- A man has stunned internet users over his recent achievement in a bid to make money
-The man celebrated acquiring a personal ATM machine and struck poses with it
- Many people have questioned the legality of his action
A man has got social media users talking with his recent money move. The man @flexeatss announced on Twitter that he had purchased a personal Automated Teller Machine (ATM).
Striking poses with the new machine, the self-taught chef excitedly said he looks forward to a year of passive earnings for himself.
His tweet reads:
"I purchased & installed my first ATM machine today .. passive Income all 2021."
It is not common to find private individuals owning ATM machines and this raised eyebrows with many people questioning whether his action had legal backing.
Some others remarked that his was another form of wallet and wasn't in any way special.
"hold up, its legal omg. I thought he's gonna steal money from peoples cards this way. I've never seen an atm that doesnt belong to a bank."
"can someone explain how this is worth while like i would imagine it wouldn’t make more than 20 dollars a day in transaction fees but idk maybe i just never use atms."
"Depending on location he can make bank off the fees over the weekend, in the mornings during rush hour, in bases of travel: airports, train stations..
"It’d be smart to place them around places that accept cash only."
"At the risk of sounding dumb (but I’m being genuine I swear) after buying the machine, you put your own money in there to get going? Take out a loan? What."
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a Nigerian boy had displayed creativity as he built a piggybank that works just like an ATM.
In a video that was shared by Channels TV, the young boy could be seen operating the piggybanks he made for kids.
The boy named Afolayan, who said he wants to be an engineer, noted that his family and friends have been supportive morally and financially.
The young boy used cartons and switch to build the piggybank. Nigerians were impressed with the invention.
