A young Syrian man faked his kidnapping, in an effort to scam his father by demanding a ransom of 30 million Syrian pounds ($57,395) to secure his release.
According to a statement by the Syrian Ministry of Interior, “A citizen reported to the Criminal Security Branch in Lattakia that his son, Mahmoud, born in 2000, had been kidnapped by unknown people, and messages were received from an unknown number claiming to be the kidnappers asking for a ransom of thirty million Syrian pounds in exchange for his release.”
The statement said that authorities set up an ambush for the supposed kidnappers in coordination with the son’s family, revealing that “the Criminal Security Branch in Lattakia was able to lure the kidnapper and arrest him, and it turned out that the son was present to receive the ransom amount and staged everything.”
The son then “confessed that he had fabricated the fictitious kidnapping incident with the intention of obtaining the ransom amount.” According to the statement by the Interior Ministry, the reason for the faked abduction “is due to family disputes with his father”.
