Man goes to ATM for $140, receives huge surprise
It’s a scenario you’ve dreamed about: you walk up to an ATM to withdraw a little money, but instead it starts spitting out thousands. That’s exactly what happened to a South Portland, Maine, man.
He wanted $140, but instead received $37,000.
Unfortunately, in this case, all good things come to an end.
A woman behind him called police because he was spending an “unusual amount of time” at the ATM she was waiting to use.
Officers forced him to give the money back, but no charges were pressed.
The bank is blaming the problem on a “code error.”
