The latest incarnation of penny auctions by HogitUp.com is now officially among the ranks of failed prospects.
Rabideagle Enterprises announced today that they will stop operations of paid auctions at HogitUp.com. As many have done in the past, they point to bidder complaints and issues as the reason for their failing. In this particular instance it seems as if the frustration of continued attempts to please customers has finally caught up with them.
Here's some of what HogitUp.com posted at their site today;
"HogitUp.com will completely cease all paid membership auctions effective 3-19-2012.
Following two different email complaints from users that don’t wish to take the time to understand how the auctions here at HogitUp.com operate we have decided that we are simply sick and tired of fielding complaints from people that don’t take the time to read.
No matter how many places we state how the site operates, what the rules are, why things work the way they do….no one bothers to read it. They prefer instead to email us telling us that they will post in forums that we use BOTS, allow collusion, or whatever else they can think of to threaten us into giving them free money.
