Thanks for the pin.

Went to grab a bite and viola!

I do wonder why the entire visa system went down, I want to know which third party.

I mean, usually merchants systems read the cards and batch the purchase if the system goes offline for a short time.

Something isn't right.

Hmmmm nice to know it can all 'go down' at once.

You know, if they want it to.

Oh my, suddenly came to me that the short-calls on JP Morgan silver are probably the reason, since huge holders of their 'paper silver holdings' are seeking their funds in metal.

Re: Visa went down across Canada this afternoon..
Sorry to say...it wasn't just Canada. I was at WallyWorld around 3:50 when my card was declined. Thought the hubby didn't pay the bill. Nope...it was just declined due to software maintenance or upgrade. I called on it. Still, keep an eye on your Visa cards though for weird shenanigans.

It's kind of weird because I don't usually carry much cash but due to unusual circumstance I have more than I have ever carried before. I didn't really mean to do it. I will always remember the hurricane Sandy victims saying that only cash was accepted. And now Visa crashing.....
