Singapore police have put a stop to a cash vending machine that pays out $50 notes when customers slot in $3. The machine is part of a publicity marketing stunt where a man sitting inside the vending box dispenses $50 to eager customers, as part of the campaign called ‘Three Dollar Baller’.

It is unclear what exactly Three Dollar Baller is and the organisation has said that more details will be out tomorrow, March 1. This did not stop eager individuals from swarming the box when it appeared downtown yesterday evening and this morning.

The vending machine first appeared on Orchard Road yesterday between 5pm and 8pm. Chong Wei Lim, a reader of The Independent, alerted us about the machine that was located outside the H&M outlet near 313@Somerset. Lim said, “A LOT of people were lining up and I see people actually getting the cash.”
