Wells Fargo / Our website is temporarily unavailable

as of 7:41am 2/7/19 ------------------------------------------- Our website is temporarily unavailable
 

You can still access your accounts through our ATMs, stores, and customer service. Our phone bankers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 

another reason why I am switching to USBank

All banks, and all companies have problems with their websites. For me, with wells fargo webite, problems seem to be few and far between. I do banking through WF, and have a Cc with us banks, and WF website is a whole lot more user friendly.

While it can seem like an annoyance, at least they're providing you with other options OP.

This happens with Chase, BoA, Capital One, etc., so it's not like WF is the only FI that may experience intermittent technical instances during the day.

Yup,

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Apparently they were doing "routine maintenance" and smelled smoke in a facility so they shut power down. Even if this was a data centre, they should've been able to reroute to backup(s). I'm guessing they inadvertently discovered a flaw in their network design Smiley Frustrated (or are blowing smoke about the real reason Smiley Wink

 

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.

Seeing a lot of people saying they're stranded or in tough binds because their debit cards don't work, too. I can sympathize, but it does remind me of some of the best financial advice I ever got, which was basically "don't put all your eggs in one basket, and always have a backup"!

I found a number of articles talking about debit cards which is what I was going off of (here's one):

https://www.wect.com/2019/02/07/wells-fargo-outage-affecting-debit-cards-online-banking-nationwide/

(They also embed some of the people tweeting about their debit cards not working)

 

Online banking was partially working when I tried - I could see some info, but both my credit cards are currently MIA.

My only surprise is that there isn't a topic declaring "Wells Fargo is incompetent" similar to the topic targeting Huntington National Bank just two days ago.

well, thats a good laugh , you made my day!!!

 

Why in the world does the 4th largest bank not have a back up website/Data Center to put online for "outages"?

maybe they are to busy opening fake accounts...oh sorry ...FSRSmiley Wink

 

The Other Poster said about having a Backup account?, I do USBank & Charles Schwab. (I Know Schwab is a Brokerage)

but at least in 20 years, I have never had an issue getting My Money!

and I also Have a Schwab Debit Card.

 

Man, I guess Amex Traveler's Checks will come back in Style ..No?
