How can they do that? That is quite misleading for new customers who have no clue of the current situation. Newly deposited funds will be probably only used to reduce losses for existing accounts. It's like they're taking part in the scandal.
It would be better for the trustee to place a notice on the site and divert any attention to the necessary links/emails for resolution. But as with any business failing, much less one this sudden, and with fraud involved, things get a little messy. I understand there's a skeleton crew but they would most likely be doing forensic accounting now.
Their accounts have most likely been frozen by court order and any deposits would probably be bounced back by the banks administering to them.
Tried searching on google but haven't found anything yet. But that's a disastrous business model anyways for a company which is knowingly buying accounts with an unknown value! Who really knows how much the accounts still worth? (if anything)
It's not necessarily a bad business transaction. You never know, the buyers may be privy to how much the company accounts hold. And client funds rank above secured creditors. Of course, in this particular case, if $5mil is what was left of the declared $220mil client funds account, it's not a stretch to say that there isn't much money left in the company accounts either.
