Why do ATM's keep card sometimes?
Even non-branch ATM's that do not return your card. Why does this happen?
I recently had to wait till my bank open and had a employee fish it out. Kept it for no reason same thing happened with wells fargo so its not just one bank or ATM.
Tonight I was at a gas station and the ATM kept someones card so this reminded me of this issue. Kind of crazy seems like a big problem if this is common.

The return mechanical mechanism didn't work.

If you don't pull it out within a period of time, the ATM will "eat" it. It's so that if you left it by mistake, some else can't take it.

They do that when they are expired or have been reported missing, that's the only time I've heard of it happening. Other than that it's a fault.
