Christmas came early for a few visitors when a Bank of America ATM in Houston started dispersing $100 bills instead of $20’s.
The issue started on Sunday night and lasted until Monday morning when someone posted about it on social media. Local sheriff officers also noticed a group of people gathered around the ATM and went to inspect the situation after people started fighting and arguing over the extra cash.

It’s unclear how much money the bank mistakenly gave out, but they are letting customers keep the money. Bank of America released a statement Monday afternoon that read, “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.”
What is the most money you’ve ever found? What did you do with it?
