This is the great article posted by the author and many of us are facing the failed transaction at ATM's and worried about the money that was never taken from the machine. It happened to me in Chennai. I just put my card in the SBI ATM machine at Triplicane, I could not receive the money, but printed receipt already debited with 2000. Stunned over this I called the account number branch of mine. He assured not to panic and the things will settle. While I was still not convinced with his promise, I received the message frm my mobile that the withdrawal has been restored.
