Kauppalehti reports that Fiksuhuuto, the cent bidding website that we wrote about over here, is under police investigation due to possible misuse of the Finnish lottery law.

The Interior Ministry’s spokesperson Jouni Laiho has told Kauppalehti that they believe Fiksuhuuto is in the lottery business and due to this they are investigating the claim. We had a lot of debate about this last time in the comments and seems the government shares your views on this.

Update (@5.21 pm): Helsingin Sanomat reports, that the company has moved its headquarters to England and are running the company from a server on Malta.
