Wells Fargo said most "critical" systems had recovered by the end of the day on Thursday. Customer centers are open but callers may face long delays, the bank said.

The consensus was their direct deposits were in their accounts, but that information wasn't reflected online.

The problems started early Thursday when Wells Fargo said smoke was reported at one of its data centers.

Although the bank said most services were restored, account holders posted on Twitter that cards still weren't working, they were unable to speak with customer service representatives and their direct deposits did not appear in their accounts.

Customers then began reporting they were not able to see their direct deposits in their accounts.
