Story sounds familiar to me on so many levels. That whole paypal gift option can really bite some asses. Good Luck.

I got a reply the next day (6/11) from bila, blaming school for taking up all his time and saying that he would make them that very day and have tracking info for me later on that day.

 

It's 6/18, no headphones, no tracking info, but I did get lied to again and bila has a much less polite PM sitting in his inbox. It's been 81 days since I sent my cans to him, so I'm pretty confident that I got scammed and I'm likely now out a pair of headphones (Grado SR-80i) and 85 bucks. So cool! Just what I always wanted! To get ripped off on the internet.

 

Even if bila sent me my cans without the shells and gave me my money back, I'd still be screwed because he broke my inners trying to liberate my driver to fix it. I'm really in shock about this whole thing. Am I being unreasonable? Do I not have a right to be mad at this point? If I was you guys, I wouldn't deal with bilavideo until he proves that he's changed his ways. I tried being patient, I tried being nice, but it's gotten me nowhere.

 

I hope some of you expecting things from him have better luck...

(P.S. For anyone who cares, I'm healing up well from the accident, leg is still in a cast and my ribs hurt a bit when I breath real deep, but otherwise fine. Cops found the lady who hit me, I'm doing the legal thing and totally going to win, so yay from that side of things.)

*nods* I sent him some money for some dynamat which I never got (gave up and got some from schwallman). It was only 3 dollars, still a bit of a bummer. He shouldn't tell people he can do things and that they are in the mail when they aren't. Plain and simple. 

 

Jacob,

 

I can send you some inners. I have both of mine in relatively good shape. I remember putting a bit of a crack in one of them, but it didn't go all the way through. They should totally work to replace your broken inner. I think you do have the right to be mad. I don't think you have really been "scammed". I really doubt those were bill's intentions, but I more than understand why you are angry. Also, glad to hear that you are healing well and that the cops found the woman that hit you. I feel like those things go unsolved far too often and I'm glad you are going to get what is coming to ya in that regard. 

 

P.S. What was wrong with your driver? I wish I had a spare one of those to send you as well, but I don't :-/. Hopefully someone can help you out. If not I can PM you a coupon code and you can get a pair of iGrados for relatively cheap. I forgot just how low it was, 15% off msrp. Let me know :)

I'm in the same boat, to a lesser extent, but I'm still waiting. I mentioned a refund and got an immediate reply saying he had "all the time in the world now" to get some stuff out here, but he's pretty much disappeared since.

Fairly similar situation on my end with bilavideo but over a much shorter time frame then most, only around a month for me. In his defense we have had some long talks over pms; he is clearly a nice guy and I very much doubt that anyone who is looking to scam would take the time to type out such long replies after receiving payment. However I have thought that he had shipped at least three times over the last month when he clearly didn't. I have stated multiple times, to him through pms, that when it ships isn't a big concern to me as I am aware that his operation went from him building for himself to supplying many cups to members of this forum, however I asked many times to be kept in the loop regarding how the process is going and he has unquestionably failed in this regard.

 

I currently have a tracking number for usps priority mail bought on Mon June 13th from an APC with no tracking updates beyond this. It was expected, via a usps estimate, on Thursday the 16th which was three shipping days ago.

Nope definitely not being unreasonable and you definitely have the right to be torqued. I'm curious what head fi's thoughts on this are. Bila disrespected this place big time and certainly defrauded people even if that wasnt his intention. People trusted him and he betrayed that trust. Even after people gave him the benefit of the doubt and trusted he would make good it turns out all he was offering were empty promises.

The situation is indeed weird. I just looked up his feedback and so far all of them are positive, though they date to years back. And while some people have received their woodies recently (there were two, if I remember correctly) a lot of others (myself included) have been waiting for months now. Bila hasn't been on head-fi for the last week or so, I certainly hope he shows up soon to rectify/clarify the problem/issues. I am taking this from the standpoint that all in all he does mean well and he isn't quite out to scam people (does he really gain that much, after all?), but my gripe is in his constantly keeping people in the dark and his not entirely realistic projections with regards to their orders.

 

P.S. Bila if you ever read this I would suggest you stop taking orders for the meantime and settle the current accounts first, as well as be completely transparent with the exact stage peoples' orders are at, it would go a long way towards assuaging doubts.

 

P.P.S. My apologies for taking this further (and hence seeming like a hypocrite), but I think the issue right now is pretty clear and does not warrant much further discussion? It would only serve to derail and clog up the thread. Just my $0.02

I first got hooked on this thread on this site a little over two months ago because of the cool people, the cool mods, and because Bila's comments and workmanship captured my attention. I don't have a horse in this race, but it's interesting (disappointing?) to see how things have played out... 

 

Hopefully he'll come clean and get everyone squared away, starting with some honest communication.

We have a great community here nonetheless one19. I don't think anything is disappointing aside from the few people who have been treated poorly. We will keep this thread truckin for a while.

post #4569 of 5003

On my end, I've msged him and haven't gotten a reply. 

 


He said my cups were sent on the 10th. Judging from his previous cups it would take 7 days. I don't think he sent it.

 

On another note, I've taken my headband to a leathersmith around the corner. Chose the leather I want in Full grain leather and I'll receive a qoute tomorrow.

On Bill's waiting list since end January. I'll spare the details (and time to type them) as most is on the previous posts. I just want my money back at this point, which I've asked for but got no reply ever since.

 

I don't know if Bill is still taking up orders. I don't care if he still is accepting them. It's the forum members "fault" if they too get trapped from now on since most people are starting to come out in the open with what's going on.

 

I don't think Bill wanted to scam anyone. But he did fail, miserably.

 

edit : @unchain - Glado to hear you're coming out of the whole health situation on top. Health is priceless and we do only value that when it's found missing.

I haven't been active in a long time but yes.

I thought i was the only one having a problem but i had the same problem with bilavideo.

I sent my SR-225's out to him in march and last week he sent me a tracking #.

But the tracking # hasn't updated and USPS said expected delivery was supposed to be Jun. 16th.

So I'm not sure if they lost the package or why there is a delay.

i've had to email him many many times but it looks like he finally came through for me.

But i still haven't gotten the headphones back yet.

Well that's good news to you man. Keep the thread updated as it could use some good news.

I'm in the exact same boat as you.

Is this usps problem or bills?

Does anyone have any spare dynamat xtreme?
