Have you been trying to get into your Bank of America account all morning with relatively little success? Don't worry, it’s not just you.
As about a million people who are currently angrily venting on Twitter can attest to, BOA’s online mobile accounts are “temporarily unavailable.” With no legitimate explanation as to why, no less.
Bank of America’s did offer a brief statement on the matter to WCVB. (Spoiler: if you were hoping for a an actual reason, you’re in for disappointment):
"We’re aware of the OLB (online banking) issue and addressing as quickly as possible. We’re also working closely with our customers to help alleviate any concerns," the bank said.
Mark Pipitone, a technology and operations spokesman at the bank, said this to the Los Angeles Times: "We're addressing the issue as quickly as possible. We're also working closely with our customers to help them alleviate any concerns."
This comes one day after the company began its "internal image overhaul."
As you would expect, the public has been very forgiving.
