In a buyer beware lesson for the ages, comes a tale out of South Carolina that will make your skin crawl.
A couple was in the market for a new sofa and turned to Craigslist where they found a deal on one sold out of a storage unit.
A doctor’s diagnosis, likely bed bug bites.
“Turned on the flashlight and got right down beside my bed and saw one bug,” Johns said. “I’m looking some more, and I see another one. I bagged five bugs. When the exterminators came and they actually pulled the couch apart, it was immediately clear that the couch — in fact, that one section of the couch, was infested.”
Johns told WISTV the $225 couch has cost her $3,000.
WISTV contacted the seller who said he had “no clue” about the bed bugs.
