Dutch ING Bank Suffers "Technical Glitch", Clients Report Negative Balances

Tyler Durden's picture





 

UPDATE: Another Dutch bank - Rabobank - is apparently having 'technical' issues now

Following yesterday's discussion of the brink-like nature of the Dutch economy (and banking system), it is perhaps just a coincidence that ING is suffering from a major failure in its Internet Banking. It is unclear how many customers are affected but judging by the scale of responses on Twitter (#ING) it is widespread. Some customers are reporting overdrafts, and incorrect balances; and are reporting cards not working at supermarkets. We are sure this will just bolster confidence in uninsured depositors at the bank - especially since, as Ad.nl reports, no one at ING was reachable for comment.

All these little banking glitches all over the world are just test runs for a false flag "cyberattack." They also come in handy when a bank just needs a few seconds to a few days of breathing room, so their depositors can't spend or withdraw their money while the Illuminati get it all sorted out. Not an official bank holiday, but a bank holiday nonetheless.

A) Incite bank runs to flush savings out into the economy and cause some chaos

B) Call for "electronic currency" to replace hard currency to prevent future bank runs

C) Fake a few cyber attacks to justify clamping down on the internet to protect electronic currency

D) Fuck us all up the ass

Old news. The glitches are from by a discontinuity in time/space caused by the extreme concentration of darkness in the major banks. It makes the computers occasionally report what the balances WILL BE in the future after the Ponzi ends instead of what they are today. Just move the servers away from the vortex of evil and the problem will be solved

That is exactly what banks do every day. Didnt you ever wonder why you get credits, or fees waived, or points for doing things like bill payments through your bank, or direct deposit? There is a time for check clearing, transaction fullfillment, and other times when the money is neither in your account, or the person/entity you are making a payment to. The banks use this time/money for profiting. Its BAU in banking.

Yea sure is funny how there's apparently some 'glitch' in banks computers where your account can just suddenly show -0- and no one is supposed to be concerned and go on trusting them? This should be IMPOSSIBLE...there are backups to these programs, and it's not a 'glitch' that your account shows '0 dollars sorry try again later'...they're planning the takedown.

this has been a test of the emergency deposit confiscation system.

had this been an actual confiscation, this message would have been followed by official instruction, including, but not limited to, bank holiday announcements, explanations of capital controls, announcements of martial law and riot police/ troop deployments and whatever other other actions might be taken in order to ensure a smooth transition of your private property into the hands of foreign banker troika members.

this concludes the test of the edcs, where we remind you as always, your money is your money, at least until we need it.

Doubt it, probably the transaction journal got run on the account twice and credits/debits got duped. Consumer Banking systems are fairly simplistic systems, they take a start of day balanace, load it to an intra day day tansactional system, and then run an end of day process to post the intraday activity back to the system of record. Thats why there is something called an intraday balance. Its the balance before your transaction journal is "posted" to your account.

Over here in rainy old England, RBS has had two cashpoint/ATM failures where noone could make withdrawals from their accounts,explained away as a software problem.

RBS being the most insolvent of the UK banks would draw suspicion that it is actually f*****g insolvent to such a degree it cannot even find the readies for ATM's never mind a good old bank run,but I would never say that.

I'll just wait for the big "Bank Holiday" coming soon to a High Street near you,but then it will be too late,never mind -Mark Carney will solve the problem of solvency overnight whe he devalues sterling by 50% later this year,there will be no shortage of notes then eh Mark?

Just an ING IT glitch as they mistakenly put into production the new EU template "Cyprus" tax on their depositors.

ING Direct: "Save (y)our money"

ING has been running non-stop commercials with the "orange dollars" for retirement; the guy who denies himself the new grill, the Wife who pulls an orange bill out of jeans going in the wash - you've seen 'em.

"Oh no, that's my retirement dollars!  Got to save those!"

C'mon ING - make some commercials with the invisible dollars!  People holding up dollars that aren't there!

Tip - bring back the "Invisible Man" taking the real dollars and replacing them with "Invisible Retirement Dollars".  Invisible Man:  "Don't worry, it's there, trust me!  I just sprayed it with my invisibility formula!"

 

P.S. - Hey, so ING being hacked means Bitcoin is totally safe too, right?  "Untouchable!"  "Infallible!"  "Unbreakable!"  "It's math!" - go on, let me hear it.

meh technical difficulties can happen :)

however if it is true that holland is in deep financial trouble, and ing diba (one of the biggest banks in europe) needs financial aid, this shit could get very ugly.

lets see what will happen next.

So simply changing signs can eradicate debt. I knew Banks had reverse Balance Sheets but never dreamed they could alter the polarity as well. I mean how can global debits and credits net out if they pull this stunt ?

Either confiscation of deposits or Russian maffia hack attack.

Putin is going to visit Holland this week. He is going to get some critique on human rights issues. I think this attack is a preemptive answer to that and to Jeroen Dijsselbloem's handling of the Cyprus crisis.

Or just a glitch.

I just closed a small bank account today. Walked away with 6k in cash. Fickers wouldn't even give me a loan because I've never borrowed money and I'm over 60 and have no credit history. Net worth over a mil. It's all so fucking crazy. I hate the bank bastards. I also hate seeing gold and silver get smashed so badly cause that's about all I have aside from a home.

How were we supposed to know the EU was going to merged us with the bank of Cyprus overnight. Last weekend they said it probably wouldn't happen until sometime in May.

They're just practicing for when the big bank collapse hits and they give everyone a negative balance.  Imagine the day when you will have to PROVE to the bank that you actually gave them your money!  It's coming.

The zionist banksters did Cyprus to give people the jitters; so that when anything like this ING event happens people will inevitably draw out money. This type of event will increase in frequency, the withdrawal of deposits will escalate and eventually bring down the Euro banks, then the world. Then they will herald a new global currency, one that is immune to the vagaries of national currencies, in other words: the same shit they said about the euro.
