How much are you worth to your mom? Hopefully more than this. A 19-year-old named Emmanuel in South Carolina faked his own kidnapping to get money out of his mom. And the ransom he asked for? The princely sum of $130. He had a friend call his mom to tell her to put 130 bucks in a mailbox at a specific address, or her son would die. The plan fell through because the address they gave her was Emmanuel’s DAD’S house, so obviously she recognized it. He might have considered it a dumb prank but it technically qualifies as blackmail, so he’s now facing up to 10 years in prison. I mean, shouldn’t a 19 year old know better by now? This kid has a bright future.
