According to Gizmodo, the gang used one of their girlfriend's as a honey trap to entice the bloke who is apparently a world leader in the game Gun Bound.
After he turned up in a shopping centre in San Paulo expecting a date with a real life girl, the player found the gang led by a bloke called Igor and he was kidnapped. Apparently the plan was to sell the password for $8,000. After five hours they could not break the will of the hostage who apparently would rather risk death than hand over his passwords.
In the end they let him go. The Brazilian police then caught the four suspects, aged 19 to 27.
