There have been a few news stories lately that have one thing in common…Craigslist! A Georgia mom used Craigslist to find her 9-year-old son a ride to Florida. The mom and unknown man discussed sharing the expenses via text message, but once the man learned the age of the young boy, he immediately called the cops. The officers arrested the mother at her apartment and charged her with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Slacker said he bought Lego’s for his child on Craigslist and had to go inside the stranger’s home, which was weird for him, considering the stranger locked the door behind them! He once put a bunch of old junk in the back of his truck and put an ad out saying it was ‘free while it lasts!’ Cars were screeching up in minutes! Which also shows how badly Craigslist can go, Slacker says you could so easily put an evil neighbor’s address on the website, and it’s all downhill from there.
Steve used Craigslist for the first time today, and thinks it could possibly be helpful. Steve’s one Craigslist tip is make sure you know what the acronyms stand for.
