The Atlanta based penny auction site called Wavee.com has gone out of business.

The Governor's office of Consumer Affairs says the company didn't send winners their merchandise in a timely manner and didn't clearly explain that when registering for Wavee, members credit cards would be charged to purchase bid credits.

Wavee has agreed to provide $202,000 in consumer restitution, a $35,000 civil penalty and 15,000 in administrative expenses. The Office of Consumer Affairs said Wavee has also agreed to pay the state $50,000 to establish a trust account for issuing refunds to customers who unintentionally purchased bid credits from Wavee.
