Nationwide disappointed with dishonest customers

ATM's 'double your money' error

Is this a secret plan by the government so slip in freshly-printed free banknotes to cash machines? Sorry, it is Friday.

  • Nice little find there phd.

    “It is disappointing no one reported the matter earlier in the day when lots of people were aware and it is disappointing some people were deliberately using the machine to take extra money”

    Any bank or BS other than Nationwide and I’d have laughed at this statement. But like ourselves, Nationwide are one of the few institutions that has remained level headed during the recent credit boom.

  • “…it appeared the employee of a firm they use to top up the machine had loaded the notes in the wrong way.”

    Sounds like a design fault with the machine if you ask me. If putting notes in the wrong way around causes this much havoc, maybe the machine shouldn’t allow noes to go in the wrong way around to start with, or fail to dispense in that scenario?! (Better still design the machine such that it can have it’s notes crammed in any which way!)

  • oh dear. apparently there is no love for the banks and people consider them fair game. i’ve always wondered what makes a citizen get in the way of an armed Bank robbery. I know that a bank would never pitch in to help me out.

  • This could well be a plan to slip in some extra money. And like all good government plans there is a big string attached, at any point they feel like they can contact those lucky recipients and ask for the extra back!

  • This has happened before. Seems to happen once every couple of years or so.

    I like the idea though!
