ATM Safety: Alert Police While Taking Out Money
Safety is utmost important for everyone especially when you're alone and at a place new to you, like me now. xD And you might need to be a bit extra careful when you take out money from your ATM machine, right?

So Here's The Story
Do you know that you can alert the police when you take out your money from the ATM machine instantly? I didn't, until seconds ago an acquaintance of mine emailed me about it. Thanks ATK. =) This is very helpful and crucial when you have a robber threatening your life and you're forced to take out the money right that moment.

Alert Police With Reversed Number
Here's what the email reads...

"When a robber forces you to take money from the ATM, do not argue or resist. You might not know what he or she might do to you. What you should do is to punch your PIN in the reverse mode.

I.e. if your PIN # is 1254, you punch 4521.

The moment you punch in the reverse mode, the money will come out, but will be stuck into the machine half way out and it will alert the Police (security) without the notice of the robber. tz

Every ATM has it; it is specially made to signify danger and help. Not everyone is aware of this."

So spread this message to everybody and lets stop ATM robbers from this moment onwards. A bit hard if you have an 8-digit password like that kan, but it's worth the thinking. xD

Shine on,
