Anyone know anything about auction sniper?

Is it legit and does it work?

It seems to work, and lodges a winning bid at the very last minute. Whether its legal???

byfordr, have you actually used it? and did it work for you (did you win the auction)?

When I say legit, I was concerned about giving my PayPal details to a third party web site.

Or perhaps I wouldn't need to, just my Ebay account details, then I pay later, after wining?

Guess I'll have to go back and read that bit again!

Thanks Tas

Never used it myself not my bag...but some colleagues were raving on about it. Not sure what would happen if 2 people tried to use it in the same auction.

Just doesn't seem cricket.

when I first saw it, I too did not like the idea. Eliminates the fun from bidding I suppose (and my initial reaction was CHEAT!!!).

However, I am now in a position of desperately needing something which is on ebay so I was tempted.

Glad to say you made me question my morals and helped me make the right decision.

Have to hope I can win my "prize" the fair way!

Thank you
