wat started out as a harmless prank might turn out to be a lawsuit.
I recently read an article about a boy that played what seemed to be a harmless joke and ended up to be something unexpected. This teenage Idaho boy was bored at home. So he made a craigslist naming himself Rick Obelophy. And created a message that said Rick was looking to sell his 4-year-old son for $5,000. The boy wrote, "He doesn't fuss very much but when he does he just screams for hours. I usually just put him in his closet until he stops and that usually works."Obviously this raised red flags. The police in Washington began investigating possible child selling and child abuse crimes. They tracked down the teen's home. He (the boy) claimed it to be a harmless prank. But the police are still debating on wether or not to press charges on the boy.
