I have been in contact with them and there are 2 responses from them:
The first email:
"I’m following up regarding the disputes you recently opened in reference to your orders with BidRivals.com. We have started the process of working on this for you. Please give me a call at your earliest convenience to discuss the next steps. I can be reached toll free at 888-926-6333 ext 149 or 703-778-4455 if you are outside of the United States."
And the second:
"We are currently working with the merchant to determine how orders that were placed before the website was taken down will be handled. We are an advocate for you, the customer, and we are trying to get outstanding issues resolved as soon as possible. We ask that you allow us some time to see how the merchant is planning to make their customers whole. I will follow up with you by Monday.
If you paid with a credit card, have you contacted your credit card company about the unfilled orders? If not, that's another avenue that you may want to consider as we are working through this together"
I will get back with more information from buysafe. Anyway, you guys should go to buysafe.com and paypal to dispute asap.
I feel sorry for the Mr Smellies, as bidrivlas is multi-coutries company, depends on the law you can get back some money or not, if they declare bankrupt, nothing you can do much but wait for their assets, but i wonder do they have any assets in these coutries or not?! Anyway, contact your lawyer is the best way.
