Has anyone ever heard of "Mighty Bids.com"? Is this a legitimate group?

I received an email with an invitation to join this web site. They are asking for my personal bank account information and I am reluctant to give it to them unless I know someone else who has used them. Any help I can get will be appreciated.

I wouldn't do that. I bought lately something from bidz.com (a jewelry auction). I hadn't any paypal account at this time, and I was a bit afraid to use my credit card but my bank offers virtual credit cards for such cases. It is opened only a month or two, and there is a limited amount of money, as much as I need for to make a purchase. I can order such a card anytime I like, via internet, and it takes only few minutes. Perhaps your bank can do something alike for you, if you are interested in some offer of Mightybids?

I don’t hear it before but I have just opened it to see what is there. In my opinion if you want to buy some thing and interested in auctions then go for ebay.com they will never ask for bank accounts. Ebay deals with paypal that is more secure. There are lots of scams on internet, everything is possible on the net so, be cautious.

Never heard of them, but I would definately not give out your bank information! I don't join anything that asks for it, I've been scammed way to many times now! I would stick to the free things if I were you! Good luck!

I would be afraid to. All you can do is research the sight and see what they tell you. Alot of times you can go to the Better Business Bureau websight and see if that company is listed for illegal activities or complaints against them. If it's legit and pays good let me know :)

I would never join or sign up for any website that asks for my bank account information. There is definitely something suspicious about a website that does that and it should be investigated and reported. There are too many scams out there.

Never heard of "Mighty Bids.com", you could always do a search on the Internet for more information about them. Or try to ask that question in Yahoo.com question section.
