In a bank outage like Wells Fargo's, here's what you can do - Tampa Bay Times


Many Wells Fargo customers woke Thursday to find they couldn’t access their accounts— whether to get cash, pay bills or swipe a debit card for gas.

The giant’s online banking and mobile apps experienced apparently widespread outages, and its automated systems and customer service representatives were unable to access detailed account information, according to an automated phone response. “We’re working to restore services as soon as possible,” said Jacob Jordan, Wells Fargo assistant vice president for corporate communications, by phone.

By midday, the bank announced via Twitter that the issues were due to a power shutdown in response to smoke detected during facility maintenance.Later, Jordan said that “any Wells Fargo fees incurred as a result of these issues will be reversed.”
