Dozens of people showed up at a home in California last Sunday because a Craigslist ad said there would be free stuff, but there was one problem — the homeowner didn’t post the ad and wasn’t giving away the stuff the ad promised.
According to CBS Los Angeles, homeowner David Otero had no idea what was happening when people started showing up at his house, and some even bypassed his security gate.
“I said, ‘Oh my gosh, what’s going on?,” Otero told CBS Los Angeles.
Otero suspects that a disgruntled neighbor may have posted the ad because it named items that he owns.
“They know I have a boat and that I’m a follower of Jesus Christ, and I have bibles and electronics,” Otero said.
Otero is currently trying to get Craigslist to remove the ad, but hasn’t received a response from the company.
