      This is basically another name for FS auctions! Therefore, everything I have said about FS Auctions applies here. FS Auctions' biggest fault is the way in which it tries to look like a busy site by using corporate auctions. Basically, this is how companies use FSauctions to sell their stuff. Normally, they start their auctions off at £1, with no reserve, but it is all one big confidence trick. The use of corporate auctions makes the site look much busier than it really is. Many people who log onto FS auctions do so only to bid on the £1 corporate auctions, and do not bother looking at the other stuff being auctioned off by normal people. Another problem with the site is that it is messy, and very hard to navigate. The way each item is set out is unprofessional, and boring. The overall design of the site is totally unattractive. The worst thing about FS auctions, though, has got to be the ridiculous way in which it extends the bidding time of an auction if someone bids in the closing minutes. Some people might like this aspect of FS auction, but to me, this is terrible. An auction should end when it is supposed to end, and not be extended by 5 minutes at a time should someone try to sneak in at the last minute. That is what "maximum bid" is all about. So, just to recant...this site is poorly designed, falsely made to look busy. Boring. Not much real activity, and not many people actually clicking to view "normal" auctions, (as opposed to corporate auctions). One last thing that strikes me about FS auctions is that most sellers seem not to have much in the way of feedback. This makes security an issue, too. Prices are too high, and not nearly enough real auctions take place. Stick to ebay.co.uk, yahoo, or the like for a more professional auction site, with less in the way of corporate auctions. There are far more well established sellers on these other sites, than on FS auctions. For safety, stay away fr
      om FS auctions.
