PIX kidnapping

“PIX kidnapping” is a relatively new form of kidnapping for ransom that has emerged in Brazil since the introduction of the PIX instant payment system in November 2020. PIX is a digital payment platform that enables users to transfer money instantly between bank accounts using their mobile phones, without the need for a physical card or cash.

Criminals have now begun to use the PIX system to extort money from their victims, using tactics similar to traditional kidnapping for ransom. The kidnappers will abduct an individual, often someone from a wealthy family or business owner, and demand a ransom payment through the PIX system. The victim’s family or associates are then coerced into making the payment in exchange for the victim’s release.

The PIX system’s speed and convenience have made it a preferred method of payment for criminals carrying out these types of kidnappings. In addition, the anonymity of the system makes it difficult for law enforcement agencies to track and apprehend the kidnappers.

Individuals and businesses in Brazil should take proactive measures to protect themselves from PIX kidnapping, including being vigilant and cautious when making transactions through the PIX system, avoiding making large payments to unknown individuals, and seeking advice from financial institutions or security experts when needed.

The emergence of PIX kidnapping highlights the ongoing challenges that Brazil faces in combating kidnapping for ransom.
