Wells Fargo fire disrupts processing of Debit and Credit Cards

Wells Fargo customers may have difficulty using their debit and credit cards Thursday.

KULR-8 received a tip from an employee within Wells Fargo with knowledge of the issue.

According to the employee the outage is a result of a fire at the server farm located in Shoreview, Minnesota.

As a result of the fire the servers had to be shut down.

1. Oh noooooo!!!!!!! Just kidding. Surprised the company avoided its corporate duty to ...

back up and support its customers in case of adverse events such as the fire. Makes one wonder why people do their banking w/ Wells Fargo. As soon as something happened, they could have all data traffic routed automatically to another off premises site to process debit and/or credit transactions. The traffic costs would have been pretty well the same (delivering traffic to / from hosts approving / disapproving transactions etc.).

2. But . . . but . . . folksy TV commercials with stagecoaches and gentle voice-overs!

Why this company is still allowed to exist beats the hell out of me.

3. Big money, only reason why. They are still around despite inflating all of those fake

accounts (millions of them) that they (or one of theirs) set up in order to win first place in something or other at WF, probably to inflate that person's personal compensation (which was based upon number of new accounts I bet).
