What could be a useful little tidbit

If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money
 from an ATM machine, you can notify the police by entering
your PIN in reverse.*
*For example, if your pin number is 1234, then you would
put in 4321. The ATM system recognizes that your PIN
number is backwards from the ATM card you placed in the
machine. The machine will still give you the money you
requested, but unknown to the robber, the police will be
immediately dispatched to the location. *
All ATM’s carry this emergency sequencer by law.

*This information was recently broadcast on Crime Stoppers
however it is seldom used because people just don't know
about it. *
