Since yesterday I have seen this hoax once again being passed around Facebook. The gist is this: If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM, you can notify the police by entering your PIN in reverse. For example if your PIN is 1234 then you would put in 4321. The ATM recognizes that your PIN is backwards from the ATM card you placed in the machine.

52 Week Saving Plan

I saw an image posted on Facebook the other day and it made perfect sense to me to use something like it to save for next holiday season. The premise is simple, you save a little bit each week and at the end of the year you will have over $1,000 ($1,378.00 to be exact) to spend frivolously on your loved ones! No pain involved…  Well maybe a […] Read more »
