The Most Creative Way Ever To Fund A Shopping Spree

Money is tight this year and I have been left with the task of dreaming up ways to fund my post-Christmas shopping spree. The sales are calling my name! Luckily, I’ve got an idea. What if I faked my own kidnapping and tried to extort $25,000 from my husband for ransom? Oh wait, I don’t have a husband and some other lady already thought of it first? Bummer.A Spanish woman was arrested yesterday while hightailing it to the retail stores with a bag full of her husband’s extorted cash. At first, she tried to keep up the ruse, claiming that she had been released by her captors that morning, but soon confessed she had staged the kidnapping to test her husband’s affections. He loved her so much that he turned over all the incriminating text messages to authorities, including the fake pictures of her bound hands and feet. I guess I’ll have to think of something more innovative. [Daily Mail]
