Kidnapping can be a very lucrative business. Howtomakeadollar does not support kidnapping people. Well, actually thinking back on it... we have written a post on how to make money kidnapping a terrorist... so I take back my last statement. Howtomakeadollar does support the kidnapping of people... at least terrorists. The problem with most kidnappers is they expect too much in return for their business. Seriously... do you really need $37,000,000 ransom? No.
Howtomakeadollar's step by step kidnapping business plan:
1. Kidnap something (objects are much easier to kidnap then people). We recommend the object meets the following criteria: be of some value, absence of this item will be an inconvenience to the person it is taken from, easy to kidnap. Examples of good items to kidnap: car keys, reading glasses, shoes, cell phones, tennis rackets, metal detectors.
2. Inform the person their item has been kidnapped
3. Ask Demand ransom. This is the crucial step... do you ask for $37,000,000. Ask for a reasonable number... say $1. Most people will give you the dollar because they are really annoyed with you and want their item back... and well it is simply easier for them to give you $1 then to call the FBI to come investigate the kidnapping of their cell phone.
4. Collect money
