Tax Foreclosure Bidder Advisory

All tax foreclosure sales will be free from collusion, bid rigging, or any other activity designed to suppress the final price of the auction. Free and open competition must exist in bidding at all times. Private individuals and/or organizations participating in the bidding process must do so independently.

When competitors collude, or engage in bid rigging, they are subject to criminal prosecution by the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice, and/or local prosecution. The relevant North Carolina statute is G.S. 75-1, the Unfair Trade Practice Act (UTPA). This can be enforced by individuals, by the NC Attorney General or by the local District Attorney. Civil and criminal penalties may be assessed for violations; criminal violations are felonies.
