Some folks in Houston Texas got an early holiday gift this year.
A Bank of America was seeing an unusual amount of traffic as word got out that the ATM mistakenly gave out $100 bills for $10 bills. Some reports are saying $10, others claim $20.
From late night Sunday into Monday, folks were withdrawing cash for a few hours while the glitch was in place. When the bank, which is worth $1.284 trillion—yes, that is Trillion with a capital T— learned of the error they said customers could keep the extra cash.
In a statement to KTRK a spokesperson for the bank said:
"This was an incident at a single ATM in Houston caused when a vendor incorrectly loaded $100 bills in place of $10 bills. We have resolved the matter. Customers will be able to keep the additional money dispensed."
