The image you see below came from the humor site thechive.com, and it appears to be a Craigslist ad for a positive pregnancy test results for $25.
I thought surely it must be fake and checked Craigslist for Buffalo to be sure. The ad says it was posted on 5/8/2013, so if it was real, that particular ad is no longer there.
However, the seller was onto something. Apparently, there's a market for positive pregnancy test results, at least if Craigslist postings are any indication. Go to Craigslist.org and pick any large city, search for "pregnancy test" and odds you'll find some.
The one below comes from Central New Jersey and gives credit for the idea to "The lady in Buffalo."
The next one from Dallas/mid cities purports to be from the father who is simply trying to raise "a few extra bucks for the baby."
One thing most of them have in common is that they say they don't care what the buyer plans to do with it and won't ask question.
So why would someone want a positive pregnancy test? This prospective buyer from Dallas admits right up front that she wants to get even with some guy. Just what her plan entails isn't disclosed, but at least she's not seeking a hit man, in this ad, anyway.
Could it be that the buyers of these tests are females hoping to a extract a marriage proposal under false pretenses? Stranger things have happened. Women were once called "the fair sex." They didn't like that very much, so maybe "the unfair sex" might be a better fit.

Aside: One has to imagine modern boy scouts sitting around the camp fire telling scary stories, not about the ax murderer, but marriage entrapment. OK, maybe throw in a story or two about Lorena Bobbitt and her ilk before the fire goes out.
