We've been approached by this sales rep trying to get us to buy into the concept of DubLi auctions. I've had a quick look and I can't see if it is a complete scam or a viable business opportunity. With a number of websites stating that it is slightly dodgy I'm a bit hesitant. Anyone had any experience with this crowd??

In my experience, the answer to any thread that starts with the question "is this a scam" is usually "yes".
IOW, if you are unsure enough to ask, then it probably is.

I would be interested to know whether the Department of Internal Affairs considers their system gambling because if they do then its illegal to promote it in NZ. Another scheme which sounds pretty similar was ruled illegal by DIA a while ago.

Just talked to the DIA - and they recommended seeking legal advice before proceeding (in other words - don't go there!)

Thanks to all that replied.

freitasm: Auctions that require customers to pay for bids should be avoided like the plague.

Enough said.

Isn't that like bid rivals?
