Attention! ePassporte is not dead, but most likely not alive


In early September, many users of the popular payment system ePassporte received the same letter as follows:

Author: Christopher Mallick, owner,

Dear owners of accounts Epassporte,
We inform you that today, September 2, 2010 12:00 PDT, we were informed that Visa International has suspended granting Visa Program Partner of our bank-St. Kitts Nevis Anguilla National Bank. Your e-Purse ePassporte is still active and will work, except that funds may not be transferred between your Visa card and your electronic purse.

Currently, ePassporte can not issue cards Visa, as well as to provide our account holders the opportunity to withdraw money from ATMs or to make any purchase.

At the moment we do not know the reason why Visa accepted this unexpected decision. We do not understand why such measures were adopted by Visa posts without reason and opportunity to take all necessary measures to ensure that our programs continue to operate as it did for 7 years now.

Once we have more information we will contact you.

In the meantime, rest assured that your money is safe. We deeply regret and apologize for any inconvenience.

EPassporte team is working diligently to rectify the situation.

We ask that you stay with us with us while we work on this issue. Please do not hesitate to contact us through the message center or at our call center if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Thank you,
Christopher Mallick

And indeed, VISA card holders no longer give them the money.

As of today we have to state that the situation is getting worse rather than showing signs of improvement.

Since the Commercial Register of Curacao on October 18, 2010 contains an entry that on Oct. 7, 2010 the company discontinued EPASSPORTE NV, whose director is John Christopher Malik (John Cristopher Mallick). It is obvious that the name of the letter and the registry are not the same, but belong to the same person.

What this means in simple language? This means that the company still exists, but due to the fact that it has not met a number of local legal requirements of its activity is suspended. Pessimists predict that the likely liquidation of the company with the transition of assets to its owner, John Malik, are already on 7 November.

Enterprising lawyers are preparing a class action lawsuit against the company, while at the same time and count how much money was frozen in the accounts of offshore companies. As an example, the next project.

It should be noted that in this situation, filing a class action is the most effective way to protect their rights. In order to apply it is to unite with their brethren in distress and to hire a law firm that practices in Cura?ao. Internet for this provides a good opportunity. As an example, the organization of drowning, trying to save themselves, can be accessed at the following link. The main thing that is worth remembering in this situation, this time over which the chances of getting anything at all diminished.
