A few years ago, an aspiring hacker discovered Craigslist, and after years of hacking into websites, figured out a way to make money on the site without breaking any laws.
He posted his Craigslist ad, and Craigslist responded with a Craigslist ad.
The Craigslist ad offered $10K for a computer.
The hacker made the purchase, and posted a link to the ad on the website.
The next day, a man answered the ad and purchased the computer.
This was illegal, but the hacker managed to get away with it, and he was soon arrested.
After the arrest, Craigslist was quick to offer help to other cybercriminals.
Craigslist said it would “work with law enforcement and law enforcement partners” to help people like the hacker avoid legal repercussions.
The hacker was sentenced to 10 months in jail and was required to pay back the $10k he received.
Craigslist then said it wouldn’t help the hacker sell the computer, but it wouldn “help authorities identify and prosecute those responsible for cybercrime.”
So, how did this happen?
The hacker was probably motivated by a desire to make a few bucks on Craigslist, but Craigslist doesn’t actually have a monopoly on selling computer parts.
Craigslist has a “specialty” section that lets people purchase computer parts, which are then shipped directly to customers.
Craigslist’s specialty section also has a special “buy it now” feature that allows people to make multiple purchases at once.
Craigslist isn’t obligated to help a hacker sell his computer, and some of the other listings offered on Craigslist were simply fake.
So, the hacker might have sold his computer on Craigslist in hopes of making a few extra bucks, but he might have gotten caught.
In any case, it’s not clear whether Craigslist actually helped him avoid legal ramifications.
Craigslist told Vice News that “it’s not our job to determine if someone is innocent or guilty of a crime, and we are unable to assist individuals in the sale of stolen goods.
Craigslist does not sell stolen goods, nor does Craigslist condone or condone cyber crimes.”
