Citizens Bank ‘technical glitch’ blocks access to accounts
PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — Citizens Bank customers have full access to their accounts after a technical glitch on Thursday.
The bank said in a message on Twitter around 2 p.m. that the issue "impacted their ability to process certain transactions and access some online systems."
The exact nature of the problem was not disclosed by the bank.
In response to a customer question to the tweet, the bank said debit cards were not affected. Another customer posted about not being able to get a balance over the phone, and being advised by a customer service representative not to use an ATM card "and that if I tried, the ATM would eat my card."
Service was restored by 7 p.m., according to a message from the bank on its Twitter account.
Citizens Bank has 11 branches in New Jersey.
