OR - Man Charged With Trying To Sell Baby On Craigslist - Salem, OR
There is a similar article on the news, but out of Salt Lake City. I dont know if they found out if the SLC one was a hoax, but I came accross this one also. This one if different and horrible- Im glad they caught this idiot.
SALEM, Ore. -- Police arrested a Dallas man Wednesday afternoon on a charge of placing an advertisement on Craigslist offering an infant for sale, although he never had an infant in his care.
Patrick Lee Ryan, 33, was charged with buying or selling a child, disorderly conduct in the first degree and computer crime stemming from an advertisement that said the author needed more “tweak,” or methamphetamine, and offered a baby for sale.
The advertisement said the child’s mother wasn’t coming back and offered to sell the baby for $1,000. Attached to the ad was a picture of an infant covered in chocolate.
The photo of the infant was obtained by the suspect off the Internet, and he does not have any infant children of his own.

I bet the buying/selling won't stick if the guy had no child to sell.
Craig's List was originally a well-intended idea, but idiots have changed it. Now, when you post, you have to wade through sex offerings, be concerned if the person answering your ad is a criminal, and insist on cash.

Suzi- I couldn't find anything about babies or children for sale at that link, but that story about the woman pictured jsut happens to have taken place in the backyard of Chico, CA. If yo arent familiar with it, I will re-cap and post some links for you- What a crazy, messed up affair that she had with a married man!!
Internet love~ I'm sacred to death of it, but some people really find the "person" of their dreams on line?? I don't get how people forget about the old fashioned way of meeting someone face-to face and getting that first glance.....and Im still young!!
