It has been alleged that StormPay's credit card merchant account has been suspended as a result of accepting payment for merchants who provide products and services that are questionable under that bank's policies and as a result it has caused an alleged "run on the bank" with StormPay unable to payout tens of millions owed on pending withdrawls.

It has been further alleged that they have been freezing accounts on obscure and possibly non-existant TOS violations in order to try to stop this "run on the bank." More serious allegeations go as far as to claim that StormPay was seen moving their office into UHAUL trucks just a couple days ago.

The general concensus among members is that any funds currently in StormPay accounts will not actually materialize if one attempts to withdraw.

None of this is confirmed to be proof, it is very clear that something very unsettling is going on over there as they've turned off the ability to fund accounts via credit card and canceled recent transactions funded by credit card.

For more information see: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=484006

At least there is PayPal!

Adam

Wow, our offices are about 45 mins away from Stormpay's (Clarksville, TN) Maybe I should make a quick road trip tonight. Our stormpay funds are not available now. Maybe I should ask them to pay me in cash? *sighs*

Any third party processor runs this risk unfortunately if they do not monitor thier clients. StormPay was like this as well as Ikobo.

If you are in the United States / Canada and doing more than $1,000 a month, a merchant account is usually better for you in the long run.

SP is probably the worst 3rd party CC processor you could ever use, it didnt take me long to stop using them, I always get the feeling of a shady operation everytime I visit their website.
I've heard lots of horror stories about them, and one of those stories happened with a friend of mine, so I believe them, STAY AWAY from SP!

Stormpay started to hit the internet by storm since late last year and I am one of the victims and if they close, I would say that good for them coz they deserve to disappear in this industry coz if they keep on staying, then more people might be victims, especially those who haven't known anything about them yet. Yes, we've lost but we can't do anything about it and the least we can do is prevent another happening that would victimize others.
