Toronto Man Destroys BITCOIN ATM Machine After Wife Loses Out $12,000

A Bitcoin ATM machine? Really? These things exist?

A woman received a phone call from Canada Revenue Agency saying she owed $12K dollars in taxes, when she objected the CRA guy puts on the phone a Durham police officer who tells the woman she will indeed be arrested if she doesn't comply. So the woman goes and deposits $12,000 cash on a Bitcoin ATM at a Hasty Mart in Toronto. The husband comes home from work and furiously goes to the Hasty Mart to destroy the ATM machine, he is now charged with criminal destruction of property.

I’ve seen a bitcoin atm in a small convenience store inside the path in downtown Toronto.
Isn't it great to live in the 21st century where deleting history has become more important than making it.

You put real money in along with a Bitcoin address and it sends Bitcoin to the address.

So these things take-in cash bills but don't dispense? How do I set up an account where people can send me money via bitcoin ATM? How do I get those 12K on my end?? I don't need ID?
