A Bank of America customer went to the ATM on Sunday night and got a huge surprise. The ATM was spitting out $100’s and not the money the customer asked for. The customer posted about it on social media and you can guess what happened next.
Soon enough, a line formed and people were getting into scuffles over who would be next to withdraw the $100’s
North Harris County in Houston, Texas was abuzz over the free money. The excitement went on for about 2 hours until a trooper was alerted and shut down the area around the ATM.
