A Spanish woman and five accomplices that include her 15 year old son were arrested earlier this week after it was discovered that the woman had staged her son being kidnapped four times in order to extract ransom from the boy’s father whom she is separated from. Each time the plan was started; the boy would call his father and beg him to pay the ransom so that he could go free. The first three times the plan worked without a hitch and the father never suspected that the boy’s mother was involved but when it happened a fourth time, the father became suspicious and hired a private investigator who revealed the plan to him. Over the course of time that these fake kidnappings were happening, the woman was able to get $1.26 million in ‘ransom’.
