A Bank of America ATM in north Harris County temporarily shut down Monday morning after witnesses say it was mistakenly giving out $100 bills.
Whenever someone went to the bank trying to withdraw $20, the machine would give out $100 instead. Word got around quickly and cars began lining up at the bank located off FM 1960 and I-45 but the news reached deputies and everyone eventually left.
It’s a little Cyber Monday joy for some this morning but you never know. You might want to check your bank account this morning if you visited that ATM to make sure the bank took out the right amount.
UPDATE: Now Bank of America officials say those customers fortunate enough to get the extra cash can keep the money.
The company 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.”
