When it rains, it pours. On the exact same day that we witnessed the second largest bank failure in U.S. history, Wells Fargo experienced an unprecedented nationwide computer glitch that caused countless numbers of account holders to have “incorrect balances” and “missing transactions”. This is yet another example that demonstrates why it is never wise to put all of your eggs into one basket. If you have all of your money in just one bank, you may wake up one day and find that you are suddenly not able to access any of it. For years I have been telling my readers to spread their assets around, because our banking system is far more vulnerable than most people realize.
In particular, I have never been a fan of Wells Fargo.
It has been embroiled in controversy for years, and now this massive “computer glitch” has happened…
take our poll – story continues below
A NATIONWIDE COMPUTER GLITCH AT WELLS FARGO LEFT IRATE CUSTOMERS WITH INCORRECT BALANCES AND MISSING TRANSACTIONS FRIDAY MORNING, SOMETIMES DIPPING ACCOUNTS INTO NEGATIVE BALANCES.
FUNDS REMAIN AVAILABLE, EVEN THOUGH SOME CUSTOMERS’ DIRECT DEPOSIT TRANSACTIONS WERE NOT SHOWING ON THEIR ACCOUNTS, BANK SPOKESMAN JOSH DUNN SAID.
DUNN DID NOT SAY HOW MANY CUSTOMERS WERE IMPACTED BY THE PROBLEM AND DID NOT PROVIDE A TIME WHEN CUSTOMERS CAN EXPECT THE ISSUE TO BE RESOLVED. BUT HE SAID WELLS FARGO WAS “WORKING QUICKLY ON A RESOLUTION.” AS OF 4:30 P.M. FRIDAY, DUNN COULD NOT SAY WHEN THE PROBLEM WOULD BE RESOLVED.
The number one thing that you should want from any bank is security.
