No plans to freeze accounts and transactions – Steward Bank

A message doing the rounds on social media suggesting there would be changes to Steward Bank services has been dismissed by the bank as ‘malicious.

Ceci est une fake news

In a statement, the Econet owned bank said:

Please be advised that contrary to a malicious message circulating on social media, Steward Bank has no plans to restrict, freeze or limit customer transactions in any form and for any period as suggested. Whilst we have experienced some intermittency with our RIGS platform due to an increase in the volume of transactions being processed, all our platforms are fully functional with our customers transacting as normal. Customers are advised to ignore this fake announcement and when in doubt contact the Bank through our contact centre.

The things people spread on social media.
