    I don’t know of many ATMs that give out $5 bills anymore, but that’s pretty crazy. Doesn’t speak well for the town that it took 9 days for an honest customer to come forward.

    I don’t think it does. It sounded like it would just debit $5 from your account for each 20 that it gave out. I hate to say it, but this is pretty clever. I am also amazed it took so long for someone to come forward. Although, with cash back at the register, people probably don’t use those much anymore.

    Yeah, it’s hard to tell exactly what was happening. If it really just debited less from the account, you would still get the amount from the ATM that you expected. You’d have to look at the receipt to know something was up.
