All I ever seem to write about at the moment is the bank. I do apologise that the blogs got so boring recently!
My wages did finally clear, the bank still has no idea what I will be charged for going overdrawn, and still can’t explain how the bank let it happen. Telling me I had money AVAILABLE when apparently I didn’t.
But my wages finally arrived and I was happy. Until today. Seems their whole system has gone down. I tried logging onto my internet banking to check my balance but was told;
Very helpful. No information, no announcements on the site, no emails. I called up and was told they are having maintenance on the website which would take an hour and the gentleman kindly told me my balance. I ran to the cash point to withdraw and after waiting about 5 minutes receive a message that the bank cannot be contacted. Why he couldn’t have mentioned that on the phone too, I don’t know.
Hopefully the maintenance WILL only take an hour but if you’re a banif customer unable to withdraw YOUR money or get online- rest assured it’s not just you! I do have a niggling feeling though, after working in technology and internet fields for so many years, that the maintenance will definitely NOT only take an hour. Internet banking is annoying but not being able to access your money? Crippling!
