Wednesday, March 26, 2008 Internet Considered Dangerous Internet Considered Dangerous:

A pair of hoax ads on Craigslist cost an Oregon man much of what he owned.

The ads popped up Saturday afternoon, saying the owner of a Jacksonville home was forced to leave the area suddenly and his belongings, including a horse, were free for the taking, said Jackson County sheriff’s Detective Sgt. Colin Fagan.

But Robert Salisbury had no plans to leave. The independent contractor was at Emigrant Lake when he got a call from a woman who had stopped by his house to claim his horse."

Not so much internet crime as vast stupidity premised on the idea that the Internet is somehow 'different'.
