Reporting on the upcoming Friday at 9 broadcast, RTP (the channel Friday at 9 is broadcast on) then broke the news that Portuguese police had opened up a criminal investigation into the company:

The text in the blue box reads “PJ is investigating the business and responsible Geteasy” (auto-translate).
Friday at 9 later confirmed the investigation on their Facebook page:
At this stage there has been no official announcement from Portuguese police regarding the investigation. Nor is it clear whether there will be one, as regulators usually do not comment on ongoing investigations.
We’ll have more after the Friday at 9 broadcast takes place (9pm Friday the 24th, UTC +00:00).
