    Question Got such happening meh?

    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.

    Got this from email. Is there such things happening in local?
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    That's a good one. But then again PIN can be changed. So if one chooses to stick with such a combo n someone robs u, then tough luck...

    Yah, this is a true incident -- last time long time ago, there was actually one time when if you draw money from ATM, the money come out but the balance remained the same. Long queues at the ATM, siah ! The bank had to call police to chase after those people to return the money.

    Sounds like a hoax. I'm sure the ATM will not withdraw any cash if the wrong PIN is entered.

    I think Jurong Point's ATM machine spat out money non-stop few years back. They said "We have you in our CCTV. You must return the money" wasted I wasn't there.

    Must learn from Chinese marital arts movie.

    Robber holds victim at knife point at ATM.

    Victim enters special code to withdraw cash, robber grabs cash when it is dispensed...

    Robber runs away... then falls dead 10 steps away....

    Notes were laced with poison...

    Bank/Victim - 1 Robber - 0

    Ha ha ha...

    But I've got this email. Don't know how true it is?

    If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM
    machine, you can get a handgun to use by entering your Pin # with 00 in front of it.

    For example if your pin number is 1234 then you would put in 001234. The
    ATM recognizes from pin number you've keyed that your life is in danger and it will spit out a handgun for your protection.

    If you haven't used a gun before, please key in 02 for instructions. For more bullets it's 03. And if you want to complain that the gun is not working please key in 04.

    this is true!! i saw it in the TV! The TV said that it is seldom used because little people know about it!

    They also say if you enter 99 infront of the machine, they will spit out a automatic getaway car for you.
