RBS debit card payments have gone utterly TITSUP

POETS day is in danger for those without cash

By Alexander J Martin, 14 Oct 2016

The Royal Bank of Scotland's debit card system has suffered a TITSUP, that is, total inability to support usual payments.

NatWest has acknowledged the issue, telling complainants: "We're aware of some issues with Debit Card Payments, and are working hard to fix them. Sorry and thanks for your patience."

The Register understands that despite the acknowledgement, which was first made on NatWest's Twitter account shortly after 14:00 BST, RBS staff were first made aware of the issue an hour ago. It is also affecting business customers.

The Register has contacted NatWest for comment but the company had no immediate response. ®
