Nasty Prank: Woman’s Child Offered for Sale on Xbox Live

A Florida woman is understandably upset after someone posted a message on Xbox Live advertising that her two-year-old daughter was for sale – and included her home phone number. The offer included free shipping.

As reported by the Charlotte Sun, Christa Manos of Punta Gorda began receiving angry phone calls from Xbox Live users on Saturday night.:

The [first caller] was furious Manos would consider putting a price tag on her child.

At first, it sounded like a prank. But the phone kept ringing, with more and more angry voices from across the United States. Some just cursed at Manos. Others called her a bad mother. She didn’t know what they were talking about.

"By the 18th or 19th call, I knew something wasn’t right," Manos said.

The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.
