The reasons for placing positive pregnancy tests for sale vary. Some are selling the them as a practical joke, while others are selling it to con men into staying with them, marry them, or to get money.
In this short clip below from CNN, some people were asked about their opinions on women posting positive pregnancy tests for sale on craigslist. One man stated: “I still don’t think it’s right. That’s playing with people’s emotions. That’s a real life situation; you don’t mess with stuff like that.” Another person said, “That’s like any other con. Cons are no good and it never results in anything positive.”
The ads on craigslist to purchase the positive pregnancy tests range from $20-$40.
