So just making this quick post regarding the issue with BPI. Let me clear this out first that this was not a hack or a system breach, but due to an internal system error. It looks like their system picked up the wrong transactions when it ran a batch process yesterday.
So what happens?
Any transaction you made between April 27 and May 2 was recorded twice. This is why people are seeing negative account balances or even additional funds in their accounts.
BPI apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused to their clients and promises to have the issue resolved today.
Their president gave his assurance that everything will be corrected and that no one will lose money from this. He also advised that if you have any extra amounts due to the glitch, to not spend it as it is not yours. Please do note that this is a serious matter where the bank’s reputation may be at stake, so I don’t think they’ll let this slide and make you get away with withdrawing a few extra cash.
