OGDEN, Utah -- (KSTU) -- An Ogden mother and father have a serious warning for parents everywhere: beware of a scam called, "virtual kidnapping."
Last Wednesday, father Jeff Weber was at work driving his work vehicle, a hazmat truck when his cell phone rang from an unknown number. He did not answer. But then it rang again, the same unknown number. He answered it.
“I heard a young girl crying saying 'daddy, daddy I'm scared,' then the kid voice went away and a man came on and told me he kidnapped my daughter and if I ever wanted to see her again I would not tell anybody or hang up,” explained Weber. “The guy sounded serious.”
