    Got one of those e-mails the other day that gives you tips, this may be of use to you.

    If you are robbed or hijacked etc and forced to go to a cash machine with your card a little known trick is to put your pin number in backwards ie 1234 as 4321 The machine recognises that by doing this you're in trouble and will still dispence the money but will also alert the police.

    I hope i am never in this position but well worth knowing.
    Can anybody confirm this

    this one was posted on the forum a few weeks ago and is utter rubbish.

    better off putting the wrong pin in a couple of times and the machine will retain the card.

    no card, no money. simple!

    And then they beat you up instead, not a pleasant option. :Eeek:

    Give em the money I say. Depends on how big they are, how many there are and whether their carying weapons.

    A good head butt will have some effect but what would be the consequence of that.:Eeek:
