Bragging on Facebook is icing on the cake.

These banks are not dumb. "Bank error in your favor" is something that you only find on a Monopoly board. When the banks run their numbers, they will see the fark up, and you bet your ass they will come a-knocking for their money

Bank of America rips people off.. Everyone knows this. They had ripped me off of about $400-500 over the course of years having an account with them. One day I went to deposit my check and they gave me the cash for the check. They also deposited the check. They called me because they were missing $600 and change and I said I never saw any cash and had no idea what they were talking about. In the past they claimed "paperwork errors" had cause my checks not to be deposited when I deposited them and then charged me $30(X)whatever for bounced check fees. I simply told them they must have a paperwork error. Other than today I've never told anyone about it.. Of course that was 15 years ago so no one gives a shiat now. Point is STFU.

But the headline is a supreme fail.

"CBA customers used Facebook to spread work about 'free' ATM cash"

glitch allowed them to withdraw large sums of money, overdrawing on their accounts.

Um, overdrawing your account isn't free money that I'm aware of.

TD bank sucks too. I had 500+ in the bank and was depositing more than that. the banks paperwork error tried to subtract the amounts. Luckily I had just gotten a balance slip which showed the money in there first. They tried to overcharge me 105.00 for 3 charges at 35 each. Once I proved to them that they were wrong, and I wanted 105.00 for their problem, they (surprisingly) wouldn't do it.

What ever happened to "fair is fair"?

If you want to take the money and run, the non-repudiation established when you logged into the ATM machine with your PIN number is going to be tough enough to overcome. There's no need to add the challenge of posting TMI information on your Facebook account.

In the break room of a place I worked, there was a junk food machine that allowed you to put in a five dollar bill. It would vend you your selection, give you change back for the remainder up to one dollar, then give you $5 dollars in quarters back.

/The banks always figure out ATM mistakes and come after the excess takers.

I had a roommate in college who was accidentally given an excess of $ at a counter bank withdrawal. He's honest, he went to return it. He was told it was "OK" because they'd detected the problem and already deducted the money he didn't ask for out of his account when he had a receipt for something else.

This kinda freaked him out, because they'd deducted his account on their own. It can cause bounced checks, and it's possible that the teller could be mistaken in having thought he'd been overpaid, in which case deducting money from his account is simply the bank stealing from you.

Plus ATMs all have Farking cameras. If an ATM ever gives you more money than you have or asked for, return it immediately or you will go to jail, whether or not your stupid enough to brag about it on Facebook is immaterial.

Honestly. What was their endgame? Do they think they're going to be able to just run off with that $30k and move to the Cayman's? Now in addition to receiving felonies they'll likely never be able to open another bank account anywhere.

Yeah, people tend to think "Finders Keepers" is a legal rule, but that's not even close to it. Just because an ATM spits extra cash out at you doesn't mean you're entitled to it.

The other honest truth is that 95% of bank fees and penalties that you pay are legitimate. You just A) Don't read the disclosure forms that you sign, and B) don't understand how business days with respect to the federal reserve work.

It doesn't mean the fees are sheisty (because banks in general are sheisty), but failing to read and understand (or ask questions) about what the bank disclosure forms say doesn't absolve you of them.

Not as good as the guy who took $1.5M from ATM machines due to a "glitch"

Laconic: due to an erroneous "pay all" status that allows blindly paying all overdrafts, he took $1.5M from the very fat casino ATMs over a period of 18 days and apparently gambled it all away. His account being overdrawn by $1.5M is not being treated as a simple bank debt, but a criminal offense of stealing.

LOL what if he'd won? Pay the bank bank and keep the profits? That would have made more sense if the bank had just called the loss a civil debt, because he could have just declared bankruptcy and dissolved it. But a jail sentence can't be written off with bankruptcy.

I went to the ATM the other day. The machine now gives you your card back at the beginning of the transaction. Girl in front of me, got her cash, got her card and walked away. I walked up and the screen asked if I would like another transaction. I hadn't yet put my card in, so I had access to her account and could have cleaned her out. I called her back and showed her that her account was still accessible. What a horribly bad design flaw. I assume most people have their cash and their card and their brain signals, all done, walk away.

Most ATMs are set up so that if you click "Yes" (as in, Yes I want another transaction), you have to reenter your PIN.

The CBA started checking CVC all the way back in 2012. Oh thats this year. They can't do AVS at all and have no plans to ever.

This message started out as one of two major grocery stores in the country were told not to provide cash back for CBA cards. Every time that happens the ATMs go into a credit mode.

This bank make something like $1,400 per Aussie in profit per year yet has these types of failures every 2 weeks for 2 minutes to 8 hours every other monday morning after 2 am.

Something tells me they just don't give a fark.

had been left with the coin door unlocked. Shaking from adrenaline and fear, I edged the door open enough to drop a quarter through the slot and back into my hand. *bing* Free game! When my lives where up I looked over my shoulder with great apprehension and did the quarter trick again. A few times later I discovered I didn't even need the quarter, and I could just push the plunger that the coin hits. I played for about 45 minutes until I had beaten the game, and then went home to cherish my memories of 'sticking it to the man'

At our local arcade, there was this trick where you could take a penny (I think, well something less than a quarter) and fling it into the quarter slot. Imagine making it spin and wobble to seem like the size of a quarter. And it would see it as a quarter.
