What would you do if you found an ATM machine with a debit card still in it?
Take it to the nearest Police Station after all how would I feel if I lost mine !!?
Cut it up because I don't trust the people in the bank nor police officers to return it.
the atm machine leave the card in the slot for only so long - beeping loudly - so the person who left it in there is still in the area - then the ATM sucks the card in and the person has to go to the bank to get it back - if they knew where they left it!
I was that person. and people called me back as I was walking away from ATM to get my card back.
Most folks ARE honest because they have empthy - and believe in Karma.
I don't know how many time I lost my wallet - only to be returned or a little boy at the gas station running up to me to give it back.
I have found a few actually, not all in one day. I've taken it in to the bank figuring someone will come back looking for it.
That has happened to me. I gave it to a teller.
Unfortunately, I was so pre-occupied once I left my cash at an ATM. It was gone a few minutes later. Vanished forever from me. I'm more careful now.
return it to the bank .... no question...I can't imagine the stress of losing something as important as a bank card..
I have given them back to the bank. That said, I one time couldn't get to the bank when they were open until several days later and the bank tellers seemingly became "suspicious" of me for holding on to it for what they perceived to be a "long time". Excuse me for being at work!
The next time it happened, I dropped it into the bank's night drop-slot on the side of the building because I knew I couldn't get to the bank during business hours any time soon and sure wasn't going to be accused of anything I'd never do!
On a different note, I know that ATM/Tyme machines often shred cards that are left in the slot for too long. I was aware that could happen before it happened to me. The only problem when it happened to me was that I didn't leave the card there - I was waiting for the machine to give it back to me after I had my money and the machine malfunctioned. I went to that bank the next day (not my bank) and informed them of the malfunction. I told them how I could hear their machine shred it and they confirmed it was shredded. I then had to go to my bank to order a new card that took weeks to arrive.

JP Morgan Chase is considering capping debit card transactions to $100 or even $50. It's all about fees they charge per transaction, currently $.44 and proposed to be slashed by Congress to $.12.That's a big hit for banks, yes.But after years of "training" us to swipe our debit cards...

ATM is no more the portable drawing security for your bank accounts. The recent Wachovia ATM scam has proven that.
