    "An Oregon man has lost nearly all his possessions after a bogus advert on Craigslist offered the contents of his house for free.
    Two posts appeared on the site on 22 March stating that Robert Salisbury, an independent contractor, was leaving the area at short notice and was giving away the contents of his house along with his horse...."

    You know what is even more sad? When he came to his house and told people that he never posted that advertisement they shoved the printout in his face and told him since it was on the Internet it must be true and they had the full right to steal his ****.

    I'm just glad they are looking into this and found out about the thieves - at least there is positive progress coming out of what could have been total **** for that guy :(

    Atleast now he can declare it on his insurance as a theft, he has a police report to prove it.
