I've left £100 in the Cashpoint

Barnaby123Barnaby123

OK, first things first, I'm a really silly boy, and feel like a prize clown. I drew £100 out of the cashpoint on Xmas eve, but then took my card and left the money in the machine. The transaction has not been reversed on my account, so i guess that someone has made off with the loot. Does anyone know if I have any way of getting this back or having the bank investigate CCTV etc to see where it went?

    Talk to the bank and see what they say...

    If you dont take money after a certain period of time, and no one else took it - it will get pulled back in to the machine. Go in and ask them about it :)

    Yes, I am fully aware of that. You're pretty sharp aren't you. :x

    cash machines suck the money back into the machine if its not taken..

    thats what that beeping noise is when it detects money in the slot thingi.
    You shouldnt be charged.

    It does the same with your card as well.

    check your statements.. and tell your bank

    Can I suggest that you go back to bed and try getting out the other side. I'm fully aware of that one.

    Yes, I've checked and the transaction has gone through. I'm with Nationwide but withdrew from a Lloyds machine though, so I'm hoping that the machine took the money back but it takes a couple of working days for lloyds to notify nationwide. I think I'll give both a call this morning and see what they say, but not very hopeful.

    not sure how cctv will help, wont b very good quality and all it will show is sum1 taking money from a machine like everyone does, as has been said before....after a certain amount of time the money is sucked bk in, if i was after u in the quewe i would have taken it for sho.....i think most ppl would tbh so i guess if theres no luck contacting the bank ull just have to take it on the chin....im sure ull never make this mistake again.

    That's true but if someone did take the money then there won't be a lot the OP can do about it. If someone saw £100 there and hadn't seen him walk off they'd have probably taken it thinking the machine was broke. And I doubt the bank will do anything about it if it has been taken because it's negligence on his part.

    Same as if you go online and check your account or statement and fail to log out - if someone logs on and goes straight into your account and takes your money the bank don't have to do anything about it.

    hmmm yeah but the money only stays out in the open for around 20 secs.. but it is possible for some1 to walk past and take it.. but then again if there wasnt anyone waitting or wanting to use the cash point its unlikely that some1 would of taken it.

    The online banking thing also has a timer on it, if you open your bank page and leave it for 30secs next time you click an action the page will expaire..
    But yes it is possible in both cases to be "done over"

    Im letting the OP know that money gets sucked back into machines if it is not taken..

    If this happend to me, I would check my statement and see if the £100 has been deducted.

    I think it all depends on whether the money was sucked back in or whether someone took it on whether they will get the £100 back.

    It wouldn't harm you to contact the branch of Lloyds.
    If the cash was retracted back into the ATM and that wasn't flagged up the member of staff responsible for filling the machine would notice a discrepancy between the totals and you letting them know would sure speed up the process of them handing the cash back to you.

    Badly worded I know but you get my drift, my wife used to work for a bank and dealt with ATM's for a while.

    i was walking past a bank last year ..and the street was busy and there was a £20 note in it..no one walking past had noticed it ...but it doesnt go back into the machine speedy fast..

    If you draw from a non bank machine,(not your own bank) and it is sucked back it can still take 3 working days for them to notify your own bank, a reversal will show but will take time. Dispute the transaction if it is showing on your online statement.Tell them the money didn't come out as it sounds like you are not too sure (liquid lunch??). Good luck.

    P.S. did you actually see the money, could the machine have been out of notes???? Very common at Xmas.
