Bank Story - For What It's Worth
Never thought I'd post a bank story, but here goes - take it for what it's worth.
We cashed out another asset last week to tide us over until "the big one." The bank (one of the big four) said the funds would post at midnight on Monday night. She checked on-line this morning (Tuesday) and it hadn't posted.
She couldn't connect to our advisor via phone so she went to the branch to find out why. Another banker told her the computers had been down all morning and had just come back up. He also said that all the banks on that street (3 of the "big four") had their computers down all morning and they had just come back up and that it hadn't been a power problem.

This wasn't our regular banker, but we used him to set up a non-interest-bearing account last week. This morning he asked why we opened another account when we already had 4. My wife said that we were hoping for a substantial investment to mature and that we needed a non-interest-bearing account for temporary unlimited FDIC coverage under the Dodd-Frank act.
He asked what the investment was and my wife declined to tell him. He said, "Bet I can guess...dinar?" He DIDN'T give the "it's a scam" speech. He said that he'd been hearing about dinar a lot lately. Hopefully he was hearing about it in bank training sessions.
