    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Cyber terrorists may be going after big U.S. banks.

    Many people had trouble checking their Bank of America accounts online in September. and now, more issued have been reported.

    Bank customer Amanda Medina said, "It's quite terrifying."

    Wells Fargo said it hasn't had any problems and added, "We constantly monitor the environment, assess potential threats, and take action as warranted."

    Bank of America had not responded to WSOC by 4 p.m. Tuesday.

    Cyber security expert Jeff Spivey says you should make sure you know what information your bank asks for online so you know if something is unusual.

    He said, "You as a user, or anyone as a user, would want to make sure that they are educated well on what is normal and what is not normal."

    Bank customer Eli Nutter said, "If it's that simple then I hope it's not that simple for somebody else."
