SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - A Sheboygan woman says she woke up Thursday morning to find people crowding her front yard.

Debbie Brown says if her dog hadn't started barking, her boat might be gone.

Those people responded to an ad on Craigslist offering a free boat and minivan. One problem -- Brown and her husband didn't place the ad on the Internet site.

The boat and minivan weren't even for sale, let alone free.

By late morning on Thursday more than two dozen people had responded to the ad. Finally, someone posted that it was a hoax.

Brown tells the Sheboygan Press she will sue if the police department discovers who posted the fake ad.
