Kidnapper Steals Banker's Wife And Refuses To Accept Ransom In Normal Euros

Thomas Bögerl’s wife, Maria Bögerl, has been kidnapped in Germany and a savvy kidnapper has demanded German-issued Euros.

According to BILD, Bögerl, Sparkasse bank’s CEO, got a call from an anonymous kidnapper about an hour after his wife was taken, around 11:30 AM on Wednesday morning (in the Heidenheim region of Baden-Württemberg in Germany).

The kidnapper said that they had Maria and that Thomas should deliver to them an unknown amount of “German-flagged” Euros, suspected to be the only Euros that are backed by the German government. Evil like a fox.

Thomas spoke to his wife on the phone, who said, “I have been threatened with death.”

The German-backed money was delivered to the A7 motorway at Heidenheim, as the kidnapper requested, but no one showed. They money was left there.

The fact that the kidnapper requested German-flagged euros is interesting and could be a key to his identity. He must be savvy enough to know that the euro is doomed and that Germany is pretty much the only country in good economic standing.
