I know everyone is waiting for my s’pore trip post. But, there’s something that I want to blog about before that. It’s a kidnap phone scam my family received this afternoon.
I was out, jogging with the boyfriend this morning and went for lunch after that. Half way through my lunch, my brother called and asked where I am in a desperate tone. Having my lunch, i replied. My mom then took over the phone call, and told me that they have received a kidnap phone scam, saying that I was kidnapped.
my mom said when she picked up the house phone, it began with “MY” voice in tears saying:” mom, please save me now! those people are beating me up…..”
Mom got really worried, then asked where am “I” and who are those people. “I” cried desperately and replied everything with I don’t know.
Mom got panicked as she thought the voice sounded very much like me, she hang up the call in a way as if the line got chopped off. & quickly she asked my brother and sister to call me and see whether they could reach me. Later on, realized it was just a phone scam.
the “ME” called again and asked for help, which immediately replaced by the voice of a man who claimed that he is the kidnapper. He scolded my mom for hanging his call, and asked whether my mom still wants “ME” to be alive.
My mom already knew it’s a scam, and she sort of the told the supposed kidnapper to just take me away.
Guess the so-called-kidnapper soon know that his plan failed, without wasting excess phone credit, he hang up the phone.
Though I am safe, but getting such phone calls sent chills up the spine of my mom.
& somehow, worsen her health situation.
what kind of bastardly society is this? I wish those poeple could just go to hell for doing this to my mom.
hell, this is a feeling that no one deserve to go through.
The plan failed this time, i wonder who is the next victim as I bet they will be starting to search for another number from the telephone directory.
Let’s just pray.
Dear Lord, please bless that my mom will be feeling better by now and everything will be just fine. Also, there will not be any next victim as those nasty human creatures will get their punishment soon enough. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
