for shipping. After clicking the "get started" button I got an email stating that I had been charged $180. I immediately called customer service only to be told what a great deal I had gotten on credits and that the charge was non-refundable. They WOULD NOT refund the charge. So, I have contacted my CC company to complain about their fraudulent business practice. In addition, there really are not that many choices of things to bid on. I would STRONGLY suggest you look elsewhere and certainly don't expect to be treated fairly by this company.

This is concerning order number /transaction #3241519383. Jeremy in Greenville SC.

Horrible company. Tried it after reviewing their set up ,promised 110 free credits plus 5 for signing up. Used under 20 bids, then quit Received an email my credit card was to be charged almost $180.00 for credits I bought which I NEVER DID! Had to call my credit card co. and report this and emailed wavee right away. They said they would get back to me within 48 hours. They have not. I will never pay this fraudlulent co. a penny nor will I ever use it. My name is marion, I live in Aiken, SC 29801

I use Wavee frequently, and I very much like the site. It is my favorite out of Swoopo and bidcactus etc. I have won a couple auctions and my items were delivered really quickly. It's a new site,so its not so many people on it too.

This has been by far the worst buying experience I have ever had on the internet. The people behind Wavee should be investegated. My advice is to stay clear or any dealing with this company. I did not see a selection for no stars you had yo pick at least one they do not rate one STAR. Rather a -10 Star. Bad news,Rip off, I cant belive that they are still on the internet. My order keeps beeing pushed back a month at a time. If you read any positive feed back it is because the person does not realize yet that he will proberly not receive his item in this life Time. You proberly wont read this letter if Wavee has any thing to do with it. But if you do BEWARE

Sorry if you are reading this message after the fact. Like most all users very disapointed.
