This is very "suspicious".
"Grab A Bargain, which boasts an inventory of more than 2 million items"
In two cases of sellers on EBay, I have found that all of their EBay listings are also
identical listings (description wise - I don't/won't get a bargain.com account - No one
needs my credit card number to simply become a member) on bargain.com.
The two cases are Ebay members frenchcab.com and stoutauctions.com. I have
notified these two as I find it "a little" strange that they are trying to auction the items
on EBay and simultaneously trying to do a "fixed price" sale on bargain.com.
I just received a response from frenchcab.com, and what a surprise - they didn't know
anything about bargain.com. They say they aren't members and don't have an account
with them. They are "investigating" further.
Another small note is that "mysteriously" the bargain.com price quoted is exactly the
current bid price on EBay.
I also notified EBay, and I expect that you will be seeing soon
"Grab Your Socks, eBay Takes Aim at Bargain.com"
I feel that this "suspicious" behaviour should be an equal subject of an
www.EcommerceTimes.com press release. It looks like bargain.com scammed
you and Mark W. Vigoroso.
