ATM with ‘code er­ror’ just keeps on push­ing out cash

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

Amal­func­tion­ing ATM at a bank in Maine in the United States of Amer­ica has dis­pensed $37,000 ( about N5.8mil­lion) in cash to man who re­quested $140 ( about N22,000).

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.

A bank of­fi­cial de­scribes the prob­lem as a “code er­ror” and says no cus­tomer ac­counts were af­fected.
