Ongoing BB&T outages locks customers out of their bank accounts

"Our systems are currently being restored and our automated Phone24 service and ATMs are now available. At this time, we have no reason to believe this issue is related to cybersecurity".

The bank has stated that the incident doesn't appear to be a cyberattack of any kind, but rather a technical error. A glitch caused JPMorgan Chase's website to display incorrect account information for about three hours on Wednesday, Reuters reported.

The bank responded to customers on Twitter, saying it had identified the problem and was "working to resolve it as quickly as possible".

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

During the outage, bank customers were still able to use debit, credit and prepaid cards at places like the grocery store or gas station.

BB&T said it will work with customers who incurred any fees or experienced any issues directly related to the outage when its systems come back online. We hear your frustration, and we are committed to making this right. "We expect those balances and transactions to become current later today, and we'll continue to provide updates to our clients as that occurs", Davis said.

BB&T says a technical glitch is impacting some of its services Friday afternoon.
