Latest e-mail hoax regarding the reversal of PIN #

Read more about this latest hoax.


Here is how the original appears

"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 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. "

Sorry but this is an urban myth. Better to use common sense and give the the thief what he wants. There is no amount of money worth your life. Better yet if you have to use an ATM do so only in secure areas.

Happy Holidays
