Most of the time, they complain to their parents. However, someone has gone to incredible heights just to get money from his parents – by faking his own kidnapping.

A man from Cartagena, south eastern Spain, has been reported to have faked his own kidnapping to get money from his parents. The unnamed Spaniard, who was said to be in his 20s, was reported missing on August 25th. His “kidnappers” contacted the man’s family and informed them that they have their son.

As reported by La Informacion, a Spanish newspaper, that aside from threatening the family, the “kidnappers” knew remarkably a lot about the family’s personal wealth, assets, and properties.
