People trying to pay for goods and services haven’t been able to do so with laser or credit cards for THREE DAYS.
And in a world where cards are fast replacing cash as the chosen method of payment, it’s causing serious hardship for businesses.
“We have had to turn people away,” said one angry Dungloe businessman who contacted donegaldaily.com.
“I’ve called the bank several times but they just say they are working to repair their systems.
“It just shows how important card services are….we’ve lost an awful lot of business. And it has been hugely inconvenient for customers who have had to go to the post office to withdraw cash.”
Even local petrol stations have had to erect ‘No Cards’ signs.
But a breakdown in such services in not unusual.
