Ad in yesterday's Pets section of the local Craigslist:
"As fate would have it my van broke down Saturday evening. As my husband was evaluating the damage my 3 year old son found 3 little kittens that someone had so cruely abandoned (box and all) in the woods away from any shelter or food. We couldnt leave them there regardless of whether or not we were walking or not. So now I have 3 little kittens (not sure of their genders) that need GOOD loving homes. These kittens were given a second chance and we are looking for their perfect "forever" families."
The ad goes on, but you get the idea. Unfortunately, two of the several pictures that were included in the ad were clearly date-stamped 05/11/12, two weeks BEFORE these poor little waifs were supposedly found in the woods. Oooops!
You know, I can appreciate a good con as much as the next person. But the blatant stupidity of the scammers on Craigslist is just ... disheartening, somehow. Buck up your game, liars! Yeesh.
