Wirecard shares collapse

Kept, yes, in the short term, but only because the FCA has suspended the Wirecard licence to operate. There’s no risk to the money, just no legal (or at least simple) way to get at it for the moment.

The advice to withdraw is simply to allow people continued access to the the money, not because there’s any risk of losing it (or Wirecard keeping it longer term).

I was quoting ANNA’s own blog post. I got the impression the advice to withdraw was to prevent a cash flow seize-up.

It should technically be impossible for a holding bank to access the funds deposited by other fintechs, but we shall see if that’s true shortly.

So far I don’t think there’s any indication of customer balances being missing. The missing cash is from their operational profits, not customers.

Still it’s early and they’ve clearly been fiddling accounts under the nose of the regulators, so who knows what’s what?

wirecard should lose everything and we should all wave bye bye

Harsh given that there are a number of jobs all of which are attached to lives and families affected by all this.

Good. Educate yourself instead of gleefully celebrating a company’s demise because of a few employees.

I think it’s important to note that I imagine it would have been a very very small % of Wirecard that committed fraud or knew anything about this. The majority of employees were just doing their job

yeah i understand but what i mean is the people should lose there jobs who did know and also stop company’s using them to stop this happening again

I don’t think anyone would disagree with that. I think your original comment may have come across a little differently to that

They didn’t.

well they dont seem to know where its gone

It doesn’t appear to exist. It’s called fraud.

You seem to want to blame everyone in the company for the actions of one or two. Life doesn’t work like that as you’ve already been told.
