ATLANTA — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into whether an Atlanta Craigslist ad to sell an unborn baby for drugs or money is a hoax, WSB-TV reported Thursday.

Authorities say they have received more than 100 calls about the post.

In the shocking ad, a woman claims to be pregnant:

“6 months pregnant, don’t want it. Willing to trade it for $ or drugs. Guaranteed white, so don’t come at me cheap, serious offers only.”

The post immediately caught the attention of various agencies and spurred a full-blown investigation.

“We have gotten a lot of tips, we’ve gotten tips from various sources and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children,” said GBI spokeswoman Sherry Lang.
