Here they are:
0000 0001 0002 0003 0004 0005 0006 0007 0008 0009
0010 0011 0012 0013 0014 0015 0016 0017 0018 0019
.....
9990 9991 9992 9993 9994 9995 9996 9997 9998 9999

Seriously, though, if you are one of the "1-in-10", then chances are your credit card PIN is the following 4 numbers:


"1234"

How "duh!" is that?

The next two most common ones are "0000" and "1111", so with three tries at a PIN, a person with a stolen card has approximately a 19% chance of using one of these three numbers to score some cash at the cash machine.
