In Harold Schecter's A to Z Encyclopedia of Serial Killers, the entry for "Internet" reads in part: "If the Internet has become a very useful tool for people interested in serial killers, there's some indication that it may also prove to be a resource for serial killers themselves." Maurice Godwin, a forensic consultant, argued that "There are some sadistic predators that rely on the Mardi Gras Effect ["the ability to hide one's identity on the Internet"] to lure and murder repeatedly." The first serial killer known to have used the Internet to find victims was John Edward Robinson, who was arrested in 2000 and was referred to in Law Enforcement News as the "USA's first Internet serial killer" and "the nation's first documented serial killer to use the Internet as a means of luring victims." Online predators, participants in internet suicide and suicide-homicide pacts, and internet killers may seek out victims through internet forums, chat rooms, listservs, email, bulletin boards, social networking sites, online role playing games, online dating services, Yahoo groups, or Usenet.[updated 6/29/2015] I want to explain a common craigslist scam that targets people renting out property.If you are not aware of this scam, you may fall victim to it.

Jennifer Butler was struggling to track down a pair of Bruno Mars tickets for her son’s 6th birthday.“Against my better judgment, there was someone on Craigslist selling hard tickets with the receipt,” she said.
How the Scam Works The scammers or purported roommates make initial contact with you, stating that they are interested in renting your room, but cannot visit because they are overseas or have a tight time constraint and can’t make the time.
The scammer insists they are easy going and would like to move. They might be a medical school or college student, or perhaps starting a new computer or modeling job, and they might even be arriving with their parents.
