Fake ad sends scavengers to woman's home


Recommended Posts

CHICAGO ? A Chicago man is accused of taking family bickering too far by allegedly posting a fake Craigslist ad that said his sister was giving away all her belongings.

Police say the ad triggered a rush of bargain hunters to the Joliet, Ill., home of Paul Grachan's sister, and that she received phone calls from people asking about her things.

A Will County judge last week issued a $3,000 warrant against Grachan on charges of misdemeanor disorderly conduct. The ad was posted last August.

The 37-year-old Grachan says he had nothing to do with the ad. He says he has had a feud with his sister and that the two haven't spoken in about a year.
