ATM mugger Hoax
« on: November 15, 2011, 04:16:29 PM »

Hi Guys, I have just been sent this by a friend of mine. If correct, it could be very useful indeed

PLEASE READ AS IT IS IMPORTANT,IF ITS RIGHT IT IS..   A MOST SERIOUS WARNING TO ALL USING AN ATM


 PLEASE READ AS IT IS IMPORTANT,

 
Pass it on................. I didn't know this did you?


ATM   PIN Number Reversal

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.
 

Please pass this along to everyone.




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