It's subtly different. "...no tiene dinero" = "...has no money/doesn't have money;" "...no tiene ningún dinero" = "...doesn't have any money."

Lovegood, if you put "THE" bank, you missed the word Este.

All you other people who used the following endings for the sentence should report it. The bank "... doesn't have money" and " ... has no money" do mean the same thing.

Just for fun, I added exclamation points on the Spanish translation I was supposed to type, aņd laughed when I saw the alternate translation had them, too. :-) (I would be alarmed, if it were my bank!)
