Bank of Ireland reassures customer he'll have $1m from Nigerian prince later today

Ah here.

Yesterday, Bank of Ireland faced a storm after payments were delayed, affecting the wages of many employers who use the bank.

Today, they tweeted that all payments had been processed overnight. Even when The Kenmeister tweeted them about a missing transfer from Nigeria, they were surprisingly sure it would go ahead.

"Still no sign of my $1m from the prince of Nigeria ... must be the bank holiday weekend" he tweeted at them, referencing the oldest spam email on earth.

SD replied, of course, expressing their sincere apologies and guaranteeing that payments made yesterday would arrive - and he should keep checking his account.

Oh dear SD. You really should have seen that one coming.
