The casino sent the finger to his mother in Vietnam to get her to pay back the debt quickly.
The finger was delivered to her home by a young man who also gave her four letters from her son and urged her to pay off the debt immediately.
The victim’s family eventually paid off the gambling debt and he was freed. He said there were about 20 other individuals who were captured with him and they also had fingers or ears cut off. Additionally, the casino had threatened to kill them and sell their organs if their debts were not paid.
Local police are currently investigating the case.
