The extent of accounts hit by the latest glitches is huge. 600,000 transactions across RBS, NatWest, Coutts, a private banking service, and Ulster Bank were lost into a black-hole.
The latest news is that the overnight glitch at RBS has been fixed but the bad news is that payments will not be in accounts until the weekend.
"The actual technical issue that delayed the payments has now been fixed and now we're making sure all of those payments are processed through so that by Saturday everyone will be in the right place," Stuart Hare, managing director of RBS Direct Bank, told Sky News.
Extra staff have been deployed or employed at RBS call centres in order to cut down queuing times.
Last week Chancellor George Osborne vowed to sell the government's stake in RBS even if it was at a loss.
Days ago the Telegraph reported "As good a time as any for Osborne to sell off RBS stake RBS - may or may not get back the amount that rescued the bank, but it doesn’t really matter – the bail-out did its job and it’s a sunk cost."
But do we smell a rat?
Is there more than meets the eye in this latest NatWest glitch-laden crisis?
At the London Mansion House dinner Osborne said the government will sell off 80% of its stake in RBS. But the price of any RBS shares will surely be hit by the latest technical problems.
Is that all part of a bigger cunning plan then to con the general public?
In 2014 RBS was fined "£56m by regulators after a 2012 software issue left millions of customers unable to access accounts."
How much will they be fined this time and what will that do to its share price and company value?
