Students Have Been Allowed To Keep Free Money Given To Them By a Glitchy ATM In Manchester

Back in December, a Tesco Bank cash machine in the student hub of Fallowfield in Manchester suffered a glitch that caused it to give out additional money to its customers. For about an hour on 16th December, the machine dispensed double the amount of cash requested, much to the delight of everyone who used it during that time.

Naturally, long queues formed as the word spread.

The best part of the story is that Tesco have now confirmed that those who ended up with more money than they asked for can keep it.

Tesco do not actually know how many people used the faulty machine or how much money was mistakenly withdrawn from it during the incident. However, they have now guaranteed that they will not be recovering the money after a spokesperson said: “Customer accounts will have been debited for the amount that they requested and will not be debited further.”
