“Bought a Keurig on Craiglist. We tried it for two times, began coffee that is noticing in my glass. Ignored it. Saw a cockroach during my kitchen, and found out it had been from the Keurig. Took a flashlight towards the inside, also it had been infested with a nest of cockroaches. It absolutely wasn’t coffee grounds within my glass. I possibly couldn’t contact the individual I’d gotten it from because We just had their Craiglist email with no actual contact information. I wound up tossing it in a trash bag doused with bug killer, sealed it shut, and threw it into the dumpster.”
“we got GTA V when it comes to PS3, then again got a PS4 about a couple of weeks later on since I have got amazed by a supplementary paycheck that is large had cash to blow.
and so i made a decision to sell my PS3 copy for $40. Right I legit got a text not even ten minutes later from a guy that wanted to meet in half an hour to pick it up as I put the listing up. I becamen’t busy, therefore I chose to take action. The man had been about 10 years more than me personally, extremely thin (towards the point of ribs virtually showing through their top), and had a hi5 tick. Anyhow, we result in the deal and genuinely believe that’s the final end from it. Nope. Back at my drive house, he texted me personally wanting me personally to come up to their spot and play it with him. We politely decrease. Then he continues on to text me personally a novel about their life tale and their time serving in Afghanistan and his PTSD and despair. We felt bad I meet on Craigslist for him but still didn’t want to go hang out with a stranger. Then begins asking me personally once I’d be free to spend time and attempts to make plans. We explain politely that i am not necessarily trying to it’s the perfect time through Craigslist or any such thing. He attempts calling me personally. We turn fully off my phone and fall asleep. I transform it straight right back on each day and I also’ve got twenty-something missed calls and over sixty texting as they went along from him, getting increasingly more angry, violent, and threatening. We installed an application to block their quantity and therefore solved it, but also for a good week or two I became scared of inadvertently operating into him once again.”

The gardener robbed him whenever my pal decided to go to a various state for a wedding and kidnapped my buddy’s roomie.

The roomie had been stupid and aided him pack it and drive the gardener, within my buddy’s car, into the mother’s spot. The roommate ended up being too stupid to ensure the story with my buddy who had been during the wedding, but my buddy ended up being excellent so that it did not raise any suspicions. The gardener ended up being some of those smooth-talking crooks, and so the roomie thought their sob tale. It was late, so they let the roommate sleep the night when they got to the mom’s place. If the roomie woke up, the gardener ended up being gone. Their two brothers forcefully kept him inside your home all time to ensure that he could not phone the cops.
