Jealous Husband Fakes Own Kidnap To Extort $400 From His Rich Wife


A married man who was desperate for a few dollars, has been nabbed after he decided to fake his own kidnap to extort money from his wife, police in Mexico said. World Odd News report:

Mexico City Police said that they have arrested 36-year-old Eliot Garrido Guido, after being accused of uploading photos on Facebook that showed him tied up and injured.

Guido wrote a message to his wife demanding $460 in exchange for his freedom. According to the police investigation, Guido was jealous of his wife, Constanza, 34, because she was earning more money than him working as a banker.

The husband enlisted the help of 42-year-old Martinez Reyes, who tied him to a chain in an abandoned house and smeared him with fake blood. The two then uploaded images on Facebook, saying that the husband is being held captive somewhere in Playa del Carmen. Constanza was also told that her husband was being tortured and that he will be killed if she does not pay the $460.
