HOW TO CALL THE POLICE FROM AN ATM
If you are ever threatened near an ATM, simply enter your code backwards and it will instantly call the police. I have tried this (pretending to be ignorant) and the police have shown up within minutes. Apparently, ATMs were installed with the software to recognize an inverted form of your pin number as an emergency call - you must already be logged in, however. There have been multiple reports of people being saved by the police in the States by using this technique. In New Jersey a bank robbery was foiled by an old lady who had heard about this and typed in the code after seeing a hold up. Interestingly INTERESTING!
