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
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.

Thats a great idea. Not so good if the only pin number you could remember is something like 2442. :D
GREAT BIT OF INFO !!!!
THANKS JUDI !!!!!!!!!!
Not tooo sure how true this is but it looks like the technology is certainly available anyway...
None of you have ever been robbed have you??
It is a brilliant idea but someone who has never been robbed must of come up with it.

But if your link confirms this, then thats really low to send this message out when its not true!!!
Unfortunately there is a huge amount of such emails doing the rounds.. these can be anything from sick kids, winning by sending emails to friends, dangerous foods etc.. the vast majority are false....
