[...] and my house (that I own) cost me 1/10th of similar housing in the GTA.
That's not fair when you compare the cost of a real house with a house from a video game.

You say like that was a bad idea.
You need a power source
Man, it's right in the summary... I know people here aren't supposed to read the articles, but stop right after the headline is too much!
People get kidnapped off the streets for a paltry few hundred dollars' ransom.
This is past. Now they just call random phone numbers and say something like "I got your daughter here with me, if you want to see her well again transfer 2000 bucks to this account". All this using smuggled cell phones, in the comfort of the penitentiary they are in!
My father once got one of those calls and since he didn't know where my sister was, he was scared. He KNEW that 99.9% of those ransom calls are fake, but when that's about your kid and you are not 100% they are ok, you fall prone to this fear. Luckly he was able to tell his wife to call my sister and check she was ok, before hanging up. Another friend's mother didn't have the same luck and lost about 2000 US dollars for one of those calls.
