I don't do a ton of bidding through SAN but while browsing this morning I started to look through the current Siegel auction but didn't see the "bid box" next to the lots. Top of page said something to the effect of " your registration has been reviewed and you are not approved to bid in this auction"

I've never bid on an item in a Siegel auction, I'm approved at every other major action firm, and I have AAA credit. What is the best means of contacting these folks to find out what their issue is? Anyone else run into this?

Just give them a call. No point in speculating, if you don't know.

Sounds like they might have deactivated your account due to inactivity. Give them a call.

I used their "contact us" option on their website so we will see what they say. My account looks like it is active, I have a member number and when I log in I get their welcome message. Very odd.

Sorry in advance if this is redundant...

On SAN, for each vendor we're required to request approval to bid on SAN. See screen shot below. And again, sorry if this old news.

I heard back from them. Apparently they have tried to contact me a few times to update my references. My guess is they were getting filtered into junk mail as I haven't seen the emails. I sent them an update so now ball is in their court.

Siegel was burned in a major way some time ago and I believe are much more diligent in approving and reviewing now. Stamp auctions are still surprisingly easy when it comes to approval. Barrett-Jackson automobile auctions are much more thorough. As a frequent consignor who has had issues getting paid at times because of slow and non-paying bidders I wish that all of the firms were as proactive as Siegel.
