Just when you thought people could not possibly get any stupider

Than this reaches your email via a very pretty flight attendant you know who has an amazing body but like most of the residents of her province of Quebec isn't entirely there in the head:

INVERSEMENT DE VOTRE N.I.P. BANCAIRE; (numéro d'identification personnel) (BON À CONNAÎ TRE)

Si vous deviez être forcés par un voleur de retirer de l'argent de votre compte bancaire dans un guichet automatique;

Vous pouvez notifier la police en entrant votre N.I.P. dans l'ordre inverse.

Par exemple si votre numéro d'identification personnel est 1234 alors vous entrez sur le c lavier 4321. Le système du guichet automatique reconnaît que votre NIP est inversé; De la carte que vous avez placée dans la machine.

La machine vous donnera toujours l'argent que vous avez demandé;

Mais inconnu au voleur, la police sera immédiatement envoyée pour vous aider;

Cette information a été récemment émise à la télévision;

Cette procédure est rarement utilisée; parce que les gens ne connaissent pas son existence;

Faites circuler, s'il vous plaît au plus grand nombre possible;



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 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 help you.

This information was recently broadcasted on TV and it states that it is seldom used because people don't know it exists.

Please pass this along to everyone possible.
I just know that if the link to this page came with that email, people would still blindly forward it. After all, how many "Bill Gates and AOL are giving away billions for free" emails have we been made to suffer over the years? Not to mention the most glaring flaws if such a system were true.

(On the other hand, if you want an even more pathetic response to this hoax, look at the official advice from Constable Jane Naydiuk of the Saadich Police Department:
This technology may exist in the US but it is not in use in any Canadian jurisdictions that we know of. Google "Reverse Pin Panic Code" to see what the Urban Legend site says about this. Good question though.......
If you should be the subject of an armed robbery our message is that you should
  • comply with all demands (even if you don't see a weapon),
  • do not argue, lie, or attempt to trick the robber,
  • do not make any sudden moves,
  • tell the robber what you are doing (e.g .I am reaching in my coat for my wallet),
  • remain calm,
  • only give the robber what is asked for,
  • be observant so you can provide a good description,
  • call 911 as soon as it is safe to do so,
  • if safe to do so - look for the get-a-way car and get a plate description and direction of travel.
Heaven forbid the citizenry should get it into their heads that criminals like this are bullies and sometimes can be stopped without help from the donut-eating teenager-tasering local police force).

Hey fucker, we may not be full of oil in the ass like you Albertains are, but Quebecers are not as dumb as you may think. Get lost. By the way, how many language do you speak? Most of us are speaking both French and English. Can you? Probably not, you are too concerned by the oil filling up your big fat ass.

This comment is really not appropriate and sounds pretty racist to me :

You should excuse yourself for generalising that way
