Washington home emptied after craigslist hoax

Wash. home emptied after craigslist hoax

Everything including the kitchen sink was stripped from a rental home after an Internet classified ad invited people to take whatever they wanted for free.

But the landlord says the ad, posted last weekend on the craigslist Web site, was fake.

"In the ad, it said come and take what you want. Everything is free," Laurie Raye told Seattle's KING-TV.

Raye had cleaned out the rental after evicting a tenant. After the ad appeared, the property was stripped of the sink, light fixtures and the hot water heater. Even the front door and a vinyl window were pilfered, Raye said.

Neighbors said they saw strangers hauling items away, apparently looking for salvage material.

Raye said craigslist told her it would need a subpoena or search warrant to release information about who posted the ad.

Craigslist officials did not immediately respond Thursday to a request for comment.

Police said they've seen craigslist problems before. "We've had prostitution things happen, rental scams, fraudulent activity. In this case, it appeared the items were going to be given away, but they were not," police Detective Gretchen Ellis said.
