In addition, other extractions were made in Boston (United States) and Birmingham (England), also within a minute of each other.
In the summary, there were US $ 917. “They did not get more because I had no more funds,” said the retiree, adding: “How can it be that the bank has not found out about these movements? trip, being that I receive a provincial retirement ”.
