ATMs give clients free cash
C O MMONWEALTH Bank customers who may have t hought they hit the jackpot when they were able to withdraw more money than was in their account will have to pay the funds back.
Some Sydney Commonwealth Bank automatic teller machines were yesterday dispensing large amounts of cash thanks to a technical glitch. NSW Police said they received‘‘ numerous re-ports’’ of cash being dispensed from more than 40 ATMs.
‘‘ The ATM ... can’t identify the customers’ account balance,’’ a bank spokesman said.
‘‘ Some have deliberately withdrawn more money than is in their account ... and we will be r ecouping t hose funds.’’
