at least i got my card out, but the money would have been good as well
It did it to my own cash when I was faffing about talking on the phone
carefully took the money and then after thirty seconds it sucked the envelope back in thinking it was the money, then the screen just said out of order, im surprised they didn't write to me about not messing with their machines
Assuming no-one was right behind you in the queue it might be worth ringing the bank in question (the one you took from, not your own I think) and checking if it was dispensed or if its possible for you to reclaim it/get it sent back to your bank.
Can you get back to the branch before it closes (or call them)? There's a tiny chance someone was nice and handed it in
I have been the lucky recipient of free cash sitting in a cashpoint. There was no-one around so I'm not sure about Lucien's 30 second rule.
to be fair, for being that stupid i'd say i deserved to have the money 'stolen' off me
but then again, it would be worse to walk away from your card
any cash in your account so understandable that you would forget.
I doubt there is a north/south divide on cash machines.
In the South there's a long queue of people waiting to use them.
In the North there's a long queue of scallies waiting in vain for somebody in employment to come along and use them.
I'll give you a magic pony.
And I will roast and make kebabs of that pony so you can feed all your dependants.
since the transaction is getting cash out, as soon as you've got that money in hand the mind thinks that you're done and ready to leave. Cash points did this when they were first invented and there were numerous cases of people leaving cards in machines. The order was switched round to card then cash and the problem largely stopped.
is that for zoninnnnnnnnno?
so it'd been easier for me to see what was going on
the entire world should have been arranged like that.
i've also paid for stuff in a shop before and left without it. i am very absent minded sometimes
What a mong. He had to extend his overdraft, too.
at the Barclays on Holloway Road. I withdrew £60 and forgot to take it.
a couple of days later I checked my bank account and the money was back in my account. NOBODY HAD NOTICED THE CASH. SO THE CASHPOINT PULLED IT BACK IN. amazing scenes. there's normally a homeless who sits underneath the cashpoints there too.
"there's normally a homeless who sits underneath the cashpoints there too."
that money could have changed his life. he obviously needed it more than you, mrs 'woops, I just got £60 out and don't even realise'.
i suppose you regularly give that amount of cash to the homeless then?
hadn't noticed it was wrightylew who posted that. *ignores*
The guy in front of me did the usual thing, grabbed his card and then suddenly ran round the corner, leaving the cash. I thought NO WAY am I touching this, even though there must have been a hundred quid there, so I just waited in front of it so it would suck it back in.
But then the guy at the cashpoint next to me leaned over, had a look and I was like 'just waiting for it to be sucked back in', and then he suddenly lunged out, grabbed it, and ran around the same corner as the first guy.
Fucking Shepherds Bush
so he took his money but left his card. So the next person came along and took out £250 from his account.
Don't log you out, you have to press cancel after the cash comes out to get your card back.
it asks if you want another service without having to put your pin in.
I see ads on our work intranet probably once a week (we have a cashpoint in our building) saying 'money found in cashpoint, tell me time and amount to reclaim'.
If I found £50 in a cashpoint I'd definitely go into the bank or at least call them.
is this your way of saying "buy me a drink at zonino, i'm poor"?
This hasn't happened to me though. Although, lately, I've been going to withdraw money from a cash machine and when I take my card, no money comes out. Sometimes I wonder if I'm just being impatient and walk away without my money, but the last time it happened I waited a good few seconds, but...nothing. Reckon I must just be going to a certain ATM that doesn't support my card.
I was once really drunk and was walking home and snagged £40 from the cashpoint, in MY deffence I was REALLY drunk and woke up regretting it and I also split it amongst my peers
I wouldn't regret it if it was fifty either.
I emailed the bank, they said they'd investigate, then sent me a letter a month or so later, saying they'd given me the money back.
but now you have to go in and claim it. I know this as i have done it more than once.
