I went to the SBI ATM to withdraw some cash and saw this notice pasted there! PLEASE COLLECT CASH AS SOON AS IT IS DISPENSED. OTHERWISE SAME WILL DISAPPEAR INTO THE MACHINE. Whazzat @ Trichy again!!! Here's a picture proof of the same! I know some ATM machines do that but seeing the notice kinda scared me!! Have any of you actually lost money in the ATM this way? PS: My quick reflexes made sure I grabbed all the cash I needed.

Whoa. I have never heard of such a thing being done with ATMs. I probably would have never noticed it either, when I am getting money out of an ATM, I am quick to get my money anyway. I don't want anyone to come up behind me and take it, you know? If this ever did happen to me, I would end up on the news for trying to beat up the machine lol.
