Single Mom Tried to Scam the Person Who Sold Her a Couch With Fake Bed Bug Pictures

By

Buying and selling things online is always a risk. Usually, it's the buyer that has to be cautious to make sure the seller isn't screwing them over by trying to sell them something faulty and is being honest about what they're offering. But every once in a while, it's the seller that has to beware.

One person recently learned this lesson the hard way when they tried to sell their old couch on Facebook Marketplace. The woman who bought their sofa tried to claim that it was infested with bed bugs — a serious issue — in order to scam them into giving her money. Needless to say, the woman's ill-conceived scheme didn't work.
