BANKS WORLDWIDE get ready for the October suprise !!!

Bank oddities

Saturday October 24, 2009 - 7:30 pm

From an IT guy. "I'm a BofA IT worker and can tell you there is a large event going down this weekend.

They're implementing what they're calling the "October Release".

My understanding is that this is a software and systems upgrade which is somehow tied into the FED and their regulations.

If this is a Federal Reserve activity, that would explain why ALL banks and credit unions are involved. We've been on a change lockdown for the past week and threatened with our jobs if we fuck anything up.

We'll have to wait and see what happens on Monday, but I wouldn't read too much doom into this. We do this several times a year".


Here's the list:

On Saturday, October 24, 2009, from 3:00 p.m. ET until 7:00 a.m. ET Sunday, October 25, 2009, Wells Fargo Investments, LLC will participate in an industry-wide disaster recovery exercise which may result in the brokerage website being unavailable for all or part of the event. Please contact us to place transactions if you are unable to access your account online during this exercise. We apologize for any inconvenience and we thank you for your patience.


Found this notice re Chase Bank when I logged in to check my account:

This website will be unavailable Saturday, October 24 from 9 PM ET until around 11 AM on Sunday, October 25.

In addition, some loan information will be unavailable Saturday, October 24 from midnight ET until around 10 AM and again from 2 PM ET until around 3 PM.

(Posted October 19)

SO, is it just some kind of computer reset or or they all changing over to devalued dollars???

From TD Ameritrade: [link to]

"Systems maintenance scheduled for Sunday, October 25

Our systems will be unavailable from 12 a.m. to 2 a.m. ET on October 25 while we perform maintenance updates to ensure continued high-level service for our clients. To speak with a Client Services representative during this time, please call 800-669-3900. We apologize for this necessary interruption"
Oh (Sorry, normally do not swear, but...)

ABN Amro, Huge bank in Holland, with worldwide branches and the likes..

"In verband met reguliere onderhoudswerkzaamheden is Internet Bankieren tijdelijk niet beschikbaar. Wij adviseren u het omstreeks 07.00 uur weer te proberen. Onze excuses voor het ongemak."

In connection with needed (per law?) maintenance, is Internet banking temporarily not possible. We advise you to try again at approximately 7:00 AM. Or excuses for the difficulties.

(Is a rough translation)


Not sure seems to be some sort of major change in the US / European financial systems / relationships which was planned about a month in advance but has been kept very quiet until this weekend. glp was the only place I heard anything about it up till tonight. Whatever it is they are expecting potential civil unrest from it
*note recent posts about armed guards appearing at banks where they have never been before as well it's obviously going to piss people off whatever the hell they are up to

Yes, Rabobank "seems" ok - but ABN AMRO and now also ING Bank NOT!

Gepland onderhoud Mijn ING (25 oktober 1:45 - 6:00 en 26 oktober 3:00 - 6:00)

"Planned maintenance" 25 October and 26 October!

Strange ...

hm odd my bank is closing down for several hours in sweden... could that be a part of it? it has never done so before.

yes it's world wide. Something big is happening with regards to USA bank transfers on a global scale things will never be the same come Monday.

The title of the thread should be changed to notify people of what is happening easier!

In other Slovenia.

I have two accounts...

Personal NLB shutdown soon do to summer-winter time change...

Buisness account ---another bank...actualy the say that banking is going to be completly different after 1.11.09 becose of new European agreemants and new european baking law...


Update from Belgium. I didn't want to take any chances and wanted to withdraw some money before the hours change.

I first went to KBC Bank. They have 2 ATM's inside the bank. Never since I'm a customer have both been empty or not working. I CONFIRM THAT BOTH WERE DOWN. A BIG RED BANNER ON THE TOP OF THE SCREEN, (in Dutch)

"This ATM is not working at the moment, please accept our apologies."

I went to another ATM, there were no 50 euro bills left. Now this is not exactly a surprise. During weekends this ATM quite often gets empty, only it usually happens at the end of the weekend.

2 possibilities: 1) A lot of people withdraw money today. 2) They didn't fill the ATM on purpose.

I withdraw €500 in 20 euro bills.

I wasn't going to post this since this is done once a year or so...but since we have the Emergency Declaration today..I might as well add.

A major bank that has a large regional headquarters in the area sent a batch of employees to their "Disaster Location" which is 70 miles away, in order to fire up and test all the computer systems at that location. They did this the other day.

Like I said, this is done on occasion, but the timing is a bit suspicious. This is a large bank...not an ity-Bity one.

berlin, capital of the teutons

deutsche bank: so far normal access via onlinebanking. no information whatsoever regarding software updts or such and delays caused by this on their national website, nothing, nada. but lets wait and see.

spoarkasse: nothing. all does work.

ing-diba: as in the netherlands, see posts above, no service tonight.

commerzbank: onlinebanking gives me a 404/not found, but this could be related to changes in ownership to federal "umbrella" due to bancruptcy in the wake of last october/lehmann brothers.

will check other banks now. Regarding change to winter time: i have never ever seen any delays or disruptions of service caused by this. we live in 2009, not in the middle ages, every hacker can program a software that can manage this one-hour change.

if this whole blabla on software updates and such is taken as a reason for some downtime then i would say it stinks as noisy as three-weeks-old fish. a little bit too much of coincidence this weekend, on too much areas and levels, for my taste.

wow... amazing:

General Error

Your Commerzbanking-Team

Actually, maybe this is not BS

I just logged into my Chase account in Ohio and got this

"This website will be unavailable Saturday, October 24 from 9 PM ET until around 11 AM on Sunday, October 25.

In addition, some loan information will be unavailable Saturday, October 24 from midnight ET until around 10 AM and again from 2 PM ET until around 3 PM."

The ATM just advised that 'Unable to process at this time' I tried 2 different locations and got similar messages. Then i could not get logged into my online account. i also tried my text hone service and get 'unavailable, try again later or contact during business hours'

I know for a fact 4 hours ago I had $653 in the account with nothing outstanding. Anyone know whats going on???/ this was Wells Fargo

---- Is this maybe related to this ??

THERE ARE MORE.... 1:00 Am

This is really really weird, as a IT admin I can tell you upgrades are not some easy thing you throw together, planning takes weeks sometimes even months, specially in banking systems, I can tell you right now for all IT departments to have this upgrade window at the same time is really really strange, I could see it happen over a month at different times since IT depts have different schedules but all at the same time window on the same day is just wtf, something is going down.

Now somebody tell me wtf is going on here


they are not even regular banks for fucks sake

I've NEVER EVER IN MY LIFE seen anything even REMOTELY close to this go down...

Some highlights from my online acct at Wachovia (now part of Wells Fargo)

>> * Available Balance as of : Not Available

>> We are sorry but we have encountered technical difficulties accessing external Funds Transfer. Please try again later. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Please reference error code 200-137.

My small, no-name credit union is down too.
See what they say here.

So a few hours ago I read this thread, and I thought, okay I'll log into my Wachovia account online and see if there are any alerts.

I log in, everything looks good... my available balance is there, the digits are lookin' good.

So a minute ago, I figured I'd check again...

I log in... where before it said X amount of money was available from my account, NOW IT SAYS:

Available Balance
Not Available
Total : Not Available

A few hours ago, my money was listed where it now says it's NOT AVAILABLE.

What the ...

Huntington Bank (Columbus Ohio) - their website is up, but when I try to log in I get:


"HTTP Error 401.1 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.
Internet Information Services (IIS)"

Never had a problem before without a notice well ahead of time - like "we are going to do some work starting at midnight Saturday night for 4 hours" - maybe once in 5 years,

There is no notice on thier website- If I wasn't attempting to look at an account, I would have no idea there was "a problem" or "work" going on.

Just tried to login to my Wachovia account and this is what I get:


We are unable to access your account information at this time, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Please try again later, or call (800) 950-2296, 24 hours a day, seven days a week for further assistance. Be sure to mention error code ASV-003 when you call

I was an IT tech at First National Bank Of Texas A few years ago. I will add a little speculation in here. First; earlier this year all police and hospitals where federalized. I know this is so because my provider let me know what was going on and the change over to a compatible and faster access issues tied into the chip to be introduced no later than 12/09 for all states. About the switch to Ameros; Well you have me there as when they are planning to adopt this form of monetary system. But there are post's out there and I believe I have a video about how America gave 800 Billion Ameros to the Chinese National Development Bank. Then factor in how they have all in the U.N. have been calling for a new monetary system. Yep! If it looks like shit and smells like shit then it is shit and I feel we are about to be hit with a lot of it. For those poor like me; start getting some quarters as they have some silver content. Good luck to us all.
