Fire Causes Wells Fargo Customers to Lose Access to accounts

Fire Causes Wells Fargo Customers to Lose Access to accounts

Wells Fargo tweeted that the issue was causing outages and it was "working to restore services as soon as possible".

An hour later the company posted about the problem again, but offered no timetable on when it would be fixed.

This is the second time in a week Wells Fargo has experienced technical issues.

San Francisco-based Wells Fargo, the nation's third-largest bank, can't seem to catch a break when it comes to its customer service issues over the last few years.

CNBC reported that the incident happened at a data center in Minnesota at around 5 a.m. CST and was under control starting at 9 a.m.

Other customers were joking that the system outage was helping them spend less money.

Customers complained on social media that they could not get into their Wells Fargo accounts online all morning, and some learned the hard way when their cards were declined.

Wells Fargo is reporting a nationwide outage on its website and mobile app.

The company on Twitter apologized to its customers and asked for patience while it once again sorted out the issue. As a result of the fire the servers had to be shut down, the bank employee reportedly said.

Wells Fargo did not immediately respond to FOX Business' request for additional details.
