In the interest of keeping our clients and customers informed, we are sharing that Sandhills Global Inc. is currently involved in a ransomware attack, which seems to have been initiated early morning, Friday, October 1. Sandhills owns the HiBid.com product and other online marketplace products. All of the Sandhills websites are currently shut down (including HiBid.com), and it seems they may be locked out of their servers.
This is the reason why some of you have been unable to access our hibid.com catalogue. As such, our October 9 auction will be conducted solely on the LIve Auctioneers website- https://www.liveauctioneers.com/catalog/220525_online-decorative-arts-special-collections/
Depending on how long it takes to resolve this situation, we may also conduct our October 16 auction on Live Auctioneers, as well.
Buyer’s Premium on Live Auctioneers is 20%, but prompt payments via cash, check, wire transfer or Zelle will reduce the premium to 17%, as usual.
