Just seen this on another forum. I think the main one affected is FairFX, I know a lot of motorhomers use this card.

Check your cards, especially if you're planning to travel soon.

I have a Caxton card with €300 on it. AFAIK they are not affected by this but I have withdrawn it just in case.

We also had 300€ on our Caxton card...and knowing that we wouldn't be likely to go abroad again this year, I let it sit there...on the card...doing 'nowt!

I withdrew it the other week and put it somewhere where it can get (very little) interest.

Pete - just double check your bank account when it gets in there. They put 2 transfers into my account but still underpaid me by £50! I emailed them and got an apology and the money back but I'm still glad I checked!

I had an email from Caxton this morning just distancing themselves from the company that has gone into administration. They confirmed that they are nothing to do with Caxton.
