Not sure what I'll do next time I get a dodgy note.
Last year - when I was a final year mature nursing student and as skint as I've ever been in my life - I drew £40.00 from a local cash machine. As I put the two £20.00 notes in my purse it was obvious that they were made of the wrong type of paper - they were far to thick. As the cash machine was part of the Royal Bank of Scotland I immediately took the notes in there. The notes were examined and I was told it was nothing to do with them as they were Clydesdale Bank's notes. Therefore I immediately walked over to the Clydesdale Bank and presented them there with the honest explanation of how I had come by these notes. My name and address were taken and about ten days later I received a very curt letter saying that as the notes were fakes they had been destroyed.
All well and good for everyone except me who had lost what amounted to two week's food budget for myself and my son.
Who said honesty pays? Would I be so honest in the future? ........... ?????????

ATMs are not filled by the bank staff with random £10 notes that have been handed in by dodgy customers. The cash cassettes are loading at a central cash depot, using notes that have been checked using sophisticated machinery which detects dodgy notes and rejects them. It also sorts out damaged and worn notes because they jam up the ATMs and consequently make them unavailable to customers.
So, no, they don't do what you suggest grayme-m.
You are far more likely to get a dodgy note over the counter of a bank than from an ATM.
