What in the World? Someone Listed Their Baby for Sale on Craigslist.

Officials in Florida are investigating a Craigslist post advertising a baby for sale.

"Selling brand newborn baby for $500. Baby is 2 weeks old. It sleeps, don't make noise at night. Formula and clothes will give to you," the ad read. "Can give you the baby 4 year old sister for free. I live in a quiet influential neighborhood. I work for department of children and families. I don't wanna be judged for not wanting these kids."

According to the Miami Herald, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) is unsure whether the posting is legitimate or "a crude hoax."

FDLE is waiting on computer records to help them identify the person behind the posting. It interviewed at least one woman they suspected of being the seller although she denied it.

What's even crazier? Apparently, this isn't the first time someone tried selling their child on the popular buying and selling website.

In 2017, a Tennessee man and woman were arrested after police said they tried to sell their 5-month-old son on Craigslist. Police arranged an undercover sting, and charged them with aggravated child abuse, child neglect and endangerment.

The same year, a Colorado man apologized for offering his baby for sale for $2,500. He called it a dumb joke. “Healthy white baby for sale cheap. Works fine but leaks out of his eyes occasionally,” the ad read.

Four years ago, a Georgia woman was arrested after posting an ad on Craiglist asking for an unwanted baby — so she could give the child to her 14-year-old daughter.

If someone really doesn't want their child, they should consider placing the child up for adoption, not place an ad online for the first person with the most cash in their pocket. This is a human being, not a couch or TV.
