$1,800 ATM mistake: University of Delaware student returns money to PNC BankBy Alex Jusi Madlangbayan on Mar 5, 2013 in Banking, Business, United States, World •
A campus ATM dispensed a total amount of $1,800 by mistake in the University of Delaware last February 1, 2013.
Reports say that Devon Gluck, from Ellicott City, Maryland, was about to make a withdrawal at the university ATM when it suddenly dispensed 18 pieces of $100 bills.
Gluck, a Delaware senior finance student, was so surprised upon seeing the cash that his “eyes just opened really wide, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, this is $1,800 right here’.” The former Operations Analyst intern at Citi initially kept the money but it bothered him.
After a few days, the graduating student realized that “the right thing would be just to return the money. I mean, it was just eating at me at the time because it isn’t mine and I didn’t even know what to do with it.” He explained that returning the money will make him “feel better, and I’m looking into going into banking and finance, so I felt like this was a good opportunity to meet someone, get a good reference and do the right thing.”
PNC Bank spokeswoman Marcey Zwiebel confirmed that Gluck gave back the money. He was spared by the bank for keeping the money for several days. Instead, the bank manager thanked him for returning the 18 $100 bills.
