It was the first of April when I received a letter from my good friend Richard. He never sent me one so I was surprised. I opened it and what came next left me speechless

kevin, please Help me out! A friend invited me to a place called "Party Place" and they said that the food was "extra spicY" and you know me, i like thAt kind of PaRty food. anyway, where was I again? oh yeah, i went to that place but the reaL place was horrible and almost no one came. one of my Friends texted me that they had Other things to dO. so i decided to Leave that place and juSt go home. when i arriveD home, A note was taped on mY door saying that my family has been kidnapped. what was odd was that he left a clue

Below the letter was the clue that the mysterious kidnapper left

If you take all the capital letters in the letters it says "HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY"

I suppose...

Richard is pranking you?

(Tried to decrypt using a Vigenere cipher, still meaningless...)

  • $\begingroup$ The clue was just nonsense actually and the answer lies in the letter $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Aug 14 '18 at 2:36

It's obvious your good friend Richard and family teamed up together to play an April Fool's Joke! But where were they hiding to watch you? Perhaps his house watching you from a hidden or security camera laughing at you? LOL! Sorry I couldn't help myself. Then I noticed the scrambled letters. Focusing on unscrambling the letters I come up with nothing! Looks like a false lead to me and a time waster in finding the solution but this tactic is what makes it even funnier! My answer is still do "Nothing!" but am I correct?
