hi, i want to know how to cancel my registration to BID WARS since its kinda annoying already. it sends updates everyday. thanks!

why? does it send spam advertorials? you can address your concern at this email

Yep, I agree with the first commenter. It's strange why they don't indicate anything about unsubscribing on their website or in any of the spam texts they send.

No, Boy Kuripot, it's not a question of spam advertorials. It's that they send DAILY MESSAGES even when you're no longer interested in joining. And then they never include in the text messages the procedure for unsubscribing.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks. It's driving me nuts!

I emailed your issues to organization handling bid wars. Hopefully, they give me a response

From Bidwars:

"On the "CONTACT US" portion of Bid Wars website, there's an instruction that tells how to opt out.

They can email their mobile numbers to our customer service at if they no longer want to receive messages from Bid Wars."
