The UK online retailer Gameseek has gone out of business, leaving a raft of unfulfilled orders and disgruntled customers
The Cheshire-based company issued a letter - obtained by Eurogamer - via the corporate financiers Dow Schofield Watts, to customers who had paid for products before it went into voluntary liquidation.
"We are writing to you because, according to the information supplied to us, you appear to be a creditor of [Gameseek]," the letter stated.
The liquidator will be appointed on May 17, 2018, but the Gameseek website is already offline and its Twitter account stopped its previously steady activity on May 3. According to Eurogamer, emails sent to the company's staff respond with "address not found."
A number of angry customers are using Twitter as a platform to voice their displeasure at having paid for products that were not delivered before the company hit the wall. Here's one example, but Eurogamer has many more.
.@GameSeek I've received notification in the post today that you've gone into liquidation. 2 weeks ago I purchased a boxset from you for £28.12. This hasnt arrived & I've received no refund. I will be contacting @eBay_UK to resolve this.— Natalie Ross (@bibliogeek82) May 10, 2018
