Positive Pregnancy Tests Bought on Craig’s List to Trick Men to Marry
Memphis Divorce Lawyer Miles Mason in the Media
Memphis divorce lawyer Miles Mason, Sr. interviewed by Adam Hammond, WREG News Channel 3, Memphis, Tennessee, airing September 5, 2013. Women could be committing serious crimes, like extortion, by buying positive pregnancy tests on Craig’s List online and using them to induce marriage proposals or false child support claims. Prices are as low as low as $25 a positive test result stick. Memphis divorce attorney Miles Mason says that’s fraud. “In my opinion, that type of evidence of a false pregnancy to induce marriage should result in an annulment,” said Mason. An annulment cancels the marriage, like it never happened. Mason says it’s legal to sell and purchase the stick. “It’s the same thing as selling a used Q-tip. It may not be something you want, but there is someone who would buy it and there is nothing inherently wrong with selling a pregnancy test,” said Mason.
