ATM malfunction takes Avondale man's $1,300 in cash

Most of us use ATMs to withdraw cash, but some people — such as gig workers or restaurant workers who rely on tips — often use ATMs to make cash deposits.

But did you ever wonder if there is any risk to that? One Avondale man said he just found out how risky it can be.

Eric Morton said he's out a large amount of money after what he believes was an ATM malfunction.

"I walked into the ATM kiosk and put my card in," he said, pointing to PNC's free-standing ATM kiosk on Linn Street in Cincinnati's West End.

He said he then deposited $1,300 cash, mostly in $20 bills, into the ATM's cash slot.

"I heard it counting the money, counting the money," he said. "But as it was processing, an error hits the screen."

Confused, he reinserted his card and checked his account.

"I then follow up, and check my account, thinking maybe the money is in there," he said. "But it was not in there."

His account showed no deposit.

No answers from bank security department

Morton owns a courier company and said he frequently deposits cash, but he said when he called the bank's security department, he claims the agent questioned whether he was telling the truth.

"So I feel like I am defending myself more than you are trying to help me," he said. "I am trying to find out where my $1,300 went, and no one can tell me anything."

Morton said he's not asking the bank to take him at his word; he's just asking the bank to look at the footage from the camera on the machine and the two bubble cameras around the ATM.

"That's all I have been asking for," he said. "Check the camera footage."

So, don't let this happen to you. When depositing cash, says:

  • Use an ATM at a physical bank that is frequently checked, not a freestanding one with no bank nearby.
  • Don't deposit cash to an out-of-network ATM where they would not have your account information if something goes wrong.
  • Consider using a live teller if it's a very large amount of cash.

We sent Morton's case to PNC, which promised to do a full investigation in the coming days (see full statement below).

Meantime, Morton said he will never again do an after-hours cash deposit.

As always, don't waste your money.

Frequently Asked Questions

Making Deposits at the ATM
  • The ATM saves you time by avoiding long teller lines.
  • The ATM is available for customer transactions virtually 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

  • Deposit Image ATMs offer additional advantages, including:
    • No envelopes or deposit slips are needed – All you need is to insert your cash or checks
    • Check images and cash summaries are printed on the receipt

When a bill is not accepted for deposit, it can be due to a variety of reasons. For example, the condition of the bill or some other factor makes the bill undetectable / unreadable, or you have reached the maximum number of bills that can be deposited at one time, or the ATM is temporarily not accepting deposits. If you experience a problem making a deposit using an ATM, please see a representative inside the branch.

The most common reason is that the account and routing number has not been encoded with magnetic ink. The ATM is not able to read checks printed on machines that do not use magnetic ink, such as home printers. On some occasions, the ink from a signed name may run into the line of characters at the bottom and hinder depositing.

At our new Deposit Image ATMs, you can insert up to 35 bills at one time. If you have more than 35 bills, select Add More Cash and continue making deposits until you complete your transaction.
