A man who responded to an ad on 58.com for a job as a nightclub bouncer had his trip turn into a nightmare. The posting was a ruse that ended in kidnapping, extortion, and desanguination when he refused to participate in an illegal gambling operation.
Authorities in the Cambodian province of Preah Sihanouk confirmed that a Chinese national claimed to have been drugged and sent from Vietnam to Cambodia. There, his captors removed 1.5 pints of blood each day. The blood was allegedly sold by his kidnappers for profit.
It all started when the man saw an ad on 58.com, the Chinese equivalent of Craigslist. The ad mentioned lucrative jobs in China’s Guangxi Province near the Vietnamese border. However, the ad was posted by a criminal gang.
