pin number



Good to know just in case.



If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money From

An ATM machine, you can notify the police by entering your

Pin # in Reverse.

For example if your pin number is 1234 then you would put in

4321. The ATM Recognizes That your pin number is backwards from the ATM card you

Placed in the Machine.

The machine will still give you the money you requested, but

Unknown To the robber,

The police will be immediately dispatched to help you.

This information was recently broadcasted on TV and it

States that it

Is

Seldom used

because people don't know it exists.

Thumbs down

I did a little bit of searching and this is a link I came up with that gives you all the info.

http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/a/atm-911.htm

Summary of the eRumor:
An alert that if you ever find yourself in a scary situation at a banking ATM machine, such as a thief forcing you to withdraw cash, just enter your personal identification number (PIN) backwards. That will automatically send a message to the police that you are in trouble and they will respond to the machine. The eRumor says that most people don't know about this.

The Truth:
The eRumor is false because there isn't anywhere that we could find where this emergency procedure at ATM machines is actually being used.


Nice Idea.. but at this time its not being used.

You are very welcome Muddyguy. I have found the easiest way to search things like this is with google. Its still a great idea too bad the banks don't seem to think so yet.

I guess if you had a pin like 444 or 5665 you would be SOL!!

if you punch in your pin backwards, it won't let you take money out, it will tell you incorrect password.. security on cards is why you have a pin....
