Ransom

Definition ransom according to Oxford English Dictionary is sum of money demanded or paid of someone for the release who is held  captive. If someone say: "you're holding me to ransom" it means you force him to do something, usually by threatening damaging action.

And its a  new word to me that I got from my hubby text the other day.

Seeing its definition of ransom, it sounds a bit negative. However, ransom can become a way to get a good deal in a circumstances.... especially if you think you're always in the unprofitable party.

First thing if you want ransom someone you must first ensure you have something significant that the person has. When you really sure that the person would no way to go then the negotiation could happen as you wanted.

It's tricky, bold and a bit unkind. But believe it or not many people do it naturally.
