I belong to a credit union so stopped at another credit union today to make a $20.00 withdrawl from their ATM. A lady told me that she had trouble with the machine - she withdrew $250.00 and only got $10.00, but the machine withdrew $250.00! I like an idiot went ahead with my transaction. I withdrew $20 and only received $10 - but the transaction took out $150.00 from my account!!! Now I have to go back to the credit union and recover my money that I did not withdraw! What a pain. I have never had this problem with an ATM before. Anyone else experience anything like this?
This incident makes me want to go back to the good old days of withdrawing money from a teller and writing cheques for expensive items. Forget the stupid debit card!!!
