Bank error

Bank error in your favour…?

A technical issue that affected the Bank of Ireland’s online banking services allowed some customers to withdraw or transfer more money than they had in their accounts.

The glitch reportedly also added €1,000 to some accounts without explanation. This led to large crowds forming at ATMs across the country, hoping to take advantage of the error.

Some reports suggest that the police were called to calm some situations as some ATMs ran out of cash. The bank has since fixed the problem and warned customers that any excess money they withdrew or transferred will be debited from their accounts.

The bank also apologized for the disruption and urged customers who may face financial difficulties due to overdrawing on their accounts to contact them.

Questions remain – how or even why did this happen?
