Citibank, the country's largest bank, saw intermittent outages to its Web site Tuesday that prevented an unknown number of customers from accessing their accounts.
"Earlier today we experienced an issue that has resulted in intermittent customer access to Citibank.com," the company said in a statement. "As we are addressing this issue, some users are experiencing slow response times. We hope to be operating normally shortly.
A customer service representative of the bank, a division of financial services powerhouse, said the issue began this morning and that the glitch has prevented customers from paying bills or performing any banking chores.
A bank spokesman did not disclose what caused the malfunction.
