Craigslist mom & daughter scam busters

February 10, 2009

A Pennsylvania man advertises a pickup truck on Craigslist.  22 year old Annette Castro sees the truck and writes him a check for $400 to hold it until they could meet again after title had been transferred.  On the assigned date, Annette goes to meet the truck seller and leaves three hours later having been stood up.  Later she finds the same truck advertised again on Craigslist and this time she sends her mother to meet the man and she invites along the police who make the arrest on the spot.
