Baby offered for sale for $500 on Craigslist

Authorities in Florida are investigating a Craigslist ad purporting to sell a newborn baby for $500, scrambling to determine if the ad was just a hoax. The ad which showed up on Friday claimed the baby is a well-behaved 2-week-old who sleeps quietly through the night. The ad said the buyer would be provided with clothes, formula and the baby’s 4-year-old sister free of charge.

Given how hard adpption is in the US. I am surprised stuff like this didn't happen sooner and more often. People want kids and can't have them. I have tried to adopt twice now and both time stuff has happened. 1st time slightly older kid (8) got returned to drugged out mom because she made progress (The kid went back into foster care a year later.) The second one was a new born that the mother changed her mind after seeing the kid. (Not upset about the second one.)

Has to be a hoax considering that the ad claimed to be from an employee of Child Services...
