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 to everyone possible. Wish we have the same here in kuwait.

Hi 4 all

don veto .. nice & rational thinking

u know I worked on these machines by balancing & reloading one of them daily ... in fact i love the idea but not in this way ... the ATM camera should take the robber image or no thing can guide the police to him

E-Banking + personal banking are in progress of continuous developing so we must find out new trick & tips to stay with the Rhythm.

Bo7amed .. ur right thanx 4 god ..
