Do You Say ATM Machine and PIN Number?

“ATM machine” (Automated Teller Machine machine) and “PIN number” (Personal Identification Number number)… RAS Syndrome (Redundant Acronym Syndrome syndrome).

“BVN number” (Bank Verification Number number) is also an example of RAS Syndrome.

Simply say “ATM”, “PIN”, “BVN”. There’s no need to tack on an extra “machine” or “number”. ‪#‎YouNeedAnEditor‬
