    I just rcvd a email from a friend of mine who forwarded the following e-mail...could this be true?

    "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"

    Message claims that if you are forced by robbers to withdraw money from an ATM, you can secretly alert police by entering your PIN in reverse

    False - This technology exists but is not yet in general use.

    its not possible

    cuz the atm machine wont give da cash if u enter the pin code in reverse order cuz one account is supposed to have a single pin

    so if da pin code is 1234 and u enter 4321 why should da machine give u da money ; beats da purpose of having a PIN CODE

    This comes from a banker :D. That is false info and if you do that thrice your ATM card will either be captured in the machine or will be blocked for a day.

    If you really get stuck in such situation try to get the robber's video shot by the camera installed in the ATM.

    well now what will happen next...

    People do that false to she whether this really works or not.... and then the robbers are more smart than use... when they see that it is not giving us cash and giving a wrong pin message they will understand what the matter is.. as the police will tale atleast 30mins to reach the spot... after all this is Indian Police
