Bid Rivals Dear Sam,
I agree with you that Madbid is a very good sample for us.
You all may noticed that the former Bidrivals kept offering auctions without being able to deliver. This caused a lot of problems and bad reviews. It will takes months / maybe up to a year to grow over the reputation and damage. There are a lot of penny auction company’s that just disappeared without honoring their commitments towards users. The same was about the happen with current pending deliveries and we want to prevent this. We will do all our best to send the products as soon as possible. I hope winners could understand that sorting things out from a very messy situation could take time. I hope we’ll get time so we can make sure everybody have smile at the end.

Bid Rivals Bid Rivals Yes Alan,
There are lawsuits against Bidrivals LTD and that we took over the assets (not Bidrivals LTD). All lawsuits are being targeted towards our company. We asked the former owners if there we’re law suits. Always denied. Now we are working hard to get Bidrivals live again without any interruption. Sorry for the turbulent time regarding The domain is currently turned off for owner change and formal changes.
