Just an FYI
Part of Ulsterbank's back end systems are down.
Payments of any description to and from Ulsterbank accounts are not working and account balances are not up to date.
The problem is nationwide on both sides of the boarder.
Problem occurred during the night but was only picked up by Ulsterbank at 8am this morning.
Ulsterbank do not know when the issue will be resolved.
They have only now updated their website:
Any update on this peeps?
what happens to regular payments in and out on a wensday ? will they still show up once this issue is fixed
There is no change to reg payments etc, only online effected.
Hmmm...does that mean my salary will be in? Not seeing it at the ATM
Has caused embarrassment to people expecting money today.
I am having Ulster bank rage.
It's not just payments, every fecking thing is affected.
I was waiting on a replacement debit card, got it to today, tried to activate it online - "Sorry this service is temporarily unavailable'.
Went in to my branch to take money out, 'Sorry the system that lets us do that is not working'. Me 'So I can't even get money out of my account?'
Teller 'Well you can at the ATM". Me 'Well I can't because my card isnt activated and it wont let me do it onlne. Can you activate my card here '.
Teller: "Sorry our system that's let us do that is down'.
Me: Rage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Couldn't even get any money out for food!!!!!
It is an unbelievably **** position! Was talking to a customer care person and they said UB are running their system routine between 1-3 am ... Hopefully it goes off without a hitch
ATM wasn't working either. Their customer care team were pretty abrupt as well which didn't help the mood. That said, given the abuse they have probably had to put up with I guess I can understand.
What's really frustrating me is the fact that they are quite happy to send out text me about various things but they have zero interest in keeping their customers updated. No regular updates on their site, no estimated ETA, nothing. Incredibly poor. The way they have downplayed it is also ridiculous. .. "some services are unavailable"....pfffft
Ulster Bank the most incompetent organisation I have ever had contact with. Only joined a month ago and the list of things that have gone wrong, people not knowing procedures, giving conflicting advice or even wrong advice, nothing surprises me at this stage even after a month
Money was available in branch so not sure what happened there. Still, good have done a far better job keeping folks informed of what was happening.
I called into the branch around one pm (midlands) and he said the system that lets us withdraw money over the counter wasn't working then. He said they were literally only taking lodgements.
And then when I was at the ATM trying my card as the guy on the customer service on the phone said to try it once, the woman in front of me was exclaiming that she had selected 40 euro and had only received 20 euro.
What could have affected the bank at such a large level?
