3 men from Rhode Island were robbed at gunpoint after responding to a craigslist ad from Milton, Mass. for a TV. The address they were sent to was a vacant apartment. One of the victims went inside alone where he was held at gun point by two men. The suspects then went and got the other two victims out of the car. All the victims were robbed of their cash and belongings and one was even beaten. The two suspects are still at large.
Considering one of the victims went into the apartment by himself leads me to believe that he thought doing business on craigslist is a safe experience when obviously it isn’t. As I’ve said before craigslist is the online hive of scum and villainy and you’d be surprised how many people are unaware of this.
