Latest Bank ‘Glitch’: Largest Russian Bank Halts All Credit/ Debit Transactions

RBS’ NatWest, whose banking ‘glitch’ (which began only days after RBS’ downgrade) is now nearing 3 weeks with officials now stating accounts will not be functioning until the end of July!
It appears that either NatWest’s IT problems have gone viral, or else Sberbank has also been impacted by margin calls/ liquidity concerns, as the largest Russian bank has halted credit and debit card transactions due to an ‘IT glitch’.

Interfax reports:

RUSSIA-SBERBANK-CARDS-MALFUNCTION MOSCOW. July 6. (Interfax) – Sberbank of Russia (RTS: SBER) has suspended credit and debit card operations due to a technical malfunction, the bank told Interfax. “All cards are not being serviced,” it said.

Something tells us that Irish and Russian physical gold and silver holders are not experiencing ‘IT glitches’ evaporating their holdings.
