Man Arrested for Exploiting Elderly in Craigslist Scam

A Waco man had bonded out Wednesday from the McLennan County Jail after he was arrested for exploiting an elderly person through a Craigslist scam.

Arthur Ray Goolsby, 27, posted a $5,000 bond and was released on a charge of exploitation of an elderly person, jail records showed.

Goolsby was arrested in connection with an earlier event during which he took deposit money from a 70-year-old victim for the purchase of a pick up truck that was advertised on Craigslist, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

Swanton said the victim paid a deposit but when he went to pick up the truck the seller had disappeared.

Beware anytime you respond to Craigslist. Remember the Craigslist killer? It's not Craigslist' fault, but it's still a reality.
