Gory Rory

This is a brief yet unsettling encounter that reminded me just how fucked up absolutely anyone out there could be. As a horror aficionado, I’ve become somewhat desensitized to the countless creepypastas or bad social media or deep web experiences, but this is real. It happened to me this morning.

I had recently come into possession of a new writing desk, and was no longer in need of my old one, despite it being in fairly good condition. I live in a small flat, so getting it gone as soon as possible was a priority space-wise. I decided to list it as ‘free’ in a local Facebook buy and sell groups, where I had made and dealt purchases in the past. Over time though, the group had become somewhat of a community notice board and it was not uncommon to encounter memes and people complaining about public transport, among other irrelevant posts and trolls.

Within minutes of uploading a picture I took from the website where I had originally purchased the desk, as my hallway where the desk was awkwardly placed was not ideal for good scale photos, I had received a comment.
“Hey, how much do you want for this?”, asked a user named Rory.
I was a little confused as I had stated in the post that it was free, but wasn’t too alarmed.
“It’s free, just want it gone”, I replied.
“Could you get a real picture? That one looks fake.”
A little annoyed, but understanding of the request, I went into the hallway to take a half-arsed picture of it. My cat had decided to sit on it so she featured in the photo, so I added the witty comment, “cat not included”, in hopes to convince this guy to take away my unwanted furniture.
“Can’t really tell from the pic. What kinda condition is it in?”.
I sighed. I had described the areas of small wear and tear in the original post. Before I could retort with sarcasm, my co-worker jumped in to save me.
“Dude it’s a free desk, take it or leave it lmao”.
Rory went on to accuse me of being rude to him, and wasting his time. What a useless troll, I thought, and ignored his further comments claiming I was harassing him.

Beneath the Lake and Behind the Truth

My mom and whole family has always bought and sold items on Craigslist for as long as I can remember. Since I was little, I always found that the whole dealing with a stranger on the middle of nowhere deal was the unsafest thing you could do but, free stuff right? This story proved me wrong. A few years back, My family was in search of a bed frame for cheap. With little to no luck, my mom began to search craigslist and found one. It seemed to be in decent condition so she messaged the seller. He seemed off even by his messages. He wanted to meet at his home in the middle of nowhere. My mother felt unsafe. In her gut feeling she knew she could not meet up with this man.  She declined his offer even though we went down on the price to coax her into coming. Soon after the fact, an older couple from a few cities over went missing. They had went on a road trip to purchase something they found on Craigslist. In a small Georgia town,  the same one that my Mother almost traveled to to meet the man with the Bed frame, the couples bodies and car was found in a lake near to the mans address, weeks after they went missing. The man was found and arrested but it’s unnerving to think that this seller and murderer was the same man that tried to coax my mom into coming to his house in the woods. This stranger off craigslist could have made me a motherless child. I have not been on the site in search of things since but, if you have to meet to purchase something make sure it’s in a public place with witnesses and you always follow your gut feeling

Craigslist creepy bar owner

I live in Houston & 4 years ago I attracted a creepy pedophile through craigslist. I have autism & had just turned 20 & was posting resumes on craigslist hoping to find some type of honest work. I posted this picture of me to include it in hopes it would increase my chances of finding work. This was months before I got my 1st job at Walmart so I was desperate.

Eventually I got called by a man who sounded a little like Mr Rogers, except creepy & effeminate. He said he saw my resume on craigslist & was willing to give me some ‘work’. He told me he owns a bar & is a lonely man. I thought maybe he was willing to give me a gig at his bar, possibly as a ragtag bouncer or dishwasher. He said he was a gay man & asked if I was okay with being friends with him. He wanted to meet up with me & I was asking what work I would be doing & he said “well none really. I’d pay you to spend some time with me.” He got around to asking if I had a girlfriend or partner & I ranted how Ive been rejected by every girl Ive shown interest in & was a virgin. He acted like he was gonna give me a job & help me out with the ladies.

It got more creepy when he complimented my picture & ranted how ‘nice looking’ I was. Eventually I hung up & didn’t know what to think.

The Craigslist Creep

So,This was just s few months ago. I had just bought a brand new 2016 Kawasaki Ninja, I love this bike. I wanted a new set of grips for a good price, so  I went to Craigslist. It was absolutely the worst decision ever..

I saw something pop up for some green grips, same color as the bike. I texted the guy who posted the ad and we agreed that I would go to his place for the grips on an upcoming Thursday. When Thursday arrived , I went to his house, on my bike. The only thing I carried, close to a weapon, was my Swiss Army knife.

I pulled up to the house and saw an old rust bucket, and a 1979 Chevy Silverado. It was a nice truck. I took a picture with my old camera that I take with me on my bike. I knocked on the door, nobody answered. I waited about 3-4 minutes. Next thing I know the garage door is opening and it is some old guy in overalls covered in oil or something, he said his son took the grips. So, I said thanks and rode home.  The next thing I see, in my side mirror, horrifies me. That truck is behind me in hot pursuit, so I gun it. Now, I have a 700 CC bike, so I can easily outrun him. I lost him quick and felt safe but confused when I get home. I put my bike in my garage and go inside, still wondering what the hell his problem was.
