However, when customers using a cash machine in Corpus Cristi, Texas, received such a message claiming to be from a man stuck inside, it was no laughing matter.
The ATM technician shouted and passed notes begging for help through the machine'sreceipt slot for about three hours but his appeals were mostly ignored, policesaid.
The door of the ATM was kicked down, and sure enough, there was a man behind the machine who was trapped there! Even more alarming may be receiving a note from that person trapped in the ATM.
When police arrived they inspected the machine and said they heard "little voices" coming from the machine.
The man attempted to get help by writing notes reading, "Please help, I'm stuck in here", and passing them through the receipt slot of the ATM.
One read, "Please help".

The contractor resorted to posting notes begging ATM customers for help. "So we are thinking this is a joke". Luckily, someone did take it seriously and called a baffled police-team for assistance.
Ingeniously, the employee came up with the idea to pass notes through the ATM, telling people he was trapped inside and asking them to call his boss, according to the New York Times.
Senior Officer Richard Olden told local news agency KRIS TV that when people stopped by to withdraw cash, the worker made a decision to slip out SOS notes through the receipt slot.
Police freed the man, but since there was no crime committed, details and records are slim, Hooper said. "It's got to be a joke", he added.
"So everybody's OK, but you'll never see this again in your life", said Olden.
