Couldn't happen to a bigger douchebag....

ATM's never work abroad. When I was in America there was only one ATM in San Francisco I found that would give me money, whenever I go to France or Spain it's 50/50 whether they'll work, when I went to Romania there were 2 within 10ft of each other, identical looking, one worked for me one didn't. I don't know why, I just assume it's a card/bank thing... or I'm exceedingly unlucky.

What a stupid story. He's not Mitt Romney. The dude wasn't born a billionaire. I'm fairly certain he's used an ATM before he came up with stole the idea for Facebook.
 
2012-05-30 12:09:44 PM
He's resorted to going ass to mouth for cash?

Maybe it's just your bank? I live in SF, but I've taken out money from several accounts using ATMs in Greece, Mexico, and Germany without ever having a single problem.
 
2012-05-30 01:36:30 PM
Was it because he was stupid or because his ATM card was stupid? Don't most other developed countries use chips in their cards now?

If he's in an area that is remotely close to tourists, there will be an English option.

Italy doesn't use the same number system that we use here in the USA. For example, they don't use a 3. It's because of the metric system.
 
2012-05-30 01:37:46 PM
In the video below, captured by Italian TM News, the nouveaux riche royalty are seen struggling to use an ATM, which the bank swears was functioning normally. Yep, just a regular ATM, like they have here, not just in Italy. There are ATMs in Menlo Park. Zuck struggles to understand out this strange machine, eventually asking some locals for help, and then giving up completely and leaving the scene entirely.

Not to defend Zuck Farkerberg, but many European ATMs won't take input PINs over 6 digits, so if you've got a longer one, you may be farked.

That's why you never go AtM in Romania.
 
2012-05-30 01:38:49 PM
It couldn't possibly because the ATM machine doesn't work on his Bank's network. It must be because he's teh stupid and therefore all of his wealth and fame rightfully belongs to butt hurt Farkers.

Shostie: Have we considered the possibility that Zuckerberg doesn't speak or read Italian?


WTF? When I go to an ATM I am presented with about 18 different options for languages, a few of which don't even use an alphabet that I recognize.

I'm often tempted to pick Spanish because I figure it can't be that hard to withdraw $100 even if I use a foreign language. It will probably ask me "how much?" and :"are you sure?" and then maybe "Are you done?".

Agreed. He's in a foreign country. I kinda suspect that ATM is a bit different from what he's used to, or wasn't in English, or couldn't handle his card. Typical non-story entertainment-news "story".

Perhaps he neglected to tell his bank he was traveling abroad, so they denied his card on the assumption it was fraudulent.

Like I said, I had the same problem in Rome... You put in your card (it does offer English as an option) and then when you go to put in your PIN, you get six blanks:
_ _ _ _ _ _

So, god help you if you have a seven, eight, or nine digit PIN.

If there was only some way he could contact his friends to let them know that he currently needs some help in Italy...

rich is not the point. Z told millions of FB users their info was safe & secure never to be used. he lied to millions of people. sold that data to anyone willing to pay. liar scumbag is why Z is a most hated figure IMHO. liar liar pants on fire.

Most of the cards outside of the US are chipped. No chip = machine borks.

In the USA I think everyone is on the same network (Pulse), but in Europe they have a few competing networks left over from the pre-Euro days. There should be a forced merger of the cash networks but that would leave a bunch of people redundant.

You'd think he would have someone along the lines of a personal valet to do things like speak the local language and hold the stash.

This is a guy who was raised middle class and still prefers to wear jeans and a hoodie.

I'm willing to wager that he uses an ATM.

It is a stupid technology. You need less than $100 bucks worth of equipment to build a simple device that reads every card, on every person you walk past. No need to steal, skim, or pickpocket. You can simply walk past someone and get their numbers. Mythbusters was going to do a show about that fact, but multiple companies (American Express, Visa, Discover... etc.) had their lawyers have a nasty talk with the Mythbusters crew about it....

Adam Savage talking about why there will be no Mythbusters show on RFID technology.

It is a stupid technology.
