Excited locals in East Ham, London, crowd around a rogue cash machine ‘giving out double money.’
A queue of people can be seen waiting to use the Natwest ATM, with more surrounding the scene, trying to take advantage of the opportunity.
Social media users commenting on the video joked that the bank will soon take the money out of their accounts accordingly, a verdict that is likely true.
Keeping any money wrongly credited to your account could lead to you being charged with ‘retaining wrongful credit’ under the Theft Act 1968.
Footage shared to X shows around 12 people queuing up for the cash point which was ‘giving people double the amount of cash they withdrew’.
As word spread quickly, dozens more locals braved the cold to head to the frenzied withdrawal of cash.
Sharing the news, one account on X wrote: ‘Cash machine on East Ham High Street has gone rogue giving customers double cash’.
