Bank of Santarder in England accidentally sent 150 million euros to accounts

Thousands of people in England received a surprise gift from the European bank Santander on New Year’s Eve. After a mistake, the bank accidentally transferred 150 million Euros to people’s accounts with 75,000 transactions.

The error at Bank of Santander in the UK occurred when payments from 2,000 business accounts were processed twice. Some employees doubled their wages in payments, while suppliers saw more money in their accounts than they expected.

THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE ERRORS PAYMENTS

Stating that the duplicate payments were due to a ‘timing issue’ that has now been fixed, the bank is now trying to compensate for faulty payments, many of which were made into rival banks’ accounts.

NO MONEY FROM OUR CUSTOMERS’ POCKETS

A spokesperson for the bank said in a statement: “We are sorry for the technical issue experienced. As a result, none of our customers have this money out of their pockets and we will work closely with many banks across the UK to fix duplicate transactions in the coming days.” said.

REFUND WILL NOT BE AS EASY AS THOUGHT

It is stated that while the process is initiated for the return of payments sent to accounts in many rival banks across the UK, refunds from banks may be a problem.

In the statements made by some banks, it was stated that it would be difficult to make a refund if the customer’s account went negative. (Liberty)
