Bank of America's online banking crashes

NEW YORK (AP) - Bank of America says its online banking website crashed Friday, leaving customers unable to access their accounts.
From late morning Friday, customers trying to log on saw a message that said the site was "temporarily unavailable."
Bank of America, the second-largest U.S. bank by assets, said it was working on the problem, but wouldn't elaborate on what caused the outage.
"We're aware of the online banking issue and addressing as quickly as possible," Mark Pipitone, a spokesman for the bank, wrote in an email. We're also working closely with our customers to help alleviate any concerns."
Twitter soon began to fill up throughout the day with comments from angry Bank of America customers that were left frustrated, trying to do their banking on the first day of the month.
