UseMyWallet Closes by Court Order

May 27, 2011

A popular electronic wallet, Quick Tender, otherwise known as UseMyWallet has been shut down indefinitely. Quick Tender was used by many online poker and casino players based out of the US to fund their online poker and online casino accounts. They made a formal announcement via their website and sent out a more personal email to their users.

The website notice stated, “With regret, the Quicktender service has been discontinued. All account holders will be notified by e-mail.”

More detail was disclosed in the email to account holders. The company suggested that they were forced to close down by court order and that bank accounts were frozen.

The email read:

“Further developments specifically relating to our main bank processing company have resulted in our accounts being frozen subject to a seizure order giving us no ability to make payments in any currency.

“In light of these developments we have had no option but to discontinue the Quicktender service with immediate effect and for the foreseeable future. At this time we are unable to confirm when or if we could make payments of remaining balances.”
Just days after the US Department of Justice seized another 10 domains and forced the closure of two online betting companies via more indictments handed down for illegal gambling operations and money laundering, Quick Tender is yet another victim.

The DOJ had served two indictments that closed down Canada’s ThrillX and Cyprus’ BMX Entertainment, the owners of the 10 online websites that shut down including, TruePoker, BetEd, and, among others. In addition, 11 bank accounts based in Charlotte, North Carolina; Malta; Panama; Guam; and Portugal were seized.
