Emmerdale viewers are certain that Paul Ashdale (Reece Dinsdale) staged his own kidnapping during Monday night's episode.
Soap fans watched as he was bundled into the back of a van, after telling dodgy Connor that he didn't have the money he owed.
But viewers reckon it is all a part of a scam to rinse Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steele) after Paul told Connor that she had the cash that he needed.
Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) saw the whole incident unfold, and soon got a call from someone trying to disguise their voice, asking for ransom money.
However, if viewers are right, Mandy might not have anything to worry about – as they think Paul was in on it from the start.
One said on Twitter: "It's a set up."
Another tweeted: "Faked his own abduction."
A third wrote: "Oh FFS how set up was that?"
Someone else simply typed: "Scam."
While a fifth said: "Paul organised this 'kidnap' to get ransom money from Liv."
Last week, Emmerdale spoilers revealed that Mandy would be left horrified as she saw Paul get kidnapped.

Earlier on in Monday's episode, Connor turned up at the scrapyard and demanded the money that Paul owed him, but the gambling addict told him he couldn't pay yet.
When Mandy got the call threatening Paul's life, she was told to cough up £4,000 or she'd never see him again.
Spoilers revealed that she and Vinny (Bradley Johnson) scramble to try and raise enough money, but they only manage to get £1,000 together.

Mandy and Vinny are left begging for more time from Connor, but he and his henchmen aren't keen on backing down.
He orders Mandy to bring the cash to a lay-by the next day, and she comes up with a plan of her own.
She turns up with a bag full of cash, leaving Vinny, Liv and Lydia (Karen Blick) confused – especially when she refuses to reveal how she got the money.
Mandy heads off to the lay-by, with a cricket bat too, but will she get Paul back?
And will it be revealed that Mandy took the cash from Liv, with Paul setting up his kidnapping in order to get it?
Meanwhile, Liv told Vinny that she wanted him to sleep in her bed with them, as they take their relationship to the next step.
