As you suggest Kevin, the web is full of rumour and speculation today that 'Crown Currency Exchange' (crowncurrencyexchange.com) has ceased trading.
This seems to be based on a message on the company's website saying that they are currently experiencing technical problems with their online ordering system, as well as the fact that phone lines are constantly ringing out or giving an engaged tone. According to the message, while engineers are apparently working on a fix to the online ordering system, customers are being automatically redirected to the company's currency suppliers, 'International Currency Exchange'.
However, a statement on the 'International Currency Exchange' website says that they have not been formally notified of any formal insolvency proceedings in relation to 'Crown Currency Exchange', and adds that they cannot answer any enquiries about that company.
Customers of 'Travel Money Services' (travelmoneyservices.co.uk) are experiencing similar concerns and problems and are also being redirected to 'International Currency Exchange' .
No reliable information is currently available elsewhere, all we seem to have is this rumour and speculation across the web, which obviously must be extremely worrying for everyone waiting for currency orders to be fulfilled. Many customers are reporting the non-arrival of orders which they expected to be delivered yesterday and today.
Hopefully some positive news might be available very soon.
