IT'S STARTED !!!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
WELL , the glitch has started here in TORONTO ( although I would like other people to tell me of their own expericnces as well)
2:58pm I went to the CIBC uphere to take out @20.00 from my bank for - you know - VINO and wouldn't you know that I got my cash and my STATEMENT which said I had $12,392 in my account - Needless to say my account is not THAT high - not at THIS time of the year. I thought I made a mistake but realized that as soon as I got my money the balance paper came out and I always fold it over my card. Giving me a different card number and other information on the paper.
SO if anyone else has had any strange this between now and monday please let me know I feel like a UFO abductee ( this sounds too wild to be real)

So Sean, what are you going to spend your gift of $12,392 on? How come I'm never that lucky?

I hate to be the one to ruin your paranoia ;), but perhaps it's just an ordinary NON-y2k related computer glitch.

Have to go with Leo on this one. Think some folks around here are a little anxious to be the first one to cry "wolf"

Since the receipt had someone else's account number it was probably from the previous atm user. Some people don't take their receipts or it could be a paper jam. More evidence that people will see things in whatever light they bring to it.
