Hi,

First message, first forum.

I've lived in Nizhny Novgorod for 3 years. Have never had a problem accessing my American online back account until last week. I have been blocked from access. Called my bank and talked with the IT specialists who found no problems on the bank's end.

Wondering if anyone has recently had a similar experience. Not suggesting cause and effect here but last week President Obama did make it formal in pointing the finger at Russian hackers and high government officials who are sponsoring such activities....makes me wonder and I'm not paranoid...usually.

Sincerely,

Dennis

Try using a vpn and see if you still are blocked.
