The ATM gave her $100s instead of $5s; the bank wants them back

Christina Ochoa might've felt like the luckiest girl in the world when an ATM at Central National Bank in Wichita, Kansas, allegedly dispensed a $100 bill that should have been a $5.

Now she's being sued for the return of $11,600 (plus interest) that the bank says she fraudulently withdrew in 50 nighttime transactions from Jan. 13 through 17, according to a U.S. News & World Report article.

Additionally, Central wants to confiscate a pair of vehicles purchased around the time of the withdrawals. The $3,000 down payment on one car consisted entirely of $100 bills, the bank said.

Ochoa's mother, Christy Ochoa, is also named in the suit, which claims that she drove her daughter to the ATM to make the withdrawals. Both women have denied any wrongdoing, and say the cars were purchased with proceeds from student loans and an insurance settlement.
