An Omaha, Nebraska family is turning away dozens of would-be buyers after a prankster repeatedly posted their camper for sale on Craigslist.
Sara, camper's owner, who didn't want to give her last name, says she thinks a neighbor is behind the prank.
She's upset now that several potential buyers have come to her home; some have even entered the yard to inspect the camper without talking to anyone.
The internet prankster posted her name, address and phone number on the phony ad for the camper.
The price was listed once at $150 and the second time $450, both so low Sara and her husband received 100 phone calls in eight hours.
"That is going overboard on a prank to send people to somebody's house," Sara says.
Douglas County Sheriff's investigators consider it a criminal offense.
They'll make a misdemeanor arrest when they can prove who posted the phony ad for Sara's camper.
Lt. Mark Gentile says a subpoena sent to Craigslist six weeks ago has not been answered, so tracking a suspect has been difficult.
The camper go into storage this week.
