Can you imagine going to the ATM expecting to withdraw one amount of money, but leave with a completely higher amount? This is exactly what recently happened in Houston, Texas.
An ATM was temporarily shut down Sunday night and guarded by law officers, after mistakenly dispensing $100 bills instead of $10s. In this new era of social media, of course the word spread like crazy.
Bank of America issued the following statement: “This was an incident at a single ATM in Houston caused when a vendor incorrectly loaded $100 bills in place of $10 bills. We have resolved the matter. Customers will be able to keep the additional money dispensed.”
