A ATM card,
that looks real as any, you could
even write the PIN on the back,
you can use it if a ATM mugger has you,
or if stolen and used,
ATM machine calls the cops.

||I'm afraid I'd be constantly making dispatches of emergency workers instead of withdrawls of cash ... check out the "panic pin" ... I can imagine a terror plot to confuse/occupy local government responders using these ... not implying I'd do that, but I'm prone to clumsiness ... and poor typing
||Welcome to the HB, by the way
||I think it could work fine if someone held you up & you used it, but if somebody stole your wallet & tried to use it - they might notice that one card is shiny and new and the other is more worn looking & figure that the shiny one is the decoy & not use it.
||If the card were exactly like your real card, you'd be having the police notified all the time. BAD IDEA! Panic PIN is a much better idea. Besides, most muggers come up to you after you've put your card in the ATM.
