Who was Teresa Fidalgo?
The original Teresa Fidalgo ghost story video, A CURVA
According to the story, In 1983, a vehicle accident near Sentra, Portugal resulted in the tragic death of a young woman named Teresa Fidalgo. Fast forward two decades, and on July 12, 2003, a video reenacting the incident surfaced on the internet and quickly went viral.
The video showed a group of friends driving their car late at night, discussing ghosts and other supernatural topics. Suddenly, they spot a young woman walking along the roadside, and invite her into their car for a ride.
As they journeyed together, the woman pointed out a location, stating “this is where I died”. The eerie comment unnerved the other passengers. But things took a turn for the worse when the car crashed into a tree, leaving the woman screaming in agony with blood all over her face.
The male and female passengers didn’t survive the crash, while the third passenger, David, survived but was unable to provide a clear explanation of what happened that night. To make matters even more mysterious, Teresa’s body was never found.
The story of Teresa Fidalgo has captured the attention of many, and some believe that her spirit continues to haunt the location of her untimely death. The video has been shared and discussed widely on social media, sparking debates and discussions about the paranormal.

The story of Teresa Fidalgo has gained immense popularity on the internet, particularly in the form of chain letters that warn readers of dire consequences if they fail to share the story with others.
Despite the lack of evidence supporting the claims made in the story, it has become one of the most widely circulated ghost stories on the internet.
A few people in the comments on the Teresa Fidalgo posts claim that they have had spooky happenings occur not long after reading the message, but no one has been harmed.
One Quora user reported:
“This is actually true when my friend sent me a message. Of course I didn’t believe that but when I was up late I heard noise under my bed, that was when I went scared then that when it happend something breathe on me I went up and I slept with my older sister”
“Yes, I know that Teresa will sleep by your side. I’m a 9 year old and my friend sent me this. I thought it was fake at first but at night I started hearing weird things. I shivered, I wanted to sleep real bad but I was terrified. The next day I started investigating. I Sent 20 pictures. The same thing happened at night. I noticed I only sent 19 pictures so I sent one more. The pain was gone… I would say that Teresa will sleep by your side. This is a warning to everyone.”
Possible Explanations for the Teresa Fidalgo Sightings
Is the ghost of Teresa Fidalgo causing the ghostly happenings for people that didn’t forward the message? Probably not.
For a start, the person that created the infamous video of the ghost of Teresa Fidalgo claims that he made the story up and it is completely fictional.
David Rebordão created the video in 2003 to drum up some attention before promoting his upcoming movie “Virus”. He even said in an interview with Channel TVI that he was surprised by the longevity of the urban legend that was sparked by his video.
The most likely cause of any paranormal happenings after reading the story is a state of hyper vigilance caused by fear. When you are afraid you are more likely to notice all of the strange little things that happen, such as a rogue gust of wind or creaking noise.
One possibility though is that the heightened state of awareness is allowing actual spirits to be able to communicate with you more clearly. Don’t be scared though! Spirits can’t harm you. If you’re afraid just firmly tell them to leave and you will be fine.

Possible Scientific Explanation for Green Orbs
When it comes to capturing unexplainable green orbs in photographs, the most logical explanation often lies in the behavior of light. These orbs can manifest due to a phenomenon called lens flare.
Lens flare occurs when light enters the camera lens and interacts with the internal components, causing artifacts such as orbs, streaks, or circles to appear in the resulting image.
Modern digital cameras, like the ones in our phones, have lenses coated with a thin film to reduce internal reflection and minimize lens flare. However, under certain conditions, intense sources of light—especially those emitting in the green spectrum—can still produce these compelling orbs.
This is especially true when the light source is positioned at an oblique angle relative to the camera lens, leading to internal reflections and refractions within the lens system.
Natural and artificial sources of bright light, such as the sun, street lamps, or flashlights, are common culprits leading to the appearance of green orbs in photographs. Even in low-light or night photography, the use of a camera flash can inadvertently cause the phenomenon.
As the flash interacts with particles in the air or small water droplets, it generates reflections and artifacts that materialize as vibrant green orbs in the final image. Therefore, while these green orbs may initially appear as mysterious or supernatural, they are sometimes the result of the complex interplay between light, lenses, and photographic technology.

The Pollock Twins
The Pollock Twins are thought to be one of the strongest cases in support of reincarnation.
In 1957, Jacqueline and Joanna Pollock lost their lives in a car accident. Their parents believe they were reincarnated the following year as their twin sisters.
The Tragic Death of Jacqueline and Joanna Pollock
In May 1957, in a small town called Hexham in England, two sisters, Joanna (11 years old) and Jacqueline (6 years old), along with their friend Anthony (9 years old), were going to church when a driver who was on drugs hit them. Sadly, the two sisters and Anthony died almost immediately.
The driver, a local woman, deliberately hit the children because she had been separated from her own kids. This incident became widely known in Britain, and the woman was later sent to a psychiatric hospital.
The Pollock Twins and Hints of Reincarnation
Armchair Investigator covers the case of the Pollock Twins
After Joanna and Jacqueline died, their mom and dad, Florence and John Pollock, were devastated. But when Florence got pregnant again, John had an unshakable belief the two girls would come back as twins.
Florence and John were Catholics and often fought about the idea of being born again. Florence didn’t agree with John’s thoughts, and it caused a lot of problems. It was even said that their whole marriage was in danger, and Florence almost wanted a divorce.
Neither parent’s family had a history of twins, and the doctor thought Florence would have only one baby. But surprisingly, on October 4, 1958, Florence gave birth to twin girls named Gillian and Jennifer.
Even though the twins looked the same, they had different marks on their bodies, which is uncommon. Jennifer had a small mark on her left hip, just like Jacqueline, and a mark on her forehead, similar to a scar Jacqueline had.
When the twins were three months old, the family moved to Whitley Bay, near Hexham. But as the girls grew up, they seemed to remember Hexham well, even though they didn’t grow up there.
When the family returned to Hexham when the twins were four, Gillian and Jennifer recognized and named places they had never seen, like the school Joanna and Jacqueline went to, the Hexham Abbey, and a playground their sisters used to love. They even seemed to know the way to the playground without ever having seen it before.
The twins could also recognize their late sisters’ toys and asked for them by name. Even though Florence had put away the toys, the twins remembered them as if they were their own. They knew the toys’ names, divided them exactly like their sisters did, and even mentioned that Santa Claus gave them the toys, which was true.
Florence and John noticed that the twins had similar personalities to their older sisters. Just like Joanna was protective of Jacqueline, Gillian took care of Jennifer and seemed more grown-up. The parents also observed that the twins liked the same games and foods as their sisters.
In the first few years, Florence didn’t believe John’s idea that the twins were “reincarnated.” But when she overheard them talking about the car accident that took their sisters’ lives, she changed her mind. Once, she heard the girls playing a game where they reenacted their sisters’ accident. Gillian was holding Jennifer’s head, saying, “The blood’s coming out of your eyes. That’s where the car hit you.”
Once, Gillian pointed to Jennifer’s forehead birthmark and said, “That’s the mark Jennifer got when she fell on a bucket.” It’s interesting that the twins also seemed scared of cars. When they were younger, they had bad dreams about getting hit by a car. Gillian and Jennifer would get scared and nervous around cars. When a car started in an alley, John remembered the girls holding onto each other, shouting, “The car is coming to get us!”
Around their fifth birthday, the memories of their ‘past lives’ slowly went away, and they started living normal lives. Even though they forgot about the accident, Gillian later remembered seeing herself playing in a sandbox at a house in Whickham. She had never been to Whickham, but she perfectly described the house and garden that matched where Joanna lived when she was four.
People often say the Pollock twins are “proof” of reincarnation, but some argue that their memories could have come from their four older brothers. John and Florence say they didn’t talk to the twins about their dead sisters until they were older, but it’s possible the twins heard about it from their brothers.
