Both bidchaser.com and qshopnow.com are down as of 11/20/2006 or before. Who knows when they’ll be back up. Weeks of non-answers from the Cunha’s and the Indian outfit that supposedly owns the sites probably describes how much attention they are paying to "top notch customer support". Continue reading »

Leo Cunha (spammer and owner of Bidchaser.com) has replaced his Indian developers with different developers, and supposedly is making improvements to the bug ridden bidchaser.com. He thinks he’s going to take on Overstock now.
He’s closed some forums from public viewing, but he definitely has been recruiting a lot of Indian talent to promote this lame auction site.
Here’s a video he’s contemplating on using on TV, hopefully nowhere in America.
He’s also decided to let the Indian talent take care of the site now, he is no longer interested in answering questions about bugs.
In addition, he’s making all sellers re-validate their status to make sure he knows who you are.
Here’s some kind of Video Festival bidchaser is “sponsoring”. Visit it to see the grammatical errors.
Its sorry to see that some bidchaser victims are drinking the kool aid again! Continue reading »

KNOCK IT OFF WITH THE EMAILS is the title of this message from a user to Leo Cunha, owner and consistent spammer apologist for Bidchaser.
Its not Leo’s fault though, it was just an accident that this user received 3000 emails!
We have shut off the relisting messaging on the new end-of-auction/relist processor. I apologize to the members who got flooded with the relist emails.
We had staff working on the process over the weekend, and although the new system is working very well compared to the old one, there was a misunderstanding on when to send/not send confirmation emails. That has been cleared, and has stopped. The new EOA (End Of Auction) Processor checks every 15 minutes, and updates and closed bids, relists, etc, including automatic relists.
We are now gettting ready to implement the new counter processor, as well as continue a clean-up of the imaging system, where some of our older auction and store items did not have their pictures processed completely.
I expect that the complete migration to the 2.0 code will be completed within the next 5 to 10 days.
A poor user of Bidchaser.com (known and documented spammer) wants to know why his end of auction emails aren’t going out to his customers.
The CEO, Leo Cunha, admits that some ISP’s are marking outgoing bidcahser mail as spam. Wonder why that could be?
According to our logs, the emails are going out. We have found out that some services either block some of our outgoing mail, or send them to the “spam” folder, which many people clear without looking at.
I am getting an estimate on adding a link to the closed auctions section, so if an auction or item has sold, the buyer information can be retrieved easily. Will let you know as soon as that is available.
In the meantime, I will research these auctions and provide you with the contact info.
You wouldn’t think it would be possible, you’d like Leo Cunha would learn his lesson.
Bidchaser.com has been spamming unsuspecting poor souls again!
You’ll see once again how Leo apologizes for the confusion and his incompetence! Bidchaser supposedly uses that emailmaestro.com non-spamming mechanism, but obviously that isn’t working very well, or Leo didn’t pay for it, or Leo’s an idiot, maybe a little bit of all three. Don’t believe his bullshit!
Please accept my apologies. We are testing some new designs and marketing concepts for the Bidchaser stores. These were scheduled to be introduced once we had received some iniitial feedback, and are aimed at helping our sellers market niche products to a specific audience.
The mailer was mistakenly sent to our GEARup mailing list instead of the internal staff’s for testing.
This mailer is a sample that has been under development with our marketing partners. As you see, it is in a very raw form without the “wrappers”, headers, footers, disclaimers, etc.
Again, please accept my sincere apologies.
I was hoping to announce this program under better circumstances, and will do so after we get feedback on its effectiveness from our marketing partners. I will be glad to post the “finished product” as it will be mailed to our marketing partners’ subscription-based lists.
