    Wow paurong ang banking technology natin. Imbes na tumulong sa mga tao, kaltas sa bawat galaw ang gagawin. Parang govt na din, lahat ng paraan ay gagawin just to milk more money from the people.

    How about penalizing BPI for every tech fail, to align with customer experience? The mayhem you caused last April of 2019 is unacceptable!
