GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Grand Rapids Police have determined that a craigslist ad supposedly offering an 11-month-old girl for adoption, is a scam.

Several people alerted us to the ad that says the couple, from Grand Rapids, is looking for a home for their daughter.  Grand Rapids Police have determined that the ad comes from the United Kingdom and is actually a scam trying to get money from prospective parents.

As of 4:00pm Friday, the ad was still active on craigslist: http://grandrapids.craigslist.org/kid/4268467389.html

If you see any suspicious postings, you should contact your local law enforcement or contact the administrators of the website where you see the ad.
