“Worst day of my life yesterday, I’m off [sic] for a few days and I’ll tell you what happened. Be careful with the new kidnapping wave that’s out there, they kidnap you and force you to make Pix. It happened to me yesterday. I lost more than 100k, but the important thing is life, thank God. I will do the BO [boletins de ocorrência] and everything else. I need some time to [sic] my psychology”, reveals youtuber, which has 4.82 million followers on Google’s video platform.

He specializes in the game Free Fire (Garena’s famous battle royale) and is part of the LOUD team of influencers – a Brazilian eSports and content production company.
According to Crusher Fooxi, his concern is not the lost money, because that “we get it back”. “But what about the psychological and security of walking around? The way is to walk safely armed. That’s what I’m going to do. probably will be [sic] seeing this because he knew everything about me. We see too much goodness in people and we forget the badness. That will change,” says the digital influencer in the series of shared tweets earlier this afternoon.
It seems that this type of crime is really becoming more common. So much so that the Public Security Committee of the Chamber of Deputies held a debate yesterday (8/18) to talk about kidnappings carried out by organized crime and that require money transfer through Pix.
“Nowadays, instead of being taken to ATMs, victims spend hours in captivity where they are forced to carry out various financial transactions through their cellphone banking applications, such as Pix transfers, purchases and even loans”, comments the Deputy Delegate Antônio Furtado (PSL-RJ), responsible for the meeting, cited by Agência Câmara de Notícias.
According to the congressman, although there are no official data showing an increase in the number of lightning kidnappings, “there are more reports of cases of this nature, which were frequent in the 1990s.”
