While visiting my sister in Washington she got me hooked on a web page that I want to share with one and all. It is called Propertyroom.com It is a web page that sells things that are stolen and are from property rooms in the united states. It also has new items. What I like about the page it has One-hour quick wins. That means they have items for sale that you can win in an hour. I won a diamond and safire bracelet. The safires where almost 4carets but the diamonds where dust. hahaha. The braclet is pretty and I only paid 10 dollars. I did pay 11 dollars for shipping and handling. My twin sister got a self winding watch that is valued for 2000 dollars for 24 dollars. I am having fun bidding and losing and also winning. I found a prostetic leg, a saddle and all sorts of things on the page. Good luck bidding. http://www.propertyroom.com/Default.aspx

Wow! I think I'm going to shop there for my next computer, that's for sure! It looks like the power test their electronics, at least, so I know it will at least turn on. The only problem I could see is that just because it turns on, doesn't mean it really works or that there isn't any problem with it. But, if I can get a better computer for less than $100, it might be worth it. I saw that ambulance that is currently going for $3550. I wonder how many people who had stuff stolen go on that website to find and buy back their stuff.

I know they make sure to try and find the ower first. I also wonder if the person who stole it is willing to buy it because they did not want to buy it in the first place. I love the auction. I love going everyday just to look around. When I have bought items they seem to come in a matter of days. The shipping is a lot but it comes right away. I am waiting for my son's new/stolen coat I just won the other day. It should be here by today or tomorrow.

Thanks for the best response. I still check in on that site now and then, but I haven't bought anything, yet.

Whatever you do, don't put in bids for their "jewelry lots" or "jewelry accessories". It's a ripoff scheme, though what they do is legal, according to their disclaimers. The photos of the items are doctored in such a way that you are led to believe you are at least receiving a fine jewelry item or two. Can't say much for the other items, as they can be difficult to identify. Some photos included "14k" or "10k", etc. strategically placed assumably designed to attract higher bids. Don't trust the hallmarks, they are likely to be fakes. Again, all this is legal due to the terms. But do you want to do business with an entity that makes efforts to MISLEAD you into making an excessivly high bid? I know many other bidders are dissapointed - It shows in the current lack of bids for these "bulk jewelry lots". PropertyRoom will not refund any of these items(less a restock fee). Furthermore, any winning bids outstanding at the time you receive your first dissapointing lot of used "costume-jewelry-looking -like-fine-jewelry-in-the-photo"(from a prior winning bid), must be paid(a valid credit card at the time you win)or other items you have won and have paid for, THAT HAVE NOT BEEN SHIPPED YET, will be witheld until you pay up on your most current winning bid(s). Plus you are charged $15 per occurence if a credit card charge is declined. All designed to take away the most money possible from you, they will hold you hostage until all is paid. Maybe best to go ahead and let them charge you $15 and withold $20 worth of goods, rather than be charged $75+ for good worth $15-$30. The math seems to hold up. Anyway, in short, Propertyroom does not get "my winning bid", anymore, nor my endorsement. Would like to here from anyone else who has had a similar experience. Paul

Thanks for sharing. I know airports have things on ebay that they collect at check in points that aren't allowed to be taken on the plane. Sounds like you can get lots of bargains on that website.

Why would you get ripped off. You know it has been stolen and you are buying stuff they could not find the owner. I have bid on a diamond ring. The diamonds are good quality but the ring was sawed off. I just want the diamonds so I can put in another setting.
