A positive pregnancy test can bring on several emotions: joy, stress and sometimes even fear.

Now, in an unusual twist, positive pregnancy tests are popping up for sale on Craigslist.

A quick search on craigslist in several cities and you can find plenty of expecting moms hoping to cash in on their condition by selling positive pregnancy tests to anyone who is willing to pay up.

Some says its purpose is to prank while others insist they don't care what it's used for and that's where things can get messy.

"For example, if a married man was having an affair and he tried to break it off with the girl and she became upset and decided to, you know, present this fake pregnancy test and demand money or otherwise she'd tell the spouse I think that would be a level of blackmail." said Officer Gary Mason of Overland Park, Kansas Police Department.

Some other examples being passed around the internet include tricking a man into marrying them or at the very least trying to keep a partner in a relationship he no longer wants any part of. Whatever the reason, even if it is used just to joke, many say it's hitting below the belt.
