    Hi Guys,

    Avoid using your AIB cards at the moment, AIB are having major issues.

    People have tried to use their cards a few times but it kept saying the card was declined. However they then noticed the money was taken out of their accounts multiple times. They rang AIB and have been informed there is an issue at the moment and not to use your cards at the moment.

    This is all over twitter etc. AIB have confirmed issues.

    Please let your families know not to use their cards too.

    PS - I am not sure if this is the right forum for this.

    Issue has just been announced on the Radio, Allied Irish Bank confirms issue. If you ring AIB you will get a notice on the phone saying "We are aware of an issue".

    I am not making it up.

    Collegue spoke with AIB, according to them it is now only affecting Visa Debit Cards so seems Credit Cards are ok, but I am going to hold fire.

    I am not suggesting you are making it up but rumours can grow legs and unless I see a published source or hear it for myself on a public radio station I am naturally dubious.

    I just rang phone banking and there was no notice? Do you mean if you ring your branch?

    that's funny I've been having that exact problem with my BOI card, double charges appearing on my online banking etc, and It keeps being declined, in all instances where the BOI one was declined (despite being money in the acc) my AIB card worked!

    The branch IVR states there is an issue before passing you through to an agent.

    Maybe this is the start of the bail in.

    This happened to me yesterday with my BOI debit card. The card came back with an error after making the payment. They were going to ask me to pay again when the receipt showed the transaction had gone through. It was odd but I could have ended up paying twice over.

    I alsp would like to know: is this just on ATMs or does it affect shop card readers?
