Let me try it:

No, that doesn't work anymore.  Alizeran's just screwing with you.

It will work with debit card numbers and pins:

dittybopper: Want a random PIN?  Throw 4 10-sided dice, write down the number.


Now this idea I like.  I've been looking and looking for new and creative uses of my rather pricey gaming dice since I stopped gaming and now the only dice game I play is with 5d-6 only, that being 10K.  Maybe I should reset my PIN just for the heck of it.  Just cannot bring myself to get rid of my "weird" dice as the old man calls them.

sendtodave: Article isn't loading for me... Does it mention how every PIN and password in China must contain the number eight? Preferably all eights, if possible.

I think that's why so many hacking attempts come from here: half the country uses 88888888 as their password. makes for excellent zombies.


I believe 8 is considered a very lucky number in China?

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: 8008 spells "Boob"


www.mcpeepants.com

Yes, I am back from the boob dimension and there was much to see, and many chairs made available to me free of charge upon my arrival. But I tire from my journey. You'll excuse me.
 
2013-07-31 03:51:04 PM  
Yes! My ATM pin of 4321 isn't on there!
 
2013-07-31 05:14:08 PM  
I like to use a PIN that would spell something on a telephone keypad.  For example 2273 spells "CARD"
 
2013-07-31 05:19:22 PM  

Great Janitor: But here's the question, why worry about the PIN?  If you have someone's credit card or debit card, just head to the gas station, gas up your car (no PIN needed), go inside, buy a soda, get cash back at the maximum amount and go.


Hmm? I have to use my pin at all the gas stations here in Virginia. And if I try to use it as a credit card, it asks for my ZIP code instead.

They actually warn against that, as "Love" (5683) is one of the commonly used PINs (and phone passwords).

As long as it's not LOVE though yer probably alright. :)

But what about "fart" (3278) or "anus" (2687).  Do they warn against those?

I certainly hope not. lol :)

Southern100: Great Janitor: nekom: rikkidoxx: After three attempts the ATM will lock and keep the card.

Some do, some don't.  Recently the PNC ATM's, at least in my area, take the card, you pick a language, then it gives the card back and THEN you put the PIN in.

The ones near me you just swipe.  But here's the question, why worry about the PIN?  If you have someone's credit card or debit card, just head to the gas station, gas up your car (no PIN needed), go inside, buy a soda, get cash back at the maximum amount and go.

That stocking mask is going to look awful suspicious at a gas station (not to mention your license plate number).. At a remote ATM though, not so much.


All the gas stations I use require a PIN if you're using a debit card, inside OR at the pump. If you're using it as a credit card at the pump, you have to input the zip code on the account's mailing address.
 
2013-07-31 05:49:55 PM  
Ha! Mine's not on the list. Fooled them.  It's actually 3051.

/damn I'm clever
 
2013-07-31 06:49:04 PM  
I'm safe. 3333 is not on the list.

I call shenanigans. You have clearly entered a phone number, not a ssn

shiatty deal.

Also, robbery is when they take the money from you after you withdraw it yourself and they pull a gun on you. Robbery is not guessing someone else's PIN code if you have their card.

fredbox: Also, robbery is when they take the money from you after you withdraw it yourself and they pull a gun on you. Robbery is not guessing someone else's PIN code if you have their card.


Correct, that's not just robbery, but robbery, wire fraud, grand theft, and federal felony bank robbery.

Russ1642: Didn't think banks even allowed those as PINs. You might as well walk around with a pocketful of cash.


My bank  assigned me one of those PINs on my ATM card.
