Users are taking to social media to express frustrations over issues with CIMB banking system on Sept 4. — AZHAR MAHFOF/The Star

CIMB took to social media to reassure customers that their teams "are working to bring our systems back to normal" after "experiencing some technical issues", and to apologise for any inconvenience caused to customers trying to access its banking services today (Sept 4).

The issue first came to light when companies like Malaysia Airlines and Shopee issued statements on their respective social media platforms informing CIMB users about a technical issue related to the card payment system. Users were then urged to use online banking portal CIMB Clicks or other payment methods.

However, it seems that users are also facing issues with CIMB Clicks. One user who goes by the handle @Mergana7 shared a screenshot detailing System Downtime information on the website, which appeared to state that the online banking portal will be inaccessible for users until 7pm today.

Another user with the handle @LordPejal also uploaded a screenshot showing that there is a problem with website access. In a statement to another user, CIMB claimed that CIMB Clicks is "working as usual". It advised the user to "clear cache history" in their web browser before accessing CIMB Clicks.

Meanwhile, other users are claiming that other CIMB banking services like the ATM are affected by issues as well.

This is the second time in recent weeks that CIMB is reportedly facing issues with its banking system. On Aug 26, CIMB announced via its social media platform that it was experiencing technical issues with CIMB Clicks. Then on Aug 28, it announced that the portal was operating as usual.

The Star has reached out to CIMB for a statement.
