i just received an email that stated if you are ever getting robbed at an ATM you should put in your PIN backwards and police will know that you’re getting the jack (literally).
i immediately smelled bullshit, but what if this were really true and i didn’t know about another tip to stay safe? thank god for google/snopes. before i could send it off to my whole address book, i confirmed … it’s not true.
i like that it actually has some merit in truth, but it’s *not* true, so don’t be sending it out, kids. nifty idea, but as it’s discussed on snopes, could you really instantly figure out your PIN backwards with a gun to your head? i am sitting a desk pretty nonchalant, and i had to really think.
