HOUSTON, Texas —
A Bank of America ATM in north Harris County in Texas has been shut down temporarily after witnesses told ABC13 that it was mistakenly giving out $100 bills.
Eyewitness News received a tip with someone saying the machine was giving out $100 bills instead of $20 bills.
Cars started lining up at the bank off FM 1960 and I-45, but deputies eventually showed up and everyone left.
Deputies say they got a call about the ATM malfunctioning.
Now Bank of America officials say those customers fortunate enough to get the extra cash can keep the money.
The company issued the following statement: “This was an incident at a single ATM in Houston caused when a vendor incorrectly loaded $100 bills in place of $10 bills. We have resolved the matter. Customers will be able to keep the additional money dispensed.”
