How well do you trust your bank?

 
We all know that one of the reasons why we save money is for our future use. And to help us build our dreams, we get help from different banks. 
 
 
But what are you gonna do if your bank account just suddenly lost 5% of the total money saved in your account? Or, you get surprised with the additional 10% in your bank account without depositing any amount? 
 
Weird isn’t it? 
 
Just recently, one of the largest and oldest banks in the Philippines, known as BPI or Bank of the Philippine Island, just had a glitch in their system. 
 
Some netizens posted on their social networking sites, complaining about the glitch on their BPI accounts. 
 
This has come to the office of the bank and they appeared and resolved the problem within the day. 
 
Some clients lost their money and some others had an additional on top of the total of their money saved in the said bank. 
 
The bank explained that some of the BPI holders had an internal data processing error causing their accounts debited or credited twice of their past transaction. 
 
The bank rest assured that they will do something about it right away and they did not give false hopes to their clients.
