Man who faked his own kidnap and torture to defraud his victims of £10,000 caught by poor spelling



23-year-old Christopher Sellman who created an elaborate series of lies and also sent disturbing videos to obtain around £10,000 from two people, has been arrested and arraigned in court.



Sellman carried out the act with his ex-partner, 28-year-old Stephanie Gibb. He sent pictures of a razor blade to his throat, a crossbow to his temple, and videos of him being forced under water.



His friends were asked in series of chilling messages to pay a ransom to the “kidnapper” in exchange for his safety in February of this year. Canterbury Crown Court heard that after his friends paid the money, they received more messages demanding money to ensure that he stayed safe.



Sellman's concerned friends who received a terrifying picture of him with a gun in his mouth, paid another £1,000 as the “kidnapper” demanded for more cash.
