The An Post Currency Card For Foreign Exchange Has Been Suspended

It cannot be used until further notice

In a statement last night the postal service said the UK financial regulator has told Wirecard Card Solutions to cease all regulated activities.

This means the 50,000 currency cards in use cannot now be used by customers in Ireland or abroad.  

The card is a prepaid MasterCard that allowed customers buy 16 different currencies. 

An Post said it "regrets this inconvenience to our customers and we are working to ascertain what impact this situation will have on customers who hold an An Post Money Currency Card".

No other services are affected.

Impacted customers are advised to keep an eye on the An Post website.
