ATM Crimestopper

Bedlam Info

This information was sent in by Jack Chambers. I hope I never need to use it, but it's useful to know. Thanks Jack.

ATM 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 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 ATMs 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
