|Cash machine in England gives double the amount of money
requested for several hours
A cash machine outside a supermarket in Hull in northern England began giving out
double the money requested for several hours on Tuesday, drawing a crowd of hundreds eager
to take advantage of the error.
Those requesting the maximum daily withdrawal of about $600 were being given $1,200 and
a receipt for $600.
People were calling their mates up and telling them to get down there, a
passer-by told The Hull Daily Mail.
After several hours the machine ran out of money.
The police said those who benefited could face charges, but only if the company
administering the machine complained.
