This is insane :(

From: Christopher Mallick, Owner, ePassporte.com <http://ePassporte.com>

Dear ePassporte Account Holders,

Please be advised that, at 12:00 PM PDT today, September 2, 2010, we were notified that effective immediately, Visa International has suspended our banking partner?s (St. Kitts Nevis Anguilla National Bank) ePassporte Visa program. The ePassporte e-Wallet program continues to be up and running, except funds cannot be transferred between your Visa Account and your e-Wallet. At this time ePassporte can no longer issue Visa Cards, and the ability for our Account Holders to make point of sale purchases and withdraw funds from ATMs has also been suspended.

At this time we do not know why this drastic action was taken by Visa. To us, it is unconscionable that such action would be taken without the opportunity for ePassporte to fully understand Visa?s reasons and to be able to take all steps necessary to keep our program running the way it has so successfully done for over 7 years. But that is what Visa has done.

As soon as we have more information we will be in contact with you.
In the meantime please be assured that your funds are safe.

We are very sorry for the short notice and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. The ePassporte team is working diligently to rectify this situation.

We kindly ask you to bear with us while we work through this issue.

Please feel free to contact us via the message center or at our call center, should you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Thank You,


Christopher Mallick

if you have your money in the "wallet" then you are "safe" but if you had it in virtual visa (like i did) then you are fucked

If Visa had issues with ePassporte after 7 years of working with them, there should have been a history of warnings to the company prior to suspending its service. Just doing this out of the blue is absolutely ridiculous.

Wow...that's crazy....I can't believe that.

I'd type more on my feelings about this, but I'm too damn tired.

Really though, that is appalling.

EDIT: I can't believe they had the audacity to end that email such a blanket phase like this:

Absolutely madness.

Visa and the like have been given too much power.

Unless ofcourse ePassport have been found to harbouring criminals and other dirty species of the human race? :)

This statement is now gone on Epassporte. I noticed it when logging in a few hours ago, but now its gone.

I read on some adult webmaster sites that it would be fixed within 24 hrs...

Sure do hope so or else i am f*cked.

What can you expect from a shady spamming online banking provider..
They take all the trash that the rest don't. Nothing to worry about, was expected.

from what i understand, their bank got fucked for all kind of shady stuff, so it's not directly epass's fault, hopefully it will get fixed quick, but i won't be keeping a balance there for sure.

No more so than companies like Webmoney who are still around..
