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.
All ATM's carry this emergency sequencer by law.

This information was recently broadcast on by Crime Stoppers
however it is seldom used because people just don't know about it.


After reading the Snopes answer it makes the original post erroneous Charles, check Mary's answer. I may have read it wrong, but it seems to be a urban myth, jmb

My PIN is a palindrome. So, every time I use it, they must be dispatching police to my location.shocked_yellowshocked_yellowshocked_yellow
