The FBI is sending a warning to parents whose children are traveling over spring break to be aware of virtual kidnappings.

Virtual kidnappings cases are very high during this time of the year.

It starts with an anonymous phone call or text with someone on the other line pretending to have kidnaped a loved one.

They will tra anything to trick you into sending them money.

Police say if this happens to you, call 911.
