Houston-area ATM mistakenly dispenses $100 bills, not $10s
HOUSTON (AP) - An ATM in the Houston area has been shut down and was temporarily guarded by law officers after mistakenly dispensing $100 bills instead of $10s and word of the glitch got out on social media.
Some Harris County sheriff's deputies protected the outdoor ATM after Sunday night's incident and notified Bank of America.
A bank statement Monday says a vendor incorrectly loaded $100 bills in place of $10 bills. Bank of America also says customers will be able to keep the additional dispensed money.
Officials with North Carolina-based Bank of America didn't say how much cash was wrongly dispensed.
