Deathwatch - 1,800 Empire Direct Customers Lose Cash
Rotten news for some 1,800 Empire Direct customers who became creditors when the company went into administration recently – they’re unlikely to get their money back.
That’s according to administrator KPMG, who announced that a total of 5,800 customers had orders outstanding with Empire Direct when KPMG were called in last week.
About 4,000 of those customers had paid by a credit card and would almost certainly be able to claim their money back from their card supplier, but it looks like bad news for the remainder who will almost see their cash flushed away with the company.
