You know you should always be careful when buying or selling things on Craigslist. Be sure to meet during the day in a neutral area away from your home, and it's a good idea to take someone with you.
You should also inspect the goods before you take them home with you. But one couple didn't know that they should have inspected their goods before selling it to a stranger.
When Hayley Crews' boyfriend listed her box spring on Craigslist before the holidays and moving in together, they had no idea they'd be in for an emotional rollercoaster. With the box spring gone, the couple readied themselves for Christmas and the trip they were taking to Arizona for the holiday.
Strangely, Crews' cat, Camo, could not be found. Crews' boyfriend, Roy Dufek, realized that Camo's disappearance coincided with the day he sold the box spring.
