ATM gives shoppers double-money windfall

Thu Mar 20, 1:40 PM ET

A cash machine became a big hit this week after it started paying out twice as much money as it should.

The ATM, outside a supermarket in Hull, began spewing out double the money on Tuesday afternoon and continued doing so for several hours, drawing a crowd of hundreds eager to cash in on the mistake.

Those requesting the maximum daily withdrawal of 300 pounds were being given 600 pounds and a receipt for 300.

"People were calling their mates up and telling them to get down there," the Hull Daily Mail quoted a passer-by as saying.

After several hours the machine finally ran out of money.

Payzone, a company that administers ATMs, would not comment in detail on the incident but said it appeared one of its machines had malfunctioned.

Police said those who had benefited could face charges but only if the operator complained.

Apparently, the ATM was loaded with the wrong denomination notes. Very Happy

Hopefully, these hoodie muppets spent their ill gotten gains on some particularly refreshing strong lager and choked to death on their own vomit. Sadly, no such luck. Crying or Very sad

A variation of this is actually a security case study.

Many ATM companies, employed by banks, would leave the admin passcode at the default. So crooks were googling the manuals for the model of ATM and then entering the default passcode. At which point, armed with the manual, they would set the default denomination to the lowest note value they could.

Happened at a place where I used to work. Someone loaded the 10 cassette with 20's. Machine got shut down after a few hours when someone noticed 'unusually high activity'. Very Happy

In Texas they just tie a chain around the ATM machine and to their truck and drive away with it. Easy peasy. That machine wouldn't have lasted long over here. Laughing

The same thing happened to me a few years back. I of course, let the grocery store where the ATM was located know about it, and called the company number. Guess that makes me an honest, stupid git! Smile

There's an apocryphal tale that someone stole an ATM with a JCB. They just dug it out of the wall and made off with it.

Unfortunately for them, as getaway vehicles go, JCBs are not the fastest.

Hahahaha^^^^^

On topic, I had a friend who stole a pay phone in high school and some how hooked it up in his house so he could make paid phone calls. Not sure how it worked, though....

He lived in Staten Island, and near where he lived a front end loader rammed a wall and took the whole machine and dumped it into a dup truck... or something. This was in the papers 25 years ago.

I was afraid that would happen. It does Google, but what do the yanks call one of these?

My kids used to call them juicy bees

The ATM round here seems to be trying to even the balance.
Its not giving out the moneybut still debiting the accounts- allegedly.

Generally, Americans in the west (an area bounded by California, Oregon, and Washington on the Pacific coast and Montana, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona - and perhaps New Mexico on the east) call it a BACKHOE. We don't actually differentiate backhoes with and without front loader/scraper blades from backhoes without.

What nomenclature is common in the rest of the country is anybody's guess; I worked construction only in the western US.

Backhoes are terribly useful, and seem to enjoy hanging around graveyards. They are seemingly simple to operate with only a few minutes' instruction - until they decide to tip over, sink, or get stuck.

This from Wikipedia, thus explaining the JCB business:

"The backhoe loader was invented in the UK in 1953 by Joseph Cyril Bamford, founder of J. C. Bamford (JCB), by equipping a farm tractor with both a backhoe and a front-mounted loading bucket."

I have twice had instances when the ATM failed to pay out. The first occasion was the eve before a 1000klm drive home after being away working for 6 months. I was getting money to finalise rent, fill the car with fuel etc.
Lucky I was able to draw more in the morning. To top it off the ink in the receipt printer was out. Tried to redraw and I had exceeded daily allowance Sad Second time was only a local machine and not a lot of money however both instances took over a week to resolve as they have to wait till the machine is balanced next to look for discrepancies.

I know some guys who turned up to decommission an atm and found the door open as expected however the guards had forgotten to remove the $250K Smile

I remember the time I drove up to an ATM and withdrew money. It took forever for the money to come out. While I was waiting I was cursing a blue streak. Finally the money came out and I politely said "Thank You". Then I hear this man's voice say "You're welcome". Because of a hedge next to the ATM I didn't see the repairman's truck there. He heard every cuss word I knew. Embarassed

atms <shakes head>

i`ve had problems with one bank. a few years ago my card got chewed. i went into the branch, and they said`we`ve called you in for a chat` i asked for my card back, (they chewed it so i`d come into the branch). they tried to get me to get out a credit card. i said no i didnt need one.

then they wouldnt allow me to have my debit / cashpoint card unless i got a credit card out with them. (i pleaded they couldnt do this.. but they did!)
i said yes (foolishly thinking i`ll cancel it after 1 day. just to get my debit card back.. Shocked )

after i got both cards, they cancelled the debit card again after a couple of days...

i went into the branch again and complained. all i got was..
"youve got a credit card now -use it !! "

i didnt even have a cheque book either! i was well screwed!
i cancelled everything after!
-what bank was this? the one who joined with lloyds- to form LLoyds-T*B

A few years ago there was a series of incidents, where ATMs got blown up in Austria and Italy. Yes, you heard it right...blown up...they filled them with gas and then ignited it and blew the ATMs into pieces to get to the money. Didnt work all the time, but alltogether they caused a damage of 850.000 and stole about 350.000 by blowing up about 25 ATMs in Austria and Italy.
Here are some pictures of the ATM: (article in german).

They were caught later on btw and sentenced to 6 and 7 yrs. of jail.
