I like how the guy only gets up to 15 months in prison for this, but you can get over two years for drug possession. GG, American legal system.
god if that had happened I would be out of the country so fast.
If only he understood that glitch gave him more money he would have ever won gambling, he would've been out of there so fast... only to be caught anyway.
What an idiot... Why would you go out gambling with that much money.
how do ATM's even malfunction this badly though, with that much money at stake you would think they would spend some time making sure their money can't be stolen this easily.
this happened about a month ago here in ireland, loadsa people were gettin unlimted funds, altho the highest anyone cashed out was about 400 grand i think, which is still alot of fuckin cash.
Too bad it was logged on their accounts and every dime has to be repaid.
Didn't know ATMs held that much money in their cash storage. Must be because it's at a casino.
This sounds like the plot of one of those feel good youth movies.
Isn't it meant to soley be the people who programmed the bank machines fault if something like this happens?
Since the article doesn't tell us how exactly the ATM glitched up. I would possibly guess that maybe the ATM wasn't reporting back to the bank's computer that the amount had been withdrawn.
And another one of our machines, the coca-cola machine with the robotic arm, periodically goes on a rampage and starts wizzing the arm around like crazy, flinging random bottles into the bottom of the machine.
Same thing here, the man wanted money and this money had more come with it. Yet its not the banks fault? If they wanted this not to happen they should do routine checks.
There is a better way to represent these two things but I can't think of one.
Of course, I can already tell my logic is flawed (i'm serious) so can someone point it out?
You get 1,5$ fucking million and you waste it on gambling?
Jesus fucking christ you goddamn idiot, WHY?
When I was 10 I actually saw an ATM machine spurting out cash, but being 10 I had no real use for it and told the store manager. He let me keep $50
What I don't get is how he did it? If he took 1.5 million dollars from the ATM, that would equal 15.000 100 dollar bills. I might not know the biggest denomination in the dollar system, but if 100 dollars is it, then how could he possibly get 1.5 million dollars without using one or two big bags?
I mean, 1 million dollars fill this much:
