Free boat, minivan called a Craigslist hoax

A woman in Sheboygan, Wis., was recently awakened at 7 a.m. when her dog began barking at the 18 or so people standing in her front yard wanting to take away her boat and minivan, which were advertised as free for the taking in an online want ad on Craigslist.

The only problem was that Debbie Brown hadn’t placed the ad, she doesn’t know who did and her boat and minivan were certainly not free for the taking.

By late morning, more than two dozen people had come by her home on Bluff Avenue in response to the ad, which said, “If I’m napping, take my boat.”
