    I just went to an ATM to make a cash deposit, since the banks were closed all day. I put $800 in, and the ATM just said there was an error and didn't giveme the cash back or credit it to my account. Has this ever happened to anyone or does anyone know the likelihood of me getting the money back? And yes, this isa cool story.

    I did that with $50 once, needless to say I never make deposits at the bank ATM anymore.

    You deposited $800 through an ATM?! [​IMG]

    It took your money to teach you a lesson:

    Never deposit $800 through an ATM.

    I'm going back to school in the morning tomorrow, there were no other options...especially considering the $35 overdraft fee on the account(which I'llprobably end up paying again)

    The same thing happened to me, I put $60 in the ATM and an error message came up. I went back the next day and spoke to one of the bank representatives andthey fixed it. What bank do you have?

    I didn't even know you could deposit cash into your account via ATM. I would never do it....let alone $800. You live and learn, my friend.

    that happened to me with a check at a wells fargo atm. the machine literally shut down right when i put the money in. I didnt know it didnt go through for afew days and i had mad overdrafts. It took like 2 months for them to sort it out...they couldnt find the check. I havent deposited checks at that atm sincethen

    Yes , the same thing happened to me when BofA switched to windows based ATM. I deposited my check and cash and was like 500 or 600 and while it was processingthe transaction, the damn atm resets like a computer! I was heated. Just called the number on the ATM and they took care of it , made it official 2 weeks laterwith a letter.

    That's why I deposit my $ straight from The bank itself. Can't trust these machines.
