So on Friday night I had to make a deposit into my HSBC account. Mostly because my mom made a deposit into my chase account then wrote a check against my HSBC account [long story, not really relevant]. Rather than telling me ahead of time, she told me AFTER. So being that HSBC is no longer my main bank, there are no funds in there. Fine. I forgot to do this on Thursday when she told me and remembered halfway through the day Friday. I was at work, so I went to chase after work [at which time HSBC was closed], took the money out, went to HSBC and deposited the money into the ATM. For some reason the dumb ATM would not recognize the bills, even though I had JUST taken them out of another bank. I kept trying to do this, and I think I became distracted, because the damn door on the slot closed WITH MY MONEY IN IT.
I basically freaked out and tried to get it out to no avail. I called them, had to wait for a ridiculously long time, and basically there was nothing to be done except for them to open an investigation. So wonderful. I called them today, and they told me bank security still needs to investigate and it can take up to 10 days. They said if the investigation is found to be in my favor they will take care of any fees in regards to an overdraft. Isn't this ridiculous though?? And I am just paranoid at this point. I'm sure the bank has all sorts of cameras, as well as the ATM but still. Has anyone gone through anything like this? Sigh.
