Went online today to check my account balance and found the following message on my account page:

Some transaction descriptions dated 3/3/99 may be blank or appearing as SPECIAL SERVICES. We are working to resolve this issue and anticipate accurate descriptions to appear shortly. We apologize for the inconvenience.

No way to tell at this point if Y2k related or not - but in many years with Wellsfargo, never ever got this message before.

Bruce Webster mentioned that financial slipups are starting to occur already, and he thinks they might be Y2K related, since he's noticed an unusual number of them. Who knows...

Got this email from my ISP a few days ago, my first notice of an error that actually admits it's because of Y2K. (I've had several banking errors the past several months, money disapearing and reapearing, but they wouldn't say it was Y2K related.)

During our effort to upgrade to year 2000 compliance an error was generated after processing the credit cards. The cards processed normally to the bank however, our system rejected the cards. When this happens for any reason an automatic notice is sent via e-mail. We do apologize for the error generated during our year 2000 compliance upgrade.

Any notice received dated 3-2-99 should be ignored.

Thank you,

FishNet Billing Department
