You should have just left it - the machine would have taken it back in.

I'd return it to the bank ASAP. Anything else is plainly theft and you'll be on CCTV doing it :).

most people would've just nabbed it :rolleyes:

Inside a bank with CCTV covering every square inch? You'd have to be a bit 'special' not to give it back, regardless of any moral issues :).

Last time I saw this happen was at a Tesco cashpoint.
Somebody had left I think it was £50 in the cashpoint next to me.
No idea who it was and although I knew eventually it would have taken the cash back it was beeping away quite loudly, making itself very known and I knew that not everyone is honest.
I took it into the store and handed it in.

I checked back on the status the following week (out of interest).
There was a quick "thank you" note and £10 waiting for me in an envelope for my trouble.

hand it in, after x amount of time, you get it back. The chances are no one will ask for it..
