Just come back during banking hours and make everybody you talk to at the bank miserable. That's the way the system works.

That's why I don't use card sucker machines. I've had other bank ATMs take the card and refuse to give it back... not because there was a problem with my account, but because there was a problem with the ATM. fark that. Either I get to swipe or I go to another ATM.

I have employed this same technique on various food and drink vending machines with mixed results after they have eaten my money without dispensing my goody.

I was at an ATM one time and my gf at the time started tickling me. That distracted me long enough for the machine to eat my card. Before then I had no idea they did that.

Just take the damn thing home and crack it open, how hard can it be?

I hate ATMs that take the card in. I had one act like it had eaten my card, but apparently it gave it back to the next customer. Who then tried to use it.

$11,000 of damage to an ATM?  Is that cop math at work again?  A brand new ATM machine like you see at just about any store and such will cost about $2000.  They are usually unarmored ones.  I'm not sure how much more an armored ones go for, but I somehow think that it isn't so much more that you could damage one and do over 5 times that amount.

machine + transportation + programing + set up + security during loading

costs add up

It's not widely-known, but many ATM cards are, in fact, delicious.

$11,000 in damages? What did he do, go out to Lowes and get a sledge hammer, come back and start wacking on it for a half hour? No way he did that just by punching at it.

What if he needed money and he only had his card?

What do you do if you tell your cabbie you need to pull out some cash to pay him then the machine eats your only source of getting cold green money into your hand at 10PM...

I can understand how someone in a bad headspace could flip out on a machine like that. I dont know about breaking the machine but theres a chance i would have called the cops and started yelling that the machine stole my card and farked my over.

But then i found out recently that its kindof a Canadian thing to use your ATM card as your only money in your wallet. I know allot of the time my ATM card is all i have in my wallet for money.

If you had read the article it said he attempted to pry the machine open, nowhere did it say anything about punching it.

:The ploy didn't work but did cause roughly $11,000 in damage to the ATM, according to police."

What did he do to cause such an inflated estimate?


/probably pissed he could NOT buy snow-coffee, was too late to eat birds-

The cops calculated the damage using cop math.

If an ATM pisses me off, I may give it a smack, then I leave. But I guarantee you the next day that broken ATM will be replaced because of lead poisoning from somewhere not on camera.
