German pensioners 'kidnap and torture their investment adviser'


www.timesonline.co.uk

A group of well-to-do pensioners who lost their savings in the credit crunch staged an arthritic revenge attack and held their terrified financial adviser to ransom, prosecutors said yesterday.

The alleged kidnapping is the latest example of what is being dubbed “silver crime” — the violent backlash of pensioners who feel cheated by the world.

“As I was letting myself into my front door I was assaulted from behind and hit hard,” the financial adviser James Amburn, a 56-year-old German-American, said. “Then they bound me with masking tape until I looked like a mummy. I thought I was a dead man.”

He was freed by 40 heavily armed policemen from the counter-terrorist unit last Saturday. The frightened consultant was in his underwear, his body lacerated by wounds allegedly inflicted by angry pensioners.

What a novel idea. Where's Bernie Madoff?

It would certainly make Wall street stop and think if this caught on before they started selling trash investments again.

Ya gotta watch out for those little old ladies though they can be vicious.

More seriously ya gotta ask what jury is going to convict them when the investment adviser's and houses crimes are far more serious and have far greater impact.
