Sometime in October 2008, quite a few European print media businesses (like Der Spigel etc.) reported that a blackmail plot existed against Susanne Klatten. After these reports were published, police swung into action and arrested two men who were accused of indulging in this practice.
What happened was that Klatten was blackmailed in the previous year by a swiss italian guy named Helg Sgarbi who threatened Klatten by saying that he would release the info in public if she refused to pay him millions of Euros.
After having already paid quite a sum, Klatten decided she had had enough and hence contacted the German police to report this threat.
The media reports apparently have hinted that Mr. Sgarbi met with Klatten Hotel Lanserhof, a spa near Innsbruck, Austria, and from then on, couple of other places in rich hotels in Europe including Munich.
Its a classic case of a moocher trying to extract as much as he could from tha rich lady. Klatten should not have first of all gotten in this mess. Or if she wanted, she could have chosen a better person.
