I thought I remembered reading somewhere that European ATMs will not accept PINs that start with a "0". My bank says it should be no problem, but the person I talked with didn't give me much confidence. Does anybody know for sure?
A myth that pops up here every so often. Inevitably several people weigh in to say that their PINs start with 0 and they've had no problem.
Yep. Another urban legend. You can have a pin with all zeroes if you wish.
Old story that is hard to die. In the very early days of ATMs, like the first year in 1904, the zero was reserved for some bank operations. Maybe last two years and the story got started and no one can completely kill it. You should have more confidence in your bank.
I've had zeros at the beginning of my ATM pin. Never a problem. It's a myth. Just don't have any alpha characters as European ATMs don't show the letters on the number keys.
