Bankomat-forgetting to take money

If one forgets to take the money from a Bankomat does the machine take it back automatically? If so after how long?

It's about 10 seconds I think and it'll be credited back to your account

Re: Bankomat-forgetting to take money

Yes, and the machine 'knows' so you can go to the bank and ask for them to check it. You might even be able to phone their helpline and they can do it remotely...

Re: Bankomat-forgetting to take money

Well the reverse situation happened today. I went to a Bankomat and nobody was there and nobody was in the vicinity. And I did not see anybody who maybe had used the machine. In the machine lay 400 CHF so I took it out and rang the UBS hotline. I have to go to UBS on Monday. I did not consider that the money would be taken back into the machine. And anyhow it was certainly a couple of minutes.

Re: Bankomat-forgetting to take money

The question is maybe that I should not have taken the money out of the machine? When I took it out it did not close

And your remaining question is :confused
I somehow forgot to take CHF 200.- from the Bancomat when in stress last year. I went to the next UBS within the next 10 mins, and they had no record of it.

You've called the bank and told them you have the cash, which you are going to return to the bank.

I don't see a problem, however the machines are set up.

Re: Bankomat-forgetting to take money

Legally one could maybe be charged for stealing?

You've told the bank that you have the cash and that you intend to return it. You intend to return it.

I'm no lawyer, but that doesn't look like stealing to me.

Would you be afraid of accusations of theft if you found a phone on the train and put it in your bag for safekeeping? Same thing.

If you found F400 on the street and took it to the police station would that be stealing? I don't see a difference here.

In fact perhaps you should have taken it to the police. If no one claims it in a year you get it, if someone claims it they are expected to give you 10%. Either way free money.

Re: Bankomat-forgetting to take money

Well I read that forgotten money that sits in a Bankomat slot should not in theory be touched. And that it can result in a criminal charge to remove it

No, stealing is generally defined as taking something without the intent to return it. In your case you’ve already demonstrated an intent to do so by contacting the bank.

As long as you follow through you may even be eligible for an award of approx 10% of the total (if you’d gone to the Police say) however you’ve gone to the owner of the cash which is the bank until it has been removed from the machine by the account holder.

I’d ensure if possible you keep the actual notes, but don’t worry as long as you have total worth.

Was there a camera in the ATM or in the vestibule? If so it’s likely The Bank has a record of your image

Thanks for being honest.

Wow: Looks like omtatsat should at least take himself seriously:

https://www.ktipp.ch/artikel/d/banco...sliche-kunden/

Google translate (don't know who should translate this):


"Not everyone who buys money at a ATM will take the notes with them. Alone at vending machines of the major bank UBS leave in Switzerland every day over 40 customers their money in the slot. Similar figures are given by Raiffeisen and Postfinance.

Fortunately, the ATMs are recovering the notes after a short time. The bank will credit the customer's money to the account as soon as it has moved in. Tip: For safety reasons, note the date, time and location of the ATM and contact the bank where the card came from.

Anyone who takes strangers who have left lying notes from a cash machine is liable to prosecution."

I would not be so sure, on 21 December 2017 I withdrew 400 euros from a bank, the machine accepted the withdrawal, then nothing happened for a minute, then time out & transaction cancelled. I repeated the transaction & 2 x 400 euros left my account. The Bank in question confirm my story however 3 weeks later I still do not have my money back.

Re: Bankomat-forgetting to take money

A translation from a case where a person took the money forgotten in the machine:

"No theft, but unlawful appropriation

In court, the threefold mother was not responsible for theft, but for unlawful appropriation. The prosecutor charged that she had not paid the money to the bank, to a lost property office or to the police. The petition was for ten daily sentences at 70 francs and 300 francs fine. "

Re: Bankomat-forgetting to take money

What is this alarmist bullshit? He has called the bank. He is following their instructions. He's taking the money back to the bank as instructed.

He is not going to get into trouble.

Maybe money has no worth for some people. To forget 400 CHF in the Bankomat is crazy!
