    Busted.

    A genius in Hawaii allegedly advertised Coachella tickets via Craigslist but took the money and ran. Cops on the Big Island say 19-year-old Anthony Derick Berson of Keaʻau promised to send the tix and wristbands via FedEx to at least four victims who wired him hundreds of dollars.

    why do people wire money to a complete stranger they looked up on craigslist for such an expensive item?

    I definitely talked to this guy when trying to find a last minute ticket on craigslist for a friend. He said to wire him money and he'd overnight the ticket-- I laughed at him and said good luck finding anyone dumb enough to send money to a stranger. Apparently there WAS people dumb enough.
