I have no clue why I had this brain fart tonight. Maybe I was still in shock my father mailed me a check for my birthday which I was depositing. I hit the complete deposit button and the options for the receipt came up. I selected the one I wanted and took the receipt.
I start to roll up the window and notice the ATM is still beeping at me. I glance over and it says. Return card or Another transaction. I have never done this before and I always check to make sure, well until today that my ATM card is back in my wallet.
It would have really sucked if I had left the card in the machine. I'm not rich but I do keep about 1200 in my checking account at all times.
This is for my own stupidity.
P.S. I have come across an ATM twice where people have drove away without their card. I did manage each time to catch up with them and return their card.

My brother left his inside the ATM once. He called the banks 800 number and they told him that if the card is left in their too long, the ATM would take the card back and cut it up. Don't know if all ATMs are like that.

I have found ATM cards in the machine and returned them to the bank.
Since a crook doesn't know your pin number, I doubt he can use the card, but it is a pain to lose one.
My ATM card is also a Visa card, and that could be used.
I don't use ATM's and I don't know my PIN. But I have found people's credit cards lying in front of banks

I think I'm the only person on the planet (aside from hubby) who does not own an ATM card. Everything is cash or credit card (which is paid off every month) for me.
Didn't leave a card in the ATM, but left 100 bucks in cash in one at Dulles Airport outside DC. Didn't discover it untill I landed at LAX and went to get some money to tip a skycap. Woops.

I did that once at a bank atm. After about 15 seconds it was apparently taken into the machine and I had to get it back from within the bank during normal hours. It happened when there no one else around. If someone had been standing behind me I probably would have been more careful. That was also many years ago. The last thing atm's used to do was spit out the card. Now I think they give back the card before the receipt. That was a first and a last for me.
You have a certain amount of seconds to retrieve your card.
It's a safety precaution.
If you don't retrieve it, it goes back into the machine and no more transactions can be made.
You have to contact the bank in the morning, show your identification, pick up your card, and apologize for being a complete idiot.
I'm speaking from experience.

Yep. I refill ATMs. There are usually one or two cards in the machine that people forgot.

I've never left it in an ATM.
Most of the newer ones, and also all the ones in my area, you don't leave your card in the machine. You just insert and remove it without ever letting go of your card. Then you enter your PIN. (It won't even let you enter your PIN to proceed if you stick the card in and leave it there.)
I think the new design is as a result of people leaving them in the machine after their transaction is completed.
The downside to the new machines is there's no feature to make a check deposit. I used to deposit my paycheck on occasion with the old machines. I don't really miss the feature, but I did use it on occasion.
