Sorry for not updating in a while. I've been really busy lately. Here is what I take to be the final outcome of my my experience with Bidfather:
Me: 3 wins owed out of about 15
Other bidder: 9 wins owed out of 12
Other bidder: 0 wins owed out of 5
The wins that I am owed all have estimated arrival dates for mid-December so unless they were eaten by a postal worker they never actually shipped out. I've gotten no response to my last two e-mails. The bright side is that although somewhat peeved, I've at least gotten my investment back.
The other bidder owed money is not so luck and upon calling paypal was told that because she was filing beyond the 45 day limit they could not do anything about refunding her money aside from file a complain with the fraud department or they'd risk BF taking legal action against them which I know is total crap since I've personally filed disputes about 3 months out for items not received and for BF to have legal ground they'd need to actually have been wronged!
Anyway, that's my update.
I will probably send out another e-mail to BF later today and will see about helping the other bidder get somewhere with Paypal, although honestly if that doesn't work she can just charge back via her back and credit cards. It's a little more laborious since she'd have to go through 2 separate entities and overall wait for a longer period of time to see all of her money back but it a viable option.
