Thou must give that cash back

A Catholic priest, Father Martin Magill, has told people it is a sin to hold onto money they received from faulty Bank of Ireland cash machines in Belfast.

He was speaking after Bank of Ireland machines in Anderstonstown and in the city centre recently paid out double the money requested, but the response of many was to treat the extra cash as an early Christmas present.

There have been reports that queues formed at the bank machines with people eager to benefit from the bank's mistake.

So why did nobody tell me about it? :-)
