Police: Craigslist Posting About Weekend E-Waste Event Not Real

Posted: Updated:
Police say a Craigslist post about a free e-waste recycling event happening this weekend in Reno is not real.  

The post claims that this weekend's event was to be held at 1035 Commercial Row, which is City of Reno property.

Police say the post is fraudulent because the posters do not have a City permit and will most likely take any computer, laptops or other electronic data collecting devices and extract personal information off of them.

Police say they have requested that the post be removed from Craigslist.

A still of the posting can be seen to the left.
