As soon as the young mother posted this ad hundreds of people called the police to report her. As a result of her actions social services and Police were alerted. Authorities quickly tracked her and took both her two sons. When confronted the woman told authorities she did this as part of a silly joke. She reportedly did this out of a dare.
The woman explained how upset she really is over what happened and continues: "I put on Gumtree that I was selling a baby for £150,000. I just plucked that number out of thin air and I claimed I was acting as an agent for a friend.
It was very stupid and I shouldn't have done it, but I didn't think it would be taken seriously."
Because the woman suffers from postnatal depression things are worst. Loosing her two sons affects her a lot.
