It seems, some people are already trying to trick people, whose money got stuck. Received this email from ePayments today:
Urgent: Scamming and phishing threat

Following yesterday’s announcement outlining the suspension of activity on customer accounts, we have become aware of customers being approached by third parties, offering to help access suspended accounts and recover funds.

ePayments did not send this message nor did we authorise any party to send it. Any such request should be treated with extreme caution and we urge you not to reply to it. Also, please do not follow any links, included in these messages...

I never trusted that company for some reason that's why never had any funds there, even though I have an account that is several years old.

Maybe some powerful guy is trying to shut them down, or maybe its an exit scam with the pretense of regulatory action. Wonder how brexit is related to all of this

Someone I know had funds on their prepaid card. Small amount but are his hard earned money in the end. I don't feel pity for ePayments though. I think my curses have been listened by someone. I tried to register myself last year and they said that because of some reasons that they can't tell me, I cannot open an account with them. Legit guy, in a EU country. I highly doubt that what they say is true. I think they have laundered crypto for big guys, tens of millions, and that's why they are being investigated.

If you have money with them, think like you never had that amount, because they aren't coming back!

PayPal, if you are reading this, watch your back. You are next.

I had the same experience. I even sent them where my business was registered with my state in the US. The more hoops a business wants to make you jump through, the more I become suspicious of them.

Well, we sow in past 15 years various falls fro e-gold to many other, but when it comes to epayments I think they will come back. They have licence issued by authority who susppended them now in Uk. All other, closed companies functioned on a bit different way.

Maybe I am wrong but go at fca.org.uk and seach in their registerfor epayments and you will see they are company licensed for operations they provide... https://register.fca.org.uk/ShPo_FirmDetailsPage?id=001b000000m4IXgAAM

My opinio that problem is, and if they don't come back only one: crypto stuffs. Just my 2 cents...

they will be back in action soon, this is due to the recent laws in UK surrounding crypto etc. It's totally normal.

4k got frosen. EPayments is my favorite ewallet. I haven't said a single bad word about them since i started using them two years ago and recommended them to multiple people. Till yesterday it was pleased experience i never had an issue with them. I understand they getting presure from FSA and all that but i fucking hate the way they did it and frosed all funds without notice.

Today saw advert in YouTube ... From Privacy (dot) com. May be their services can be an alternative to epayments.

Some one should check them out too. May be it's nothing.

I also really hope that soon this service will return to normal operation, because my account was also frozen, and I did not receive any specific response from the support. I temporarily had to change the service to quppy, while I can’t say anything specific since I use it relatively recently, and I did not notice any obvious problems. In my opinion, this platform is not much inferior to ePayments in terms of functionality, there is also support for IBAN and SEPA. I apologize in advance for the off top, but does someone use quppy or maybe some other similar service?

Things seem getting worst. My card is now "BLOCKED" and there is no money showing there.

My card was blocked in the moment when they had frozen user accounts.
You were lucky if you could use your card after tuesday.

Cards were blocked right in the moment, when the announcement of the suspension has been made on the 11th.
See this post earlier in the thread:
I was at mickey d's when the suspension happened, I could pay for my quarter pounder, but when I went to the cashier to get dessert, my card was denied, and I just didn't understand what's going on :D
Funds are frozen both on the account and card balance, at this point it doesn't really matter, how it shows up in the account.

Apparently, everything is really bad .... If I’m not mistaken, the cards were really blocked right after the announcement that the FCA expanded the list of requirements for payment services. I’m just wondering how this whole story will end, will people really lose their money?

I also really hope that soon this service will return to normal operation, because my account was also frozen, and I did not receive any specific response from the support. I temporarily had to change the service to quppy, while I can’t say anything specific since I use it relatively recently, and I did not notice any obvious problems.

Personally, I have not used quppy and am not familiar with this service, but judging by the number of downloads from the playmarket, this is a fairly popular platform.

i have much money on my epayments card... Is there a chance I cant use this money anymore? I can't believe it... :(
if they come back, my first thing will be to get my money out...
Doubt they're going to recover. Kinda Epese situation.
All these services come and go due to their nature. Most money stored there is, well, somewhat shady to say the least, it is the matter of time when authorities decide to bust it.
And of course they will make promises for as long as they can.
