I am so happy about these cards because I received mine last week and have already used it to get $45,000. Mr. Frank Carlos of Email: is selling out these cards to support people in any kind of financial problem. I must be sincere to you, when I saw the advert, I believed it to be illegal and a hoax but when I contacted Mr. Frank Carlos, he confirmed to me that although it is illegal, nobody gets caught while using these cards because they have been programmed to disable every communication once inserted into any Automated Teller Machine(ATM).
