Man Sells Ghost In A Wooden Chest On Craigslist

Todd Rigney

Adventurous consumers can purchase just about anything on Craigslist these days, including possibly "p**sed off" ghosts residing inside ordinary wooden chests.

The folks over at the Huffington Post caught wind of a guy who attempted to purchase some kind of supernatural entity residing inside a cramped wooden container from a seller on Craigslist. Unfortunately for the would-be ghost owner, the man sold it to another prospective buyer before he could close the deal.

The story of the Craigslist ghost first appeared over at Barstool Sports. According to a guy named Dan, he stumbled across someone selling the spectral being for $300. This included the aforementioned wooden container, which the ghost apparently called home.

Check out the listing's description below.

"I have a male Ghost for sale. He came into my house when I purchased a old wooden chest. He is attached to the Chest. The chest comes along with the Ghost. He is attached to it. What ever room I put the chest in, he hangings around it. If I try to hide the Chest, he searches for it and even gets mad if he can't find it for awhile. You get the chest and the Ghost for $300.00."

After emailing the seller some questions -- including if the ghost was a Green Bay Packers fan -- Dan began a curious conversation with the seller. Unfortunately, the price of the ghost jumped from $300 to around $1,000, much to the would-be owner's dismay.

Here's what the ghost's handler had to say about the entity in question.

"Hi there. I cant answer any of your questions, and if you showed up with $1000. I would not and could not sell to you. This is serious. I p**sed it off once and it hurt me. I have pics. I have also played around with it and had a little fun. I have a video of that. If I try to send it off with just anyone, it will hurt me. I am not a quack and this is real."

This isn't the first ghost-related ad to pop up on Craigslist. Total Sorority Move recently spotted a listing for a possibly haunted college house.

"The ad in question presented a relatively normal college house: old and slightly decrepit with low rent and a crushed red Solo cup on the front lawn. Nothing strange there. Upon further inspection, I noticed the title of the ad read '1 Bedroom / House / West Campus / Pool / Possibly Haunted.'"
