Texas ATM spits out pleas for help

Texas ATM spits out pleas for help

Banking on some good luck, he tried to get the attention of customers using the ATM by passing "help me" notes through the receipt slot of the machine. "I'm stuck in here" before imploring people to call his boss. But, if the machine starts feeding you notes asking for help, please get help.

Most people thought the notes were a joke.

He passed notes to customers who drove up to the ATM. The man was a contractor who was working on the machine when he accidentally locked himself inside, said Corpus Christi police officer Gena Pena.

With nobody to help he chose to grab customer's attention and it worked.




The man later told the police he had been screaming for help. "Please call my boss at 210-***-****".

Pena said no one could hear the contractor in the ATM and said several officers had to kick the door in to rescue him.

Police freed the man, but since there was no crime committed, details and records are slim, Lt Hooper said. Local gang steals Rs 1.56 crore from ATM cash van in Dharavi!

But the officers duly investigated the cash dispenser at a waterfront Bank of America office in Corpus Christi, after clients said they had received perplexing notes saying "please help".
