About 20 years ago, a man disappeared, but his ATM card was "supposedly" used the day after the disappearance. However, surveillance footage of the store shows no-one in the store physically used the machine.
I think perhaps someone spoofed the transaction as a rabbit trail, to make it look like the victim or another person used the card there other than the actual abductor.
Let's say someone wanted to place a transaction on a debit/ATM account for $X at a typical convenience store location at XYZ time/date without actually using the card at that time/date.
Provided they knew your PIN, how feasible is this 20 years ago, either at the machine itself, or via some other method?
