After the alleged Ponzi fraud, the surprise freezing of accounts and the sheltering of its creditors, Celsius has just warned its customers that some of their emails have been leaked.
“We were recently made aware by our provider Customer.io that one of its employees accessed a list of Celsius customer emails held on its platform and forwarded them to a third party,” reads a message sent to its customers last Thursday evening, obtained by Le Journal.
"We do not consider the incident to pose a high risk to our customers whose emails may have been affected, but we are posting this communication to ensure you are aware," it added.
The icing on the sundae
For the 1.7 million investors unable to withdraw their marbles from their blocked account since mid-June, this incident is the icing on the cake.
A 20-year-old customer who preferred to remain anonymous didn't seem surprised by the latest tile to hit Celsius yesterday.
The student told the Journal that he still hopes to get his $20,000 back by keeping his cool.
"I'm not surprised," conceded the man who says he opted for Celsius when he saw the Caisse de dépôt investing its millions of dollars in the platform.
“It can't be worse than the rest. I am especially looking forward to seeing what will happen with the restructuring. I was leaving my money there for later,” he sighed.
Asked about this yesterday, the Caisse de depot refused to comment on the “day-to-day” operations of its portfolio companies.
Last week, the woolen sock admitted that its $200 million investment in Celsius “is not yielding the expected results”.
“We understand that the CDPQ's investment in Celsius raises several questions. We take this file very seriously and we will comment on it further at the appropriate time, ”we were assured.
Yesterday, Celsius did not respond to our interview request.
