Wells Fargo Online Banking Goes Down, Customers Unable To Access Accounts

(ZeroHedge)

Update3:  Hours later, the system-wide outage at Wells Fargo continues as customers remain unable to access their online accounts. 

The company said in a Thursday tweet: “We’re experiencing system issues due to a power shutdown at one of our facilities, initiated after smoke was detected following routine maintenance. We’re working to restore services as soon as possible.”

Wells Fargo @WellsFargo

We’re experiencing system issues due to a power shutdown at one of our facilities, initiated after smoke was detected following routine maintenance. We’re working to restore services as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Apparently Wells Fargo doesn’t maintain redundant servers at a separate location in case of such incidents…

Update2: After their first attempt to provide people with account access crashed and burned, Wells Fargo is now simply apologizing and letting people know they can go to a branch or an ATM for their banking needs.

The bank has apologized again in a second Thursday tweet:

Wells Fargo @WellsFargo

We’re experiencing a systems issue that is causing intermittent outages, and we’re working to restore services as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Update: Wells Fargo’s homepage now lands on a message which reads “We’re experiencing some technical difficulties”

We apologize for the inconvenience as some of our web pages are temporarily unavaliable. You can still access your accounts through one of the links below: 

Wells Fargo Online® (Personal, Small Business, and Retirement Account customers)
Commercial Electronic Office® portal (Commercial customers)

That said, many who have tried the links provided were met with a “502 Bad Gateway” error.

Wells Fargo’s online banking and mobile app went down Thursday morning, leaving customers unable to access their accounts and conduct banking needs. It is the second time their system has gone down in less than a week.

Wells Fargo @WellsFargo

We apologize to our customers who may be experiencing an issue with our online banking and mobile app. Thanks for your patience while we research this issue. If you are impacted, please check back here for updates.


Spokeswoman Hillary O’Byrne says that the bank is investigating the cause of the outage.

@WellsFargo call #2 and the music just randomly stopped 🤷🏽‍♀️

Bill Roth @BillRoth_

If there’s anything to learn from yet another @WellsFargo server crash: Always carry cash.

It’s like the 1800’s: No ATM’s, no credit/debit cards, no online banking, and no way to cash a check at a branch.

New corporate slogan: “@WellsFargo– It’s like banking in Venezuela”

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
