BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A woman in Buffalo posted a Craigslist ad claiming she will sell a positive pregnancy test for $25.
The woman goes on to say that she doesn't care how the buyer uses the test because it is none of her business. And though the ad seems bizarre, there are dozens like them in cities across the U.S. But why would someone try to sell a positive pregnancy test?
Officer Gary Mason of the Overland Park, KS Police Department said, "For example, if a married man was having an affair and he tried to break it off with the girl and she became upset and decided to, you know, present this fake pregnancy test and demand money or otherwise she'd tell the spouse, I think that would be a level of blackmail out of that form."
Some other examples being passed around the internet include tricking a man into marrying them or at the very least trying to keep a partner in a relationship he no longer wants any part of.
Whatever the reason, even if it is used just to joke, many say it's hitting below the belt.
The average price of the positive tests start at $20.
