Reverse ATM pin security HOAX

Posted on Updated on

This good security feature is nothing but a HOAX. Think about it!

If your pin number is 1234 then 4321 seems ok; but if 2552 is your number; how do you reverse that number? Also if you have 1231 – logic is reversed 1st and 4th digit triggers the alarm (hehe). And so on and so on.
Sorry to all who believed this email; but it is only a hoax.

By the way; the email is something like: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 ATM’s carry this emergency sequencer by law.

This information was recently broadcast on Crime Stoppers however it is seldom used because people just don’t know about it.

Please pass this along to everyone.
