Important:Safety/Security Tips At The ATM

NB: IM forced to look at this post a fresh because of this link :
http://sandwalk.blogspot.com/2007/03/more-on-reverse-pin-numbers.html and also because of your wonderful comments:Seems to be an hoax and i will be checking it out with my bank just to confirm,if tis true this post will be deleted.hanks for looking out!

This is a must read and a most important piece of information in case you are carjacked or kidnapped and forced to withdraw money from your bank ATM please do the following:

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.

Yes !Indeed please share this information to all your friends ,associates and relatives!may just prove handy one day!Please note that this applies only in Kenya (i dont know about other countries!)


  1. Hello..Am told the information you gave is not correct...please confirm, see link

  2. You know this does not work. 2 yrs ago I got a forwarding with this info, and I contacted the security dept where I work, thinking my 10,000 colleagues in the org would benefit. The security dept got back and said 'no way'.

    It'd be nice if it did. Imagine if ya pin was 2222, or 3003.

  3. Ya really a nice and informative post... Fine dude.... Keep in touch in my blog friend. Why no contacts and visits?
