HOSTAGE SCAM: Beware of this scam which pretends to have a family member held hostage.
A MAN and a 17-year-old girl were arrested in Gandia after allegedly holding a man hostage for two hours after he had reportedly met the girl for sex.
The man is said to have contacted the girl and arranged to meet her for sexual relations after agreeing to pay her €50. When the man went to the teenager’s flat, she told him her husband was there and he was to pay the money to him.
The man was then threatened with “potentially dangerous dogs”, told he would be reported to police as the girl was “underage”, stripped and held for two hours. The complainant was then apparently made to go with the pair to an ATM where he withdrew further money for the couple before he was eventually released.
The girl is reportedly an absconder from a Juvenile home, and has been returned.
