Was travelling through Adelaide earlier this year (We live in North Qld) and stopped into a servo to pay for fuel. My wife went into the ATM to get some money out and the damn thing ate her CC. Not to worry, she thought, she will use another one (she didn't stop to think why it had eaten the card when we had thousands of dollars left on the card in credit). Anyway, it ate the second card (our last card!). We were stuck in Adelaide late on a Friday arvo (after banks closed), $50 in our wallet, No local branch (only a Qld bank!), absolutely no help whatsoever from the staff.....they wouldn't even place a note on the machine for future users, stating it's not their problem if others get screwed.

Fortunately we could ring up a friend in Adelaide and help us out until monday when we had to fax a letter to our Qld bank to get them to transfer some money to our friend. They were not helpful either as they could send a new card to us (in a couple of weeks if we gave them an address to send it to).

Learnt a couple of lessons on that trip ;-)

I had one of those fee free cards with a rounded corner & fed it into a machine at Bourke at the fuel depot. Swallowed the card & would not return it so at 2:27 am had to phone the number on the box and got the manager out of bed to free my card... Imagine my horror when he arrived and pointed to the sign on the machine that read "this machine is not compatible with virgin Cards"... I didn't actually see the sign as it was on the outside of the box on the side away from the light....
