Guy Beats Craigslist Scammer At Their Own Game

Man, these incompetent scammers just keep on coming right out of the woodwork. In this case, it sounds like the scammer was in way over their head from the start. On top of that, they'd clearly overplayed their scam to such a point that it was just going to be too easy to rightfully shut them down. Hence, the payment request and what we'd imagine was a very surprised and displeased scammer.

They will go on to try to sell dumb junk online. Does any of this unusual stuff ever sell? Who knows. At least someone tried.

Unusual Stuff People Tried to Sell Online

Some of these are just jokes, and some of these we really wish were jokes. You'd need the world's largest dumpster to fit all of the weird stuff people try to sell online. Honestly some of this stuff looks like it would make your house smell like wherever it came from. If it's a failed art project, a "rare" item or just something someone needs to get rid of, you can bet someone will try to sell it online.

After using Craigslist to hunt down an old Macintosh, redditor bobwowbob stumbled upon a NSFW surprise hidden in a fake “America Online” folder. As it turns out bobwowbob had actually discovered a rare “interactive erotica” app, called MacPlaymate. The app was put together by comic book artist and game designer, Mike Saenz in 1986.

The premise of MacPlaymate was very simple:

Players could strip down a digital avatar named Maxie, mess around with Maxie using various sex toys with names like Mighty Mo Throbber, and watch Maxie 'make it' with other digital characters. The software even had a “panic” button that'd bring up a spreadsheet if someone walked by your computer screen.

The following is a NSFW demo of MacPlaymate, and the dude's voice and commentary are at least 20x creepier than the software itself:


Craigslist Ad of The Day: 'Romeo Rose' Has a Job Opening no Woman Would Ever Want

This Craigslist ad sounds legit.

You might remember Romeo Rose from a few years ago. He's the guy who created a website called "Sleepless in Austin" where he promised to give someone $1,500 if they found him the woman of his dreams.

He has particular tastes, according to The Daily Dot.

Rose, real name Laramie Busby, is allegedly back again! And 2015 is a new era in his search for love.

A Craigslist ad claims he is creating a "kissing documentary" and will give you (young women of his choosing) $10,000 if selected to star alongside him. And presumably kiss him.

Now, this isn't verified. Could anyone have written this Craigslist post? Yes. Could Romeo Rose have written it? Yes.

Who knows? Respond and see if you are one of the ~lucky~ ladies.

This 7'4' troll is looking for a new roommate in the D.C. area and he's hoping that it will be you. Like all trolls, this fiscally responsible guy really cares about making sure rent is covered and other bills are paid (he especially cares about tolls). But don't let this payment punctuality overshadow his wild side. This kickball-loving, happy hour hopping wild wonder likes to have a good time.

About Me
I am 328 lbs, 7 feet tall (7' 4" if you count horn height), yellow/greenish eyes and a heart-warming smile. Happy hour? Free networking event? Kickball?... I'm there. I love being fiscally responsible and making sure all debts are paid, tolls collected, and budgets balanced.

Apartment Requirements
Space is no issue! I am great in tight spaces so am happy to claim an unused den or living room corner. I am also quite prepared to sleep under your bed or chill out in the closet. NOTE: I suffer from frequent, violent night terrors brought on by fiscal stress. So let's keep our budget in check when we're bunking up, OK? We will need to convene weekly budget meetings to discuss utility bills -- keeping costs down keeps spirits up!

Outstanding Questions
What is our toll rate for pedestrians walking by outside? Is it strictly enforced or a catch-and-release program? Do you have a dedicated sheep/goat herder, or do you just hire freelancers?

Interested in learning more about this guy? Check him out on Tumblr or follow him on Twitter. Maybe you'll be the next one to have him make your house a...bridge overpass.
