This just in from the folks at QT:
"The management of QuickTender would like to give an update on the status of QuickTender account balance.
Contrary to some speculation in the forums here and elsewhere, certain funds
of QuickTender have indeed been subject to a seizure order by the US
authorities. We hope to advise those affected in the near future on the
status of these funds. The funds were withheld from our processor,
ChargeStream Ltd and the action is a matter that is in the public domain.
Whilst not all of our funds are affected, a significant amount has been.
QuickTender is a reputable organisation, and we wish to ensure so far as we
can that our account holders do not lose their funds in our care.
We are looking at how we can release funds to our account holders as soon as
possible, however because of current restrictions we are unable to transmit
any funds in USD.
In order for customers to have their balances refunded, at present they will
need to have a currency account in Euros as we can currently cannot make any
payments into any USD denominated accounts. If you do not have an account
in Euros we would urge you to obtain one in order to receive your funds.
At the end of this week QuickTender aims to advise further on enabling
withdrawal of funds from your QuickTender Account.
Please bear with us in these difficult times as we endeavour to resolve the
situation despite the severe limitations we face."
