Default Stupid person on craigslist

Just on this morning and there was a guy that posted and said his Dell laptop was stolen. Then 2 posts up there's a ad selling the laptop the same as his description, but it's as if the same guy reports it stolen and then wants to sell it.

Stolen report: http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/sys/518127743.html

For sale ad: http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/sys/518143885.html

Both of them are Dell Latitude C800's, both have 20ghdr (whatever that is), 256mram (dunno either), and a DVD burner. if it was really stolen, why would the thief put the same specs that don't make sense?

I just really don't understand people sometimes...

that sounds kinda fishy.... is there a way to report that to craigslist?

{edit} look at the sales one. He claims it's "hot", I'm thinking "hot" as in stolen and reselling....

Its obviously the same poster people play pranks like this all the time, the ads were made less than thirty minutes apart.

Probably is a legit number, but maybe not. Why doesn't some one try it? Area code 210. It may be some other person's number that he wants to annoy though. Seen that done as well.
