A Wells Fargo customer tipped us off this morning that his personal bank account at WellsFargo.com has been unreachable since Thursday night. Many Twitter users are making the same claim. Search #wellsfargo to see the history of complaints.

A Wells Fargo customer service representative told our source over the phone that the outage affected half of what the employee said were the bank’s 8 million online customers.

Service has just now been restored, around 11 A.M. Pacific time.
