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?.
