A family in Woodstock, who just lost their home of 20 years to foreclosure, lost even more on Wednesday. It was because of what they triggered when they posted a craigslist ad Tuesday night. The wording of their well-intentioned ad sounded like they wanted to give away everything, and they could not stop the crowds from taking it all.
