ALERT: ATMs Stop Working Across Japan, Cause Unknown

Mizuho Bank is reporting that all of its automatic teller machines (ATM) throughout Japan and its Internet transaction system have stopped working.

A spokesman for the bank said the reason for the outage was not known.

The bank will have a further briefing at midnight E.T.

It is unclear if the ATM problem has gone beyond Mizuho bank.

  1. Is it possible that the Japanese are withdrawing money at rates that make the Goverment uncomfortable? Or, are they(government) preventing a run on banks?
