Re: Stop paying the ransom

I imagine that's easy to say until you are one of those who is hit and you have a choice between paying a modest sum or losing your entire business.

Most people in the west would argue no random payments when discussing ISIS kidnappings, but if it was your wife or your son they held you may be willing to pay whatever they ask and screw the consequences for whoever they might kidnap in the future.
