I had a very similar experience a couple years ago. It was Scotia Bank (by the ADO on 5th). Bank employee said I had to contact my bank. My bank credited it within a day and said it's a "temporary credit pending investigation". A few weeks later I get a message saying all was confirmed.

I got the sense from the Scotia Bank employee that this wasn't the first time this had occurred at that ATM.
