"Don't call cops or set off any alarms be calm we are watching you we have this ladys child if she don't do what we say she will die and her daughter and everyone in this bank 80,000 dollars unmarked, untraceable bills if she is not out here in 5 min she will die along with her daughter and everyone in this bank we are watching you now so hurry now if you want to live."
