A Fake And A Fraud.

A spanish bloke received a photo of his lovely wife with her wrists and ankles tied to a steel framed plastic chair with a text message on his mobile phone demanding one hundred thousand dollars ransom for her safe return and a warning not to involve the police in anyway otherwise his lovely wife would be terminated and her corpse buried in a shallow grave off the beaten track.

A few hours past by after he contacted the police when a police patrol car spotted the kidnap victums white BMW convertible with red leather bucket seats and trim being driven in the opposite direction by a sheila. Making a u-turn and giving chase the police patrol car followed her into the extremely expensive but popular shopping mall carpark in the tourist town of Gandia on the spanish mediterrean coast.

When the white BMW convertible finally came to standstill the police pounced only to discover the sheila sitting behind the steering wheel was none other than the kidnap victim herself and promptly arrested her for faking her own kidnapping and taken to the police station for questioning. At first the sheila told police she had been released by her kidnappers that morning. Under intense pressure the sheila confessed the kidnapping was A Fake And A Fraud conjured up by her because she wanted to know what her husband would be willing to sacrifice for her and their marriage after 30 years.

Another dumb crime that actually happen, all the people and places are real. Bad luck played a roll, because the wife got caught and confessed to faking her own kidnapping when she could have kept quiet and would have got away with it and no-one would have been the wiser. Instead she has to pay a servere penalty for her dumb crime all in the name of love or was there something more sinister at play here. Would you go to this extreme?.

This one makes me a bit sad. All she needed from the sound of it was to be told that she was important to her husband. Poor communication all round. His and hers both.

Ah, such innocence. She was going to do a runner with her matador and the hundred grand of course.

There must be layers and layers of meaning to this story, Windsmoke. It's fascinating.

Depending on my wife's mood at the time if anyone kidnapped her I might consider it a huge personal favor. Of course I fully expect they would quickly release her and give me money to take her back.

Of course I write this in jest...mostly.

And I'm sure at times she would say the same about me.

G' Day THE ELEPHANTS CHILD: That's the first thing i though of a communication breakdown :-).

G' Day ANDREW: I though there was something more sinister about it now i know and welcome to my humble blog and i hope to hear from you in the future :-)

G' Day ELISABETH: I could have added more layers to this story but then it could have got out of control :-).

G' Day BEACH BUM: I would hope that you wrote this in jest as you could be in big trouble with your wife otherwise :-).

G' Day CLOUDIA: Absolutely :-).

That certainly was a bit extreme of her.

I'm with Andrew!! I say quick thinking on her part once she got sprung ...

Have a great weekend!

And all the time I'm thinking he was told not to tell the police otherwise she would be murdered ... so he told the police.

I wouldn't do anything that might end with me being caught!

Hi Windsmoke,
Very strange and sad I feel. But how stupid of this women to be driving around, it beggars belief. Not very bright I don't think, and I totally agree with The Elephant's Child, definitely seems to be no communication in the marriage at all, to have to go to such extremes.

G' Day RIVER: Its a sign of desperation :-).

G' Day RED NOMAD OZ: She could've got away with it if she didn't confess under pressure :-).

G' Day JANE HEALY: He called her bluff and won :-).

G' Day DAVE KING: Amen to that :-).

G' Day MAGSX118: I agreed with THE ELEPHANTS CHILD in my reply. It wasn't a brightest of ideas to go driving around in full view of everybody :-).
