Bank Of America Website DOWN: 2010 Outage Affects Online Banking

Posted: Updated:

Is the Bank of America website down for you?

You're not alone. In fact, people have been having problems with the Bank of America website all day, raising fears it may have been the victim of a cyber attack.

The timing has made the problem even greater, as thousands try to log in to check their accounts before the end of the month (Monday is Feb. 1) and pay end-of-the-month bills.

Business Insider notes that the company's Twitter account has downplayed the issue, insisting the site works but is only having problems for some people.

That account, @BofA_Help, has been assuring people via replies that its tech team is hard at work to address the problem.

Some bloggers are already weighing in with their disgust. One blog even claims B of A is having an "online PR crisis" by not properly relaying information and informing consumers.

This isn't the first time Bank of America website has gone down. It happened in September 2008, April 2007, and back in February 2001.
