Capital One technical issue prevents customers from accessing direct deposits, accounts

Capital One said Friday it was experiencing a technical issue that has prevented some customers from receiving direct deposit paychecks and being able to access their accounts.

The company confirmed the issue in a tweet, stating that it was “actively working to resolve the issue.”

“Capital One is experiencing a technical issue impacting customer money movement, including direct deposits, and the ability for some customers to access accounts,” the company said. “We are actively working to resolve the issue and restore all services. We greatly apologize for the inconvenience.”

The glitch was reported on the first day of the month, which is also on a Friday and likely a payday for many. According to the website DownDetector, Capital One customers started reporting issues early Friday morning. 

In July, the credit card issuer announced a data breach involving about 100 million people in the U.S. and 6 million customers in Canada.
