A pregnant college student is warding off student debt by selling her positive pregnancy tests on Craigslist, harnessing the strangeness of the internet for her own benefit.

"Very self explanatory," wrote the woman on her Craigslist ad, titled "pregnancy tests/urine - $30."

A local Jacksonville TV station met up with the six-months-pregnant woman under the pretense of buying her $30 tests.

"I saw from other women and their experiences that it's very easy," the anonymous woman told the station, WJAX. So why not make "$200 in a day off something I have to do no matter what."

"Me being in college working on a bachelor's and needing all this money to pay for a degree, this was a no brainer."

So, you're wondering, why is there a market for this? Well, the woman speculated herself in the Craigslist post.

Whether you are using it for your own amusement as a prank, or to blackmail the CEO of Apple who you are having an affair with, I DON'T CARE AT ALL. This is an absolutely no questions asked type of deal.

Still, whether prank or blackmail, it's tough to stick to that "no questions asked" mantra. According a law expert at WJAX, "Fraud is the first thing that comes to my mind."

Although elaborating that it's not illegal to sell urine, the expert says that because the buyers are likely doing something illegal, "this is the kind of thing that makes legislators go 'we need to pass a law that says you can't do this.'"

And while this woman's making really good money, she's not quite making the same amount of cash as the women who sell their dirty underwear on the same website. If you thought people don't use Craigslist anymore, you're just not into the right (wrong?) stuff.
