I got this from a friend made on my trip to Antarctica. Pass it on:
Recently a young woman was kidnapped and eventually killed after she had repeatedly gave the kidnapper a wrong PIN to her ATM card. If she knew the method below, she could have been saved.
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 policewill be immediately dispatched to help you.
This information was recently broadcasted on FOX TV and it states that it is seldom used because people don't know it exists.
