Man fakes his own kidnapping to avoid paying $50,000 Super Bowl bet

A man in New York faked his own abduction and robbery because he was short of cash owed in a Super Bowl pool. 60-year-old Robert Brandel was found tied up in his pickup truck Monday in a parking lot in Newfane. Brandel falsely claimed two men involved in his Super Bowl squares robbed him of $16,000 and tied him up in his pickup. He has been charged with fraud and falsely reporting an incident.

His abductors also called him a "chode" and said "This is Maga country".

What kind of dumb shit loses 50k on a Super Bowl bet? At least he didn't try to start a race war, and prompt more hate against #MAGA, like little Jussie did. Same incredible level of greed tho

While I am heartbroken to hear that Robert allegedly did this, kidnappings are REAL and ON THE RISE. Anyway, I'm waiting for all the facts to come out.
