What would you do if you went to an ATM to request $140 but instead it gives you $37,000 in twenties? Well a local man in Maine did what any normal person would have done. He went and grabbed a bag so that he could take all of the money! Who wouldn't?
How was he caught? A woman was waiting to use the ATM. The man was spending an unusual amount of time at the machine so she thought it was suspicious and called the police. The responded to the scene and the man stuffing the bag full of cash.
A malfunctioning ATM at a bank in Maine has dispensed $37,000 in cash to a man who requested $140.
South Portland police say they responded to the TD Bank branch Thursday morning after getting a call from a woman who said a man was spending an unusual amount of time at the ATM she was waiting to use. Officers found the man stuffing cash into a shopping bag.
The money was returned to the bank. Bank officials say they don’t want to press charges. But police continue to investigate. The man hasn’t been charged.Source: AJC
A bank official describes the problem as a “code error” and says no customer accounts were affected.
Shid! I would have had to beat the brakes off of that lady! How dare she tries to interfer with his transaction. He probably needed to withdraw $37,000! How can she say someone was spending an unusual amount of time because she couldn't wait her turn to use the ATM? So she calls the police and costs him $37,000? Baby bye!! That bitch would've had three black eyes when I got through with her! What would you have done?
