That's what happened when a bunch of pensioners lost their money:
A gang of pensioners allegedly kidnapped and tortured their financial advisor after losing £2million savings in the credit crunch.
James Amburn was ambushed outside his house, hit over the head with a Zimmer frame and bundled into a car, it is claimed.
The OAPs then bound the 56-year-old with masking tape and threw him in a cellar for four days until he agreed to get their cash from a bank.
American-born Mr Amburn said the ambush took a while “as they ran out of breath”.
He added: “The fear of death was indescribable. They bound me with masking tape until I looked like a mummy.”
Mr Amburn was driven 300 miles from his home in Speyer, Germany, to one of the pensioner’s homes in Lake Chiemsee, Bavaria.
His ordeal ended when he faxed a Swiss bank to get the cash. He secretly scrawled a message to call police.
The five OAPs, aged 60 to 79, have been charged with kidnap.
