Is this site too good to be true?

I keep seeing this site advertised everywhere on the net, so i clicked on it to see what it's about. My question is is this actually for real? it seems way too good to be true, but you never know. Opinions?

I have seen it before. Where you buy bids. Some peoples testaments werent that great, staying by the computer for hours and then losing out.

Thats totally their fault though. The system is great. Its better then a Ponzi scheme if you ask me. If you have the patience, its good for you.

Not worth it--when you have to "buy" bids. If you find something really obscure and unpopular--you may get a good deal.

So, you can bid on something, get outbid and not win, and you still have to pay what you bid. Sounds like heaven for idiots to me.

That's what I thought, too. At least on the bay--you don't pay for bids.
