Why is it such a big deal? So a gift card site goes under.
Is there more to it? Shady things?

If I was a fed, I'd say it looks like a money washing organization.
But I'm not a fed.

One of the biggest players. One of the more scalable forms of generating points plus profit. Many many people are holding worthless checks for mega amounts of gift cards they sold to him over the past few weeks. If they try to recoup some of the gc value big buyers might find their gcs worthles and if the payment arrangement was not cc they are in trouble. Gonna roil a lot of that market and have an impact beyond that immediate business....
