Another Snafu At Prosper

Prosper seems to be having one thing after another nipping at them. First there was the blast of planned and unplanned outages. Then there was the lender uprising that was contained before the forums were entirely shutdown. The latest is that their ACH clearing house (Wells Fargo) had some problems with transactions:

Our banking partner, Wells Fargo, is experiencing technical difficulties with their ACH money transfer system today. This may mean that ACH transfers will be delayed. Here is what you may experience.

As a Lender:
If you transferred money in or out of the system, there may be a delay coming into or out of your bank

In the next week, you may see a “dispute” on a Borrower payment you recently received

As a Borrower:
You may see a delay in either a payment processing from your bank account or, if you are getting a loan, a delay in obtaining the loan money

As a Member:
If you are setting up a new account with Prosper, the bank account verification may be delayed in setting up the new challenge deposits

We anticipate this problem being resolved in a timely manner and will post an update here as soon as we know more. You may also receive an email with this notification.

In all fairness to Prosper, this was a Wells Fargo problem. It affected ATM's and all sorts of other bank transactions.

True, but they just don't seem to be getting the breaks recently.
