BREAKING NEWS: Reports that ALL Wal-Mart servers are down for banking transactions. Anonymous claims responsibility!


This information appeared on the the social stream at theother99.tv

Looking for confirmation.

Am also finding reports that Safeway servers are down.

Maybe they are being treated to an early blackout for SOPA/PIPA, eh?

Can anyone confirm this? Thanks in advance...

I was just at Walmart, buying a bunch of stuff made in China and my check card transaction went through without any problems.

Inquired about a store in question and was told transactions are fine.
One of your sources
states as not consistent in all places. Well, must hold true for that at least? Will see what else I can find...

Just went to Wal-Mart to get a few last minute things for dinner.

They were only accepting cash. Luckily that's how I pay for things anyway.

St. Louis area here.

But there were a lot of full shopping carts just left near the doors...assuming credit card users who had no cash.

Actually been there twice today. Took debit without issue both times. It was either fixed by 2 m.p. central time as I am in Missouri, or it was limited to certain stores.

The source was posted about 1 hour ago, so those that shopped, were you there before the last hour or so?

Curious.

Happy ATS anniversary, OP. 4 year member today!

I was there two (2) hours ago.

St. Louis Missouri.


It seems to be hit and miss as to who/where was affected.

Yeah 2 hours south of St. Louis had no issues. At least the one in this town, not sure about the one the town over.

I've heard they are having problems in Texas, not sure where in Texas it was on Twitter.

Went to Safeway today and no cards were able to process. Debit or credit. Teller said that it was Global?

I'm assuming that she meant all Safeway outlets but then I seen this thread.

hmmmm

I called the nearest Walmart down the mountain from me...Dahlonega Ga. They said they just came back up a few minutes ago. Were down for a couple of hours. Told me, they were told it was phone line problems.

End of my report.
