Craigslist Ad Costs Man Huge Property Loss
An Oregon man said hoax ads on the Web site Craigslist.org cost him nearly everything he owned.
Robert Salisbury, who lives in the southern Oregon town of Jacksonville, said someone posted an ad on the Web site that offered up all of Salisbury’s belongings for free. He wasn’t home when people showed up to his house and loaded items into their cars.
The trespassers, armed with printouts of the ad, tried to brush him off. "They honestly thought that because it appeared on the Internet it was true," Salisbury said. "It boggles the mind."
