Wells Fargo's Network Goes Down For 24 Hours, Customers Sad, Broke

Some of Wells Fargo’s customers experienced an service outage that lasted about 24 hours, according to the Associated Press. Affected customers were unable to get cash or use their debit cards.

From the S P-I:

San Francisco-based Wells Fargo would not say how many customers or machines were affected but acknowledged that services were down throughout the company — from personal banking and Wells Fargo corporate Web sites and ATMs to the processing of mortgage and student loans.

“Customers may continue to experience transaction difficulties or delays in our stores, at ATMs and at the point-of-sale … and processing for some mortgage, home equity, student loans and remittances,” Wells Fargo spokeswoman Julia Tunis said. “Our systems teams are working to fix those problems and we hope to have all channels fully available soon.”

If you have a Wells Fargo account you might want to drop by a teller to get some cash for the next few days while they get this stuff ironed out.
