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.
