I was e-mailed this by a friend. I was wondering if it works or is it just another internet hoax? I would like to know as I was threatened at an ATM machine once.


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.

Please pass this along to everyone possible.

Your message was forwarded to the Major Fraud Unit, and although it is a good idea, it does not work.
