JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said 20-year-old Shannon Nicole Campbell faked her own disappearance.

According to JSO, Campbell faked her kidnapping so her mother would give her money.

Police said her family reported getting mysterious text messages from Campbell's phone. The messages said Campbell was being held by a person who she owed money for drugs. The messages demanded the family send a $2,000 money order for her release. 

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says the messages appeared to say Campbell was in danger saying, "I can't leave, save me," and "I can't go anywhere until I have something to offer."

Campbell was found safe early Monday morning. Police say she admitted to lying about being kidnapped and held against her will.

Campbell is charged with filing a false police report.

That man walking the dog is sexy, as for this 'women' she deserves no publicity. She's made a scare of the neighborhood. She's nothing more than a disgrace who embarrassed her family.

I agree, Dog! The He11 with community service. Any time this kind of krap is pulled, the culprit should absolutely pay back the money. Naturally, this should be done while incarcerated. PENAL FARMS.

I bet this POS will look fantastic in her prison uniform; hope the law throws the book at the lying pile of gutter trash. She should also be forced to pay back every dime spent on the investigation, with interest.

I'm glad she's okay, but these details are too sketchy to report. Why not just say she was found safe and leave it at that until you know the story?
