ATM Pin Number Reversal is….. FALSE!!!

This is some latest circulated mail going round:


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.

    Queen … got such security features here meh ?? It sounds like a good idea, though !! But our PDRM HAS to upgrade their IT facility & set up a JOINT COMMITTEE with BANK NEGARA & ALL BANKs to enable such features to work here. It may take some (very long) time … hehe

    The Queen says:  *yawnnnnn….. go read my black prints again.

    But really will not work for some number combinations leh……at gun point, already panic liao…..still can rememeber pin already good liao…still expect me to terbalik it ah,,,think quite hard leh….woahahahah

    The Queen says:  If forgot the pin number even better.  Simply punch your password .3 times. After that your card kena makan by the machine can say bye-bye to the robber lo. (psst… that is provided he don’t harm you la)

    will never work over here in malaysia, even though the bankers buy it, unless the robber is willing to sit down for a coffee with u at the nearest mamak stall, chat for an hour more, take a nap and have roti kosong for breakfast when he wakes up before the police arrives.
