Lads Buy Old ATM Machine And Find $2,000 Inside

A group of lads came up trumps after they bought an old ATM and cracked it open, finding thousands inside. Have a look for yourself:


The lads picked up the former hole in the wall for $300 (£221) and decided to have a look to see whether there was any cash lying about.

And boy were they in luck, pulling out a cool $2,000 out of the sealed metal box inside.

In footage shared to TikTok, the lads can be seen attempting to bust the drawer open, using a drill, a crowbar and a hammer to get to the bills. It's a lengthy process.

Explaining how they came to get their hands on the ATM, one of the friends holding the camera says: "He [former owner] used to own ATMs and he sold this to us, as is.

"He didn't have the keys for it, he said, 'If you guys wanna have it, you can have whatever's in it'.

"So we bought it from the guy and now we're home popping it open because he didn't have the keys for it, and we're finding some money."

A whole lot of money.

After using a number of tools to try and get the cash out, they slowly start pulling bills through a gap they created, until they're left with a huge stack.

Well done, lads.

Earlier this year, a fellow TikToker, however, shared a much more sinister ATM tale, urging people to be careful when trying to withdraw their cash.

The Nationwide customer was trying to take some cash out when they realised that something wasn't quite right.

The TikTok user, going by the handle @hasanoriginal, shared a video to his channel to warn others to make sure they check the ATM is legit before using them.

In the video, he can be seen approaching a machine on a main road, however, where the slot should be for the money to come out, there is a long plate blocking the gap and preventing notes from being dispensed.

He says: "I came to the cash point and inserted my card. I wanted to draw out some money, so I typed in my pin.

"Up on the screen came the selections, I selected the money and I waited for the cash. And they said the cash to follow but no cash came out."

He then pans the camera around to show there were no notices stating any issues with the machine.

And on closer inspection of the actual ATM, he notices that there is a strip of plastic covering the note dispenser.

Peeling it back, he then explains that he found his money trapped behind it.

He says: "What someone had done was they had put this plastic plate over there so that the cash would come out but wouldn't come out of the machine, it would stay there.

"This is a warning for all of you to be careful."
