Can you even conceive dear reader of someone so monumentally stupid that he could address a cashpoint machine, slide in his card, tap out his PIN, order £100, retrieve and trouser said card, and then stride away intent on collecting his offspring from school, leaving the hundred uncollected, limp and flaccid in the slot whence it issued?A letter arrived from the bank yesterday:
Sainsbury's Bank has recently contacted Barclays about an issue they have experienced regarding some transactions undertaken at their ATMs.
It appears, on the 07/06/2007 the full amount of cash requested wasn't received, even though yur account was debited in full by £100.00.
Your account wasn't automatically refunded at the time and Sainsbury's Bank have advised Barclays to credit your account with £11824. This credit reflects the refund, and also includes a an interest payment (compound interest at 2.84%) to reflect the compensation had the funds been in a Savings account from the time the transaction occurred.Well I never.
