Send your friend this reply.Perhaps one way to stop the robber taking your money from a ATM machine. Get extremely nervous, use three wrong pin numbers. Card now null and void.

I seem to remember reading that although it is a myth, the technology to achieve it is being researched.

we've seen on this subject in the past fortnight - the hoax message is being passed on to hundreds of thousands of people.

Please delete it if you find it amongst your emails, even if it comes from someone you know very well. Don't pass it on.

The police won't be immediately despatched to help you if you are being beaten to a pulp in full view of 6 cctv cameras; they only do theft from chicken farms

That's unfair on the Police.

If you try to defend yourself, you'll be inside before you can say "Jack Robinson".
