Malfunctioning ATMs spits out $ 100 bills instead of $ 10 bills in Texas

A list of rare and sought-after star notes is seen after the US $ 100 bills have been applied with a serial number and the US Federal Reserve seal has been cut and stacked at the US Bureau of Engraving and Printing's Western Currency Facility October 11, 2013 in Fort Worth, Texas. The facility is currently the sole producer of the new 100 USD bill. The bill went into circulation on October 8 and includes new security features such as a purple band with moving images, ink that changes color with the angle as well as a new more colorful design.

HOUSTON – An ATM in the Houston area has been shut down and was temporarily guarded by law officers after mistakenly dispensing $ 100 bills instead of $ 10s and word of the glitch got out on social media.

Some Harris County sheriff's deputies have protected the ATM after the Sunday night's incident and the Bank of America.

A bank statement Monday says the vendor incorrectly loaded $ 100 bills in place of $ 10 bills. Bank of America also says that customers will be able to keep the additional dispensed money.

Officials with North Carolina-based Bank of America did not say how much cash was wrongly dispensed.
