Unfold Close  KIDNAP SCAM

You might get a call from someone claiming that a loved one of yours has been kidnapped. During such kidnap scam calls, you might hear someone screaming or crying in the background for effect.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR

  • If you know that your loved one is in an very unlikely position to have been kidnapped, this is likely to be a scam
  • Scammers might claim to know your loved ones' names, but they may refuse to give descriptive details

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

  • Remain calm and ask the caller to identify the kidnapped person
  • Do not transfer money to the caller
  • Contact your loved one immediately to confirm their safety and whereabouts; this can be done while still on the phone with the 'kidnapper'
  • Call the Police at '999' immediately to report the case
