    Default CC Safety Tip

    I just found out that should you ever be forced to withdraw monies from an ATM machine, you can notify the police by entering your Pin # in reverse. The machine will still give you the monies you requested, but unknown to the robber, etc, the police will be immediately dispatched to help you. The broadcast stated that this method of calling the police is very seldom used because people don't know it exists, and it might mean the difference between life and death.
    Hopefully, none of you will have to use this, but I wanted to pass it along just in case you hadn't heard of it.

    Well, the idea is nice, but what if your pin # was the same forwards and backwards. How would it know?

    Yeah, like 1001. DOH!

    Just goes to show you have to take everything with a grain of salt. Wouldn't hurt to try it though. Of course, I think the best way to approach it would be NOT to let the situation get to that point.

    People may think I'm nutz, but I've turned to people while at the ATM and told them to "back off" when I felt they were too close to me.
