Kissimmee residents warned about kidnapping scheme


KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Kissimmee police have a warning about a kidnapping scheme that is targeting Hispanic residents.

Investigators said they've received six reports this month about the scheme, where a Spanish-speaking caller demands a ransom for a family member who was supposedly in an accident and was kidnapped.       

However, authorities said the story is untrue.
