Pensioners Kidnap Financial Adviser

 

A verdict will be on March this year in a German court where four pensioners have appeared, charging them with kidnapping a financial adviser that made them lose millions in property transactions.

After taking him from his home in western Germany and driving him 450 km to southern Bavaria, they forced him to promise to refund 2.5 million euros by signing various papers, admitting he was responsible for making rotten US property investments.

Police freed the adviser by storming the house where the man was being held after he sent a hidden message to them. Investigations have been launched against him after complaints came from several people for breaching of trust.

Your english is getting incredibly good!

Since your first post ages ago to now, you have improved to the point that I would say you do a better job than many who speak english as their first language.

One minor correction: "Hided" should be "Hidden"
