Kidnap scams making a comeback

Posted by jtsmyth8 on December 5, 2007

Anyone fall for this? How are they finding their victims? Are they just calling random numbers? Something’s not right. They are getting the numbers of old people and calling them. Somewhere someone has a telemarketing phone list with seniors targeted. I think I would get a good laugh out of it if some prankster called me up and tried to get money from me. I’d agree to meet him somewhere and kick the shit out of him.

“The callers threatened members of the public that their next-of-kin would be harmed unless money was transferred to them.

However, all the allegations were found to be untrue and no one had been kidnapped.” (story)
