    The bank will click on to you eventually and debit your account accordingly.

    Let the bank know ASAP.
    As ChrisKH says, it's wrong, and the bank will come after you for their money.

    I'd wonder how I had that much money to get out...

    Nah, they're bound to catch up in the end, not worth the hassle of trying to pull a fast one...

    Smile to the camera, collect all the money, then phone the bank and ask for a reward :angry:

    Many years ago when I was young and foolish, I was a smoker. In those days there was a lot of concern that innocent shopkeepers were being prosecuted for selling ciggies to under-age kids, but eventually an ingenious solution was found - the street-corner cigarette machine! This technology allowed the financial needs of the vendors and the health-endangerment needs of the children to be met on neutral, no-blame ground - perfect!

    So there I was, staggering back from a long night at the pub with my mates when I was alarmed to feel my lungs beginning to clear. I realised that I was in imminent danger of my young smoker's cough vanishing, but help was at hand in the form of one of said ciggie-machines. I fished out the last of my loose change and fed it into the machine's coin slot. Disaster - the coins clattered straight through the machine and down into the coin tray below. I tried five or six times, but the machine wouldn't accept my money; what was a boy to do? Something made me try the the cigarette drawer anyway and to my surprise, I became the proud owner of a glistening pack of 10 Woodbines. I tried again and got another pack. I kept going until I'd emptied the machine. At first I felt guilty, as if I was nothing better than a common criminal. But then I realised that there was an alternative way of looking at it - those cigarettes were just excellent value for money ;)!

    I had a mate who this happened to. Turned out the the screen had dropped down inside the machine so he actually was drawing out £200 at a time from his account!

    I'll start feeling sorry for the banks when they stop ripping me off and stop making obscene profits.
