BB&T says 'technical issue' impacting online, ATM services

BB&T bank customers can't access accounts due to 'technical issue'

An outage map showed areas like Virginia, central Florida, northern Ohio, Maryland, north Georgia and Pennsyvlania being affected on Friday.

Company officials say they're willing to work with customers who experienced any issues related to this outage.

"Customer frustration and anger appears to be growing by the hour on social media, as the bank vaguely blamed "an equipment malfunction in one of its data centers" for the outage".

The bank restored service by 11:30 Friday morning.

Last week, some TD Bank customers were unable to use online and mobile banking after the Canadian-owned bank ran into technical trouble while upgradings its software. Customers will still be able to use BB&T debit, credit and prepaid cards, the bank said.

Still, consumers have fired off angry tweets because of problems caused by the outage.

The company's website said many of its other banking services were down as well, including digital banking and Phone24, meaning customers couldn't pay bills or check their accounts. "We will continue to provide updates here and on", officials with the Winston-Salem-based bank wrote Thursday night on Twitter. The bank said balances and transactions will become current later in the day.
