Let me ask you this instead of them owing you $175 what if they owed you $1000 0r $3000 or more would you still have the same attitude, now add that you have spent well over $1,000 maybe more. I guarantee you would be singing a different song. Now lets compound this and say this has happened to you 6-10 other times from other PA's are you simply going to lay down with your above attitude? Many here who are only out a couple giftcards simply do not comprehend the reality of this, bidfather collectivly owes bidders 10's of thousands of $$$, I am sorry but shipping a few giftcards while still running auctions they cannot pay for is a crime and unethical. Again I cannot imagine a single bidder who would spend their hard earned $$ on a PA that knowingly could not pay for the won item. It is that simple. Note: considering their financial shortcommings they may only be shippiong to the ones that are proactive here on PAW what about all the other bidders that are not on PAW do you really think they are being treated fairly? They have already demonstrated that they ship selectivly.
you sure do like using that red color in your posts
like i said, bidfather was wrong in the way they have handled this situation, that is for sure. but you do have the ammunition that you need if your items do not show up. but, you need to remember just because you say you have all these dollars ( i say that because you make it a point that you have all this money) does not mean a $25 or $50 giftcard is not the same effect to them as your $1,000 - 3,000. if someone makes $20,000 a year versus $100,000 a year obviously $25 giftcard is about the same impact as $125 for the higher earner. so if you can put in more than 6 figures into auctions compared to someone who can put in say 3 to 4 then your $1,000 is the same to you as their $100. it sure does seem as you are putting these smaller guys down. they don't deserve to be put down becuase they are only owed a $25 gift card, it is just a hard of a hit to them as you. now with that being said. i do hope you get your wins, i think you will get your wins along with everyone else. maybe i am wrong, but they have communicated with me over time. do i get wins every time i send an e-mail? no i don't. i am waiting my turn like others, and much rather see the smaller guy get theirs first. i can hold on. it is not a financial crisis to me. but, all this is ruining their chances of possibly getting their items, which i think would be a bigger impact to some of them than you are i. i think that you are fully aware of the risks of the penny auctions. there are many risks, but you still play them, so i am assuming you are prepared to take a hit every now and then.
i have taken hits from other sites, yes i have. am trying to get one resolved right now. i have been burnt by sites before, that have closed out of the blue, that have had bots etc. its a risk that you take.
now can you prove they owe 10's of thousands of dollars? thats all i am going to say about this subject. and stop the red color geez
as far as powerbidders being block on bidding that i have no knowledge of. but i can tell you this, there are still powerbidders bidding on items everyday on their site. so if they were that worried they would not be there. maybe they are using up bids maybe not. but some new PB have joined recently i see. that is their risk and anyone trying to work with bidfather that is their risk.
good luck with your bidding and everything else
