THE SMS sent to the mum said her daughter had been kidnapped.
The kidnappers wanted R5 000 ransom money . . . but the woman had another shock coming.
THREE TERRIFYING DAYS LATER, SHE FOUND OUT THAT HER DAUGHTER HAD KIDNAPPED HERSELF!
It appears the 18-year-old girl wanted to go on a shopping spree to buy new clothes and shoes.
But her mother from KwaThema in Ekurhuleni, herself only 37 years old, had no money to spare, and certainly nothing to give to the child to splash out on luxury items.
That’s when the girl came up with a stupid plan that has landed her behind bars, facing the serious charge of extortion.
The girl sent the first message on Friday afternoon, making it look like it was a kidnapper sending a message from the girl’s phone.
Its terrifying message read: “I have your daughter and if you still need her, send R5 000 by the end of the week or we will kill her and you will never find her body.”
The desperate mum tried to call the number but there was no response.
