Some Harris County sheriff's deputies protected the outdoor ATM after Sunday night's incident and notified Bank of America.
Well in Texas, once word got out that a Bank of America ATM in Houston was giving out $100 instead of $10, everyone raced to the ATM.
For every $20 requested by the customer, a $100 bill was dispensed by the machine. Well the vendor accidentally put & 100 bills in place of $10 bills. Someone posted about the error on social media, which brought more people to the area, reportedly leading to some arguments and fights over the free money. Some of the people began arguing and fighting.
The ATM was shut down and guarded by the officers until the glitch was worked out. We have resolved the matter.
Bank of America issued a statement, revealing that the customers will be able to keep the money.
Authorities didn't immediately say how much money was erroneously dispensed.
