      For ATM users

      Hi DV'ers, I haven't been here for quite some time now (and I really missed it )

      I recently got an email from a friend and thought of sharing this here. I know most of you already know about this cause it has been in circulation for the past days.

      Here it goes:

      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 broadcast on TV and it states that it is seldom used because people don't know it exists.


      I just want to ask your views, opinions, violent reactions on this.

      It might be bullshit.
      You do this every fucking time.
      No sweat.
      No tears.
      No guilt.
      You do this every fucking time.

      It sounds like an urban myth.

      I'd like to test it, but if it's true I get in shit.

      If I should ever need it, if it's false I piss off the robber.

      I have a solution, make sure nobody is around when your getting money, and don't get money at 12 midnight in some store where nobody can see you...

      I usually get my $$ during the day, or morning when people are around, I nearly refuse to goto an atm at night, im such a sissy i know.
      I would rather die on my feet then to live on my knees.

      heh, well the main reason I'm afraid of being robbed is I can't defend myself if my life depended on it, I'm like one of those helpless girls being robbed at the atm, only im not a girl haha

      I'd probally cry if held at gunpoint and not be able to even withdraw the money, and end up being shot probably.

      Good luck trying to remember your pin # at all, let alone backwards, if you're being held at gunpoint.

      Edit: I just noticed it discusses that in the snopes article

      This reminds me, I REALLY need to go purchase my own little can of pepper spray.

      Someone almost hit me with his car earlier today and yelled at ME for it (I was crossing a pedestrian cross walk and was probably about half way across by the time the guy decided to try to hit me). I wish I had a can then.

      Eh, he could sue you for using a tazer, and for using pepperspray. Sometimes, spraying people in the face with mace isn't the smartest idea, no matter how moronic they are.

      Remember, pepperspray is for self-defense, not "omg he yelled at me so I sprayed him."

      I wasn't referring to if you got robbed at the ATM, I was referring to Mes Tarrant's shannanigans. You can't just spray someone in the face with pepper spray because they yelled at you. And unless she was walking across a crosswalk, at a red light, that would be jay-walking.. which probably murders any prosecution she'd try to come up with. I'm just saying, violence is not the answer... in some cases.
