http://lightningfield.com/eurotrash/   is a journalist's weblog with correspondents in many eurozone countries.

You want the bad news first? The following gaffes were reported to the Risks Digest by Paul van Keep. See the subject: "Peak time for Eurorisks" at http://catless.ncl.ac.uk/Risks/21.84.html 

* A housing society in Eindhoven (The Netherlands) has sent out bills for next month's rent in Euro's. But the amount on it is the same as last month's rent, which was in guilders, a 2.2x increase. The society has declared that anyone who paid the incorrect amount will be fully refunded and will get a corrected bill later.

* A branch of ING bank in Blerick inadvertently inserted the wrong cassette into an ATM, which began to give out Euro bills instead of Guilders. This was illegal before January 1st, 2002. The bank has traced the bills and all but 10 euro have already been returned.

* Rabobank has made an error in its daily processing of 300,000 automatic transfers. Instead of transferring guilders, the transfers were made in Euro's, again 2.2x what should have been transferred. The bank hopes to have corrected the mistake before 6pm tonight (Due to the Euro changeover, no banking activity will take place in any of the Euro countries on monday).

* (Just somewhat related:) Two companies thought they were being really smart by putting Eurobills in Christmas gifts for their employees. They have been ordered by the Dutch central bank to recover all those bills or face charges.

ING bank debits wrong sum from accounts: About 51,000 customers who withdrew money from their ING Bank account on 1 & 2 Jan 2002 (through an ATM) have had the wrong amount debited from their account. The bank hasn't yet given an explanation for the error other than to suspect that it was related to the high stress their systems were under during the first few days of the new year. The amounts debited from customer accounts was a hundred times what they withdrew from the ATMs. This got some people into trouble when their balance went negative and they could no longer use their bank PIN card to pay with in shops. ING Bank corrected the error yesterday.
