    National Westminster have a major problem on authorisation of cards and transactions at the moment - Yesterday was HSBC today it is NATWEST

    So if you are trying to top up with fuel - top up the phone - use a Cash Machine - do the weeks shop etc be aware you may have your transaction declined - it is not a problem with you or your card it is the banking system

    Got to ask if there is some Hackers out there creating chaos ??

    They say they are trying to sort it but have no idea on time scale.


    Just shows how reliant we all are on the Web if someone pulled the plug for 24 hours the world would come to an end [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Be peacefull though[​IMG]

    I suspect not, could be a new version of either VISA or Mastercard being deployed, comms links...Anti Fraud software kicking in..

    Who knows....

    The guy from money box was on TV this morning, evidently there was a glitch in their housekeeping process. There must have been a few people cursing them this morning especially if they were stuck at the petrol pump, or at Tesco's checkout with only the one credit card:Eeek:

    Just maybe they gave all the money to themselves in bonuses and didn't leave any for the likes of you and I.:Doh:

    Only a slight cash-flow problem till someone pays something in.:Rofl1:
