    Received this earlier - and it makes sense in a lot of respects.

    Not tried it (thank The Lord) - but, were I to find myself in this position, I would have nothing to lose and everything to gain if it's true.
    If it isn't true and the money isn't delivered from the ATM, then just continue with the correct PIN No...

    As it says...

    'FWIT'

    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 ATMís 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. This is the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so pass it on to your family and friends.

    i seem to remember this being posted a while back, and i think that i said then, that it must be a fake because it only works if your pin number CAN be reversed, if you had 1221 as your pin for instance it wouldnt work anyway.... or it would have called the police everytime you got money out lololol.... Smile

    I would have thought that the reverse of one persons PIN would be someone elses pin number so how can this possibly work, surely it just would not cough up the cash.

    ...and the idea of the police being dispatched immediately to any crime other than a motoring offence is not believable...sounds to me like another urban legend Smile

    PINs aren't unique to each person or card.
    Firstly, most cards let you change the PIN to something you find more memorable and secondly, if they were that'd mean a maximum of just under 10000 cards that could be handled - depending on what combinations of digits, if any, are disallowed as being too insecure.
