Reverse Pin on ATM – Reality or Hoax?

How many times have you received the following email:

If you are ever forced by a thief or someone to take money out of an ATM machine , enter your PIN number reversed. So if your number is 1254, enter 4521.
The ATM machine will give you your money, but will automatically recognize this as a plea for help and will alert the police, unknown to the thief.
This option is in all ATM machines , but not many people know this.
Please pass this information on to others. No harm in keeping this in mind!!
BE CAREFUL, BE SAFE…

Now, this sounds very good, doesn’t it? But guess what? IT IS NOT TRUE!
