The invisible threat




The invisible threat

Three o’clock in the morning. Husband’s cell phone rings for the fifth time. Husband sleeps like a log. I’m going to hate to see anyone of conscience enough to call for so long and intrusive. I looked at the screen, it says “mama”. I’ve got the same heart goes to the heel, I’m racing to an arrow to her husband start his push apart. He picks up the phone, and I hear in the silence of the night worrying anxious voice of his mother, who asks if we have to order.

Frankly, from the calls of the night never expect anything good. And when they call home, so does your hair stand on end just at the thought that something could happen.

It turned out her husband’s mother received a call on a home phone and a voice to her son on his face, began to say that he was taken to the police. An urgent need to give money to the guardians of order in the amount of 150 thousand rubles to let him go. And the most important thing is not to tell his wife, that is, I, and my name was called. Also, it was impossible to call anyone, especially the police and friends, do not ask anybody in debt.

You can imagine, as a mother, and let them have an adult son asleep react to what is happening. The woman she was aged, began to panic and collect the money. She was told that he would come the taxi driver to give him money, and everything will be fine. Unsuccessfully trying to get through to us, she could simultaneously collect half the amount and get to the entrance.

At the time of the transfer of money she had just phoned us up and realized that everything is in order, we are at home and asleep. Also fortunate that the taxi driver was not missed. When the woman made him the money and asked, “Where is my son?” Taxi driver kept his head and decided to look into the situation. It turned out he had been called to the address, was told to pick up something. Calling from a mobile phone every couple of minutes, checking whether it is in a way, and how soon would be there …

Probably not worth talking about, even at midnight we could not calm down, were on edge, even though the situation has stabilized. In my head there was a set of questions. But if you have to think how much fell into place. As it turned out, it is easy to find via the telephone database, how many people in the apartment, the names of residents. Through social networks easily trace who he meets and all the like.

And how to protect themselves from all this mayhem? Although the taxi driver and told us the phone numbers from which you call him, it does not help. They were blocked. And that’s it. The ends of the water.

I understand that in such situations to pull myself together and start to think clearly very difficult, but necessary. First you need to just make sure that the person calling your cousin. The voice is difficult to do so as they are usually calm and clear, but the question to which the answer can only know your relative, you can. For example, what was the mother’s maiden name, date of birth, ask grandma / grandpa, your place work. In general, any issue that could mislead the attackers and for some time to disarm them.

It is especially important not to run immediately to collect the money, and try all possible numbers to call her son / daughter / husband.

If you are told that supposedly an accident involving your family, you need to find out exactly where it happened, what kind of car was a man, and as much as possible details of the incident. Then call the duty of the traffic police or the police department, to find out if it was true there was a failure in the place of which you said.

Attackers usually call at night when the phone call he brings something more sinister. They are very delicate and true hit on our nerves, without giving time to recover and understand what’s what. So beware, do not let yourself to circle around your finger!
