JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 19 (UPI) -- A Florida woman said she is paying her way through college by selling her positive pregnancy tests and urine on Craigslist.

The ad on the Jacksonville-area Craigslist page offers "positive pregnancy tests or urine" in an "absolutely no questions asked type of deal."

The woman, who is three months pregnant, is selling the positive tests or urine for $30 each, but the Craigslist post says customers traveling more than 60 miles can get two positive tests for $35.

The Craigslist post reads:

"Very self explanatory I am 3 months and I am providing a product in which the consumer is able to purchase positive pregnancy tests or urine for your own use. Whether you are using it for your own amusement such as a prank, or to blackmail the ceo of where ever who you are having an affair with I DONT CARE AT ALL this is an absolutely no questions asked type of deal tell me what you need I provide it for monetary exchange. I will not overcharge for the urine test but I will not be low balled either do not contact me if you are going to be cheap and difficult.

Email me then I will exchange phone contact due to scammers I removed my number.

Feel free to contact when you need to i check my email every HR for those traveling over 60 miles I will give 2 tests for $35.00.

Thank-you. :)"

The woman told WJAX/WFOX, which sent an intern to successfully make an undercover purchase, that she was inspired to start the business while browsing the Internet for jobs she could perform at home while pregnant.

"I saw from other women and their experiences that it's very easy," the woman said.

She said she makes "$200 in a day off something I have to do no matter what."

The woman said she using the money to fund her college education.

"Me being in college working on a bachelor's and needing all this money to pay for a degree, this was a no-brainer," the woman said.

Legal expert Dale Carson said the woman's actions fall into a legal gray area.

"This is the kind of thing that makes legislators go 'we need to pass a law that says you can't do this,'" Carson said.

He said there are no laws against selling urine, but a buyer seeking to fake a pregnancy could be subject to fraud charges.
