I noticed this in one of those emails that gets passed around, on things you didn't know your mobile could do. Is this true? I wouldn't like to discover it's an urban myth with the Wallet Inspector looking over my shoulder.

Quote:
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.

This information was recently broadcast on CTV by Crime Stoppers
however it is seldom used because people just don't know about it.
Please pass this along to everyone.


I presume CTV is Canada, does it work everywhere? Or nowhere?

Yep! its a myth.

Actually it is the subject of a SPAM email that keeps doing the rounds every so often.

My view is, always check with site like Mcafee, Trend etc to see if the subject of these emails if true before sending them on to others. that way you avoid being part of the SPAM cycle.


Just do a Google on "Pin Number Reversal".

I don't think the Wallet Inspector would be very pleased as I dicked him around for 10 minutes, thanks!

For example, if your pin number is 1234


A little over 10 years ago we used to do business with a local bank whose policy it was to have a computer generate a random PIN for your ATM or debit card instead of allowing the customer to choose one.

I received my first debit card with the randomly generated PIN which happened to be 1234. I had to have it replaced about 2 years later. I received it and my new randomly generated PIN was 3333.

Now we do business with a bank that allows the customer to pick their own and it can be 4, 5 or 6 digits. This is much safer. Now I can use numbers nobody will ever guess. I use my birthday, street address, last 4 digits of my SS#......

^^I use the last five digits of the phone number our family had when I was a kid. I won't say how many years it's been since that number was associated with our family (my parents moved shortly after I flew from the nest).

And I couldn't tell you why I still remember it all these years later. But then, I still remember the number on my first driver's license. Some numbers just seem to stick with me.

I'm pretty sure the PIN numbers are encoded on the card using one-way encryption so you can't just pull the pin off the card with a reader. So yeah, the atm machine wouldn't check if you entered the pin backwards. Yay for the internets. Rolling Eyes

Me too, after nearly 60 years. I even use it for the secret question and answer some websites use for account confirmation. With the possible exception of my brother, nobody else in the world knows the answer.
