It seems like people these days would do anything to get away from those they don’t want to deal with anymore. 

But to make it more ridiculous, some would even fake their own death just to get away from someone. 

Recently a woman in China, known only as Yu, was arrested after faking her own kidnapping and death in an attempt to break up with her boyfriend. 

Surprisingly, the reason for her action was because she found out that her boyfriend named Lin was too poor. 

The 37-year-old woman said she only knew about her boyfriend’s financial situation when she visited him at his hometown in Yichang City for Chinese New Year. 

It seems like they have been together for a while but she was not aware of his financial situation. 

However after the visit, Yu wanted to break up with Lin but was worried that he might refuse.

After they returned from Lin’s hometown, Yu disappeared from her dormitory at the Huangpi Jiahai Industrial Park.

She later called her boyfriend saying she had been kidnapped by her ex-husband and that he was about to throw her into a lake. 

“Come and save me, my ex-husband has kidnapped me. Come quickly! I think I’m on the highway already,” she said just before ending the call. 

Right after the call, Yu sent several texts to Lin, pretending to be her ex-husband and threatening to murder her if he informed the police about the kidnapping. 

Fearing for Yu’s safety, Lin decided to report it to the police as he could not negotiate with her ‘ex-husband’. 

After the police were informed, they checked several CCTV footages and managed to locate the woman at a motel in Tenglong district.

When the team of 20 police officers arrived, they were shocked to see Yu unharmed and lying on the bed watching TV. 

Yu then came clean about her plan to break up with her boyfriend. 

She was hoping for Lin to eventually give up on her and that would be the end of it. 

Yu was detained by the police for a total of 10 days for disrupting social order.

Well, YC team would advise if any of you guys want to break up with your partner, just be honest. 

Don’t complicate things like this.
