Today, I made a withdrawal of $600 from the ATM in El Rey so that I could make the deposit in Hal’s account. I walked directly to HSBC across the street and gave the money, I had just taken from my ATM, to the teller and asked for two receipts, one for $500 and one for $100.
The teller counted the money and there was only $500. Luckily, I had an extra $100 and was able to make the entire deposit.
I returned home and verified that my bank had only distributed $500. Now my problem with the ATM is that it should have rejected my transaction and given me a message stating that there was a $500 limit.
Instead it said nothing and dispensed $500. I remember now that this has happened to me before and I had forgotten. I thought it was worth mentioning again, so that others would be mindful of this and not just assume that you receive what you request.
