Twice is nice

Cash machine wrongly filled with £20 notes instead of tenners.

Why does this never happen anywhere near where I live?

I just love the fact that the goss went around the village and people came round in dressing gowns to make sure they got their money doubled.

It’s a feat to make Kahya proud.

Ah, I could remember the good old days, when you could get fivers out of an ATM. (Preferably when you asked for one.)

There was a scam in the late 80s where you could get huge amounts of money out of ATMs. If you got a bit of cashcard-sized plastic, put some video tape on the back of it and then stuck it into the machine, you could then enter any random set of numbers as a PIN and withdraw anything up to the cash limit per customer! Of course, the banks soon caught on, and ATM machines these days are much smarter… (Sigh!)
