“Did that really just happen to me?”

GLENOLDEN, Pa. (TheBlaze/AP) — When Kristina Edwards stopped at a Wells Fargo on Sunday to withdraw $60 before going food shopping, the single mother of two got a little more than she bargained for.

Exactly $320 more, in fact.

“Did that really just happen to me?” the 35-year-old recalled to the Delaware County Daily Times after the surprise windfall. “It literally started spitting $20s out.”


“I panicked,” she added to the paper. “It was like something out of a movie.”

She tried to chase down the customer in line in front of her to see if the money belonged to him. When she found out it didn't, she called Wells Fargo and was told to return the money to a bank branch when she could.

Edwards, a registered nurse, did that Monday.

“Somebody deposited that money. It could have been their paycheck,” Edwards told the Daily Times, adding, “$380 to me is a lot. I was concerned about the person who is losing it.”

Edwards told the paper that the bank said the extra money will go into the bank’s fund. A bank spokesman said Wells Fargo is grateful Edwards returned the money after the ATM malfunction.
