It's safe to say we could all use a little extra cash. But imagine going to your ATM, withdrawing money and getting more than double the amount you asked for.

The ATM at Bank of America in Fresno, California gave away $50 bills instead of $20 bills all day Saturday.

The bank isn't saying how much money was accidentally given away or what went wrong, but it's likely someone put the $50 in the $20 slot. Now the big question, should those customers give the money back?

"It was the machine, it was their bank mistake," said Bank of America customer Daniel Salas. "I don't think they should give the money back."

"I think it's better to do the right thing because eventually karma is going to get back to you," said another customer Martin Arce.

The bank says it has surveillance video and the personal information of all the customers who walked away with extra cash and it plans to get its money back.
