Default ATM - PIN Number Reversal

does anyone know if this is true?


ATM - PIN Number Reversal - Good to Know


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 system 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 the location. This information was recently

broadcasted on CTV by Crime Stoppers however it is seldom used because people just don't

know about it.



Please pass this along to everyone.

Never heard of this before, and I'm pretty doubtful, mainly cos my pin number is the same backwards as it is forwards.....
I'd have to say it's BS

Simple, go and try it.
If the law turns up fair play.

BUT, I very much doubt they will.

Even if it did work, I'm sure said Police would not attend. Rather they will stay hidden behind a bush with a speed camera as less effort.

load or rubbish!!! even if it were true by the time the police got there, the robber would have emptied your bank account, stabbed you about 24 times and then gone to live in brazil.

The alarm at my previous employer was like that, it triggered a silent/panic alarm. The idea being that the bloke holding a gun to your head wouldn't blow your brains out until the plod turned up with blues and two's The only time the alarm activated during the day, due to a fault, it showed up as a panic alarm. I was looking out of the office window wondering why half a dozen coppers were jogging across the road to our office from the station opposite. They were not happy it was a false alarm, I think it interrupted tea break!

Some people believe anything

As has been said - 1221 - for example would get the police on your shoulder
