My visa with Fulton Bank got declined multiple times, same with my parents. The money is there but it didn't work. Ended up needing to use PayPal debit card to do my purchase.

Re: BREAKING- Nationwide Cash Failure? US Direct Express
I live in CA. It is common knowledge that if you dont want to work, sit on your ass and get paid that you apply for SSI and fake a mental illness. ALOT of people I know do this. It pisses me off. We are paying money for drug addicts to get high, not take care of they're kids. I hate this state. Your better off smoking pot and playing video games and letting the hard working people of America bust they;re ass so you can sit at home. Oh and none of these people are mentally ill, they just say they are to get benifits from the county/state/Government..ect

So this is effecting thousands and thousands, if not millions of Amercians and there is a media blackout about this? Little to no updates or info from any media sources? Really gives insight into how the people are looked upon and NOT served by their government. At best, this should not happen, at worst, they should be informing everyone of what the problem is and what they are doing to correct it AND compensate those who are being affected.

This is like the bank website outages we've experienced recently.

And for what it's worth, "V" on H and H said this would keep happening, and that it's not an accident or "computer problems".

Bad feelings about this...

Re: BREAKING- Nationwide Cash Failure? US Direct Express
I made a post about this two weeks ago. My credit union started declining my visa transactions in retail settings. ( grocery stores, malls, etc) for no reason at all. The only way I could use "my money" was to use a pin.

Finally after weeks of embarrasment, I called them. I was told a lot of fraud is occuring and they are declining all transactions over fifty dollars to "protect" my account.

Ordinarily I would be happy. Unfortunately, It declined 14.99 at home depot the other day. I come from a banking background, so I know B.S when I hear it.

WE are out of money, and now out of CREDIT as well.

we are in big trouble.

I'm in NY state and my card now works at the store and gas station, but it still won't work at the ATM or to pay a bill by phone. I wanted to pay my cable bill by phone but the transaction won't go through. I guess they will just have to wait for their money! Not my fault!

Re: BREAKING- Nationwide Cash Failure? US Direct Express
I wonder if this is having any bearing on what is occurring today:

IMPACT: Treasury to open Comerica deal to new bids after CPI report

The U.S. Treasury has agreed to consider hiring a new vendor when a controversial deal with Comerica bank to issue debit cards to beneficiaries of federal programs expires in 2015.

Comerica has an exclusive contract to issue Direct Express cards, which Treasury uses to deliver Social Security and other benefits to people who do not directlly deposit benefits into a bank account.

Treasury decided to solicit fresh bids and consider changing bank partners because of concerns that were first raised publicly in a report last week by The Center for Public Integrity, according to two people with direct knowledge of the matter. They spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid souring their relationships with Treasury.

CPI reported that Comerica won the original deal in 2008 by offering to provide the cards at no cost to taxpayers. About two years later, Treasury quietly amended the contract to add tens of millions in new payments to Comerica. The bank had complained that it was having trouble profiting under the financial terms to which it originally agreed.

Re: BREAKING- Nationwide Cash Failure? US Direct Express
From what I know of this, this outage is likely caused by the installation of the kill switch, a centralized control mechanism to turn off access to bank accounts. During the installation of the switch in the UK a few months ago, people had their accounts zeroed out for a day or so, if I recall.

I don't think this is the end, but this looks like the step before the end. Would really hate to lose power in this 100+ heat...
