Discovery Bank Clients Shocked By R0.00 Balances
That Time A Glitch In the Matrix Made Discovery Bank’s Clients’ Money Disappear
Few computer systems are without a glitch or two, however, when such a bug hit Discovery Bank it had clients worried all their money had disappeared.
‘their banking app showed they had no money in their accounts’
One Friday evening this month, some Discovery Bank clients were horrified to find that their banking app suddenly showed they now had no money in their accounts. Clients were also unable to draw any money at the ATM or use their cards at petrol stations.
‘Balances were fully restored and clients were soon able to use their cards and transact again’
Fortunately, the glitch seems to only have lasted an hour or so before the situation was addressed. Balances were fully restored and clients were soon able to use their cards and transact again after the problem was identified by the computer guys and sorted out.
Quick reporting to the bank by clients experiencing the issues was key in helping the bank sort things out so swiftly. If you notice strange transactions or notifications coming to your phone be speedy to contact your bank.
