Another almost unbelievable story on behalf of an ATM scam. Where the scam comes from is uncertain, but Helmut Castaneda is one of the representatives of the ATM scam, not the real one, who was robbed of his identity, but probably crazy Nigerians who want to earn a living with it.
The story is bogus from end to end. Cheers, another moon shine.
Therefore: Do not answer, the card does not exist, do not send any personal information, no money. Move the mail to the trash.
