I bid and met the reserve price. I went past the point of depositing $2,500 in an escrow account, there was a bank charge of $25.00 for the transfer on December 19th, 2019. As late as last evening I was told I had won the house. I transferred funds to the escrow as directed by Auction.com on the 19th, according to the escrow company in an internal email I was included on to a supervisor..."Can you check with the seller to see which contract they show is the one they are honoring? We have 2 separate contracts with 2 different buyers for the same property. Both with the same asset company." I'm out 3 weeks' time and a $25 wire transfer fee. On December 23..."The next step is closing, We will be in touch to assist you with the remainder of the process." LOL, I had to tell them that apparently it had been sold...
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
