If you hadn’t heard, today Craigslist was in the news and it wasn’t good. Apparently someone had made a listing on Craigslist stating that everything at a Jacksonville, Oregon home was free for the taking. This same “clever duo” then participated in the “free offering” in order to steal a couple horse trailers.
What they didn’t know was that police could easily track IP addresses that Craigslist provided. That little lack of knowledge got these two thieves caught and booked.
Moral of the story – there’s no such thing as a “get-rich-quick” online scheme!
