Craigslist can be harmful to your health

snipped:

A 40-year-old Cromwell man is dead after being shot in the head while trying to sell a Samsung Tablet in Hartford on Wednesday night, according to police and the victim's family.

DeJesus' father, Felix DeJesus Jr., said his son was trying to sell an electronic tablet on Craigslist and had arranged to meet with someone who expressed interest in buying.

Well, that could happen even with an ad in a local newspaper.

There are currently two men on trial in our area, known as the "Craigs List killers". They ran ads for "Farm Help", then used the "Help" as "wild game" (think Deliverance) they would tuen the men out on their property then hunt them down. eek

Seriously. I used to think shows like Criminal Minds were extreme, but that is the second or third story I've heard recently that's right out of one of the show's episodes!

It astounds me how depraved some of our fellow human beings can be.

Close. "Thug" was more his title than his name. He was a member of the Thugee Cult. Members were referrd to as, you guessed it, "thugs". smile

These types of robberies happen pretty frequently here in the SF Bay Area with the occasional shooting or harming of the victim. I've sold a car and motorcycle on Craigslist and both instances brought the attention of very shifty characters. I've decided that I won't use Craigslist for purchases or sales anymore as a result.
