PLEASE PASS THIS INFORMATION ON.
The recent tragedy of a young woman being kidnapped and eventually killed, after she had repeatedly given the kidnapper a wrong pin to herATM card. If she knew the method below, she could have been saved. So I think it is important enough to let you know. Here you go...
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 broadcast on FOX TV and it states that it is seldom used because people don't know it exists.
PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG. You can go on snopes to verify..
