Craiglist Sex Ads Were ID Theft Trap

A Minneapolis area crime duo have been arrested for luring people on Craigslist to sexual encounters, then stealing their wallets. Amy Ruth Bergquist and Eric Thorsen are accused of then using the wallets’ contents to steal the person’s identity to forge checks and pay for their Adderal and Dexedrine addictions. Didn’t momma ever tell you not to talk to strangers online and then try to have sex with them?
