An unexpected outage left hundreds of Commonwealth Bank customers without access to their money on Friday night.

Customers are spamming the bank with angry messages on social media after discovering they were unable to log into online banking.

‘Error, we are currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please try again later or call us on 13 21 21,’ the message read.

‘We’re aware some customers may be having difficulty accessing our services. We are urgently investigating and apologise for the inconvenience to your Friday evening. We will continue to update you here,’ Commbank wrote.

The bank suggested the error had been resolved an hour later, but not in time for some residents needing access to their cash in Victoria.
