    Default Positive pregnancy tests being sold on Craigslist

    A gross phenomenon just spotlighted on the Drudge Report has people selling their used, positive pregnancy tests on Craigslist, and wouldn't you know it, it's also happening in the Houston area.

    The Daily Dot's Audra Schroeder pinpointed the new fad late last week.

    According to other listings across the country that have been making the rounds, positive tests can be used to coax unwilling suitors into marriages, or just to freak out friends and family.

    Searching Craigslist this afternoon, we found six separate listings for positive pregnancy tests: two in the Pearland area, one in Katy, and others in the Pasadena and Clear Lake area.

    Prices all seem to top out at $25 around Houston for the devices, which were at one point urinated on.

    We've reached out to a few of the sellers and are waiting to hear back about their sales. Have they at least kept them on ice? Are we talking name-brand pregnancy tests, or the value store kind? Inquiring minds ...

    Valerie, 30, is nine months pregnant and posted her ad yesterday. She didn't want to disclose her last name. The Pearland woman says she created the posting on a whim.

    "I read an article about the woman in Buffalo selling hers and I was in shock, but I wanted to do it for the easy money," she says. "Plus, it was funny."

    She's sold other things on Craigslist, but nothing like this. Her husband was at first confused and then thought it was quite funny. He thinks that if someone wants to buy a used pregnancy test that it's their own business.

    "This is just hilarious at this point," says Valerie.

    She hasn't actually taken the test yet, and isn't sure if she will end up going through with it.

    Craiglist's list of prohibited items says you can't sell medical devices ("including prescription or contact lenses, defibrillators, hypodermic needles or hearing aids"). "Blood, bodily fluids or body parts" are named, which would possibly entail something like a pregnancy test.

    Id love for Dateline NBC to do an investigation on this. Kinda like their pedo stings from a couple years back. Because the people showing up to buy these need to be publicly shamed.


    There's something you gotta know...and that is Im Chris Hansen with Dateline NBC...and we're doing a story on people who buy positive pregnancy tests off Craigslist...now if there's anything else you'd like to tell us, feel free...if not you're free to go

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.
