Robbery at ATM terminals – beware

If you are ever forced by a thief or someone to take money out of an ATM machine, enter your pin number reversed. So if your number is 1254 mark 4521. The ATM machine will give you your money, but will automatically recognize this as a plea for help and will alert the police unknown to the thief. This option is in all ATM machines, but not many people know this. Please pass this information on to others.

  1. In which part of the world is this available?

    Assuming it is in Nigeria, what is the response time for the police? Even in the developed world, can we have an idea of the police response time? Or is this for the banks record to clear you of fraudlent claims?

    I thought I should ask!!!

  2. This is a hoax, right? It doesn’t matter ‘cos if after ATM coughs out cash and the mugger decides to neutralize u so u won’t get help, Police arrival would have to first resuscitate u and then u have to get your shit together to make a coherent statement trynna give some descriptions.

    By this time, the ole go don de drink Ultimate!
