    Mastercard Declines problem 12th Jul 18 at 6:44 PM
    Looks like something of a carbon copy of the problem which affected VISA recently. Starling Bank has issued a notification in its mobile app stating that the problem "appears to be affecting multiple banks" and "some transactions are going through" and the advice is "try again".

    I was in Tesco's and it declined, despite having enough funds. Thankfully, I had my trustee bank notes to use instead, however this shouldn't be happening, especially so recent to VISA's network downtime.
