AIB cash machines double debit customer accounts

AIB cash machines double debit customer accounts

Allied Irish Bank (AIB) says some customers who withdrew money from cash machines on Tuesday had their accounts debited twice following a computer glitch.

A spokeswoman for the bank says a technical error resulted in electronic transfer files being sent twice.

AIB says it has yet to establish how many ATMs or customers were affected. The bank is currently trawling the system to identify victims and hopes to reimburse them by tomorrow.

It looks as though AIB has now worked out how many customers were affected - 20,000 (according to the Irish Independent).
