"Man seeks answers: homeowner caught in a Craigslist hoax"

Sounds like somebody got mad at somebody else, and then they came up with a creative way to harass that person.

The owner of a home in northwest San Antonio is trying to figure out who posted a Craigslist ad saying his houshold [sic] and garage items were free.

Bexar County authorities say this afternoon, someone posted a bogus ad on Craigslist. The ad said, "come take what you want for FREE!"

The ad even gave the access code to the house and said the owners were moving to another country.

(from KENS-5)

The article says a few people actually showed up in response to the ad.

That's messed up.

UPDATE: Ah, KABB has a bit more about it:

Bexar County Sheriff Investigators say a disgruntle [sic] employee used the Craig's List website to get back at a former boss. Neighbors of the people who live in the northwest side house say a disgruntled ex-employee posted a listing for "free household and garage contents."
It's always the disgruntled employee, isn't it?
