A pair of women from Toledo, Ohio thought it would be a good idea to try and sell their Nintendo Wii consoles via Craigslist. Ladies: it is never a good idea to conduct video game business over Craigslist.

In two completely unrelated incidents, one woman was assaulted when a prospective "purchaser" came to her home. "As I kind of went to close the screen door, he then proceeded to come in," she said. "He punched me in the face, grabbed the Wii off the end of the table and was gone before I even knew it."

The other lady's transaction went by without a hitch. Or so she thought. After the buyer had left with the console, however, the lady noticed they'd paid in counterfeit bills.


Toledo, Craigslist, no, no no.
