Wells Fargo experiencing widespread outages affecting ATMs and mobile banking

"We're sorry some of our customers may continue to experience an issue with our online banking and mobile app".

Customers of Wells Fargo are having problems accessing their accounts and the company is admitting it's having issues with its online banking and mobile app.

CNBC reported that the incident happened at a data center in Minnesota at around 5 a.m. CST and was under control starting at 9 a.m. Wells Fargo tweeted that the issue was causing outages and it was "working to restore services as soon as possible". "We apologize for the inconvenience", Wells Fargo spokesperson Jennifer Langan told ABC News. For instance, it said consumer credit card and mortgage balance weren't yet working.

Wells Fargo has dealt with a string of controversies in recent years.

Many customers are upset because Friday is the most-used pay day by employers and many customers are expecting their IRS income tax refund direct deposits.

At this time, it's unclear about the scope and breadth of the problem or how many customers or locations were affected. "U giving me my $45k earnest $ back?" one Twitter user wrote to Wells Fargo.

'Thank goodness I don't need money this morning for anything!' one Twitter user quipped.

The company said customers should check Wells Fargo social media for updates on the outage.

Wells Fargo plans to reduce its workforce by up to 10% over the next three years in order to meet customer needs and improve operations.
