When you use My Accounts in MSN Money, you may not be able to update your account, and you may receive the following error message, where bank_name is the name of your financial institution:
We were unable to update your account because your financial institution indicated that our copy of your bank_name logon information is incorrect.
Some possible explanations for this are:
