A Raleigh woman is accused of using counterfeit money to buy items off of Craigslist, police said.

Jasmin Renee Singletary, 23, of 5413 Holland Farms Way, was being held under a $45,000 bond in the Wake County jail on Thursday night.

Singletary is charged with obtaining property under false pretense and uttering a forged instrument, according to arrest warrants.

In one case, she is accused of using fake $20 bills to buy an Xbox 360 and Play Station 3, worth more than $400.

Police said she met at least seven of her alleged victims through Craigslist.

    gummy33 - was your comment necessary? You stand up defending one man and in the same breath attack another man and a lot of people who have done you no wrong (by saying Republicans you are covering anyone who doesn't think the way you do). I am just concerned that we are getting off topic and getting ugly again. No, I am not a Republican, but I ask that we all take a deep breath and chill. No elected official or political party is worth the dissention that this country seems now to embrace.

    You really have to be careful when making transactions on craiglist. I see more and more crime coming from craigslist. People need to be more careful. Hope she goes to jail for a long time for this.

    notagain1903, would these policies be okay, if the President wasn't half black? It's funny how even the slightest hint of black disqualifies the white half, but it's been said white is the dominant race. The policies changed and inserted by Obama and Democracts are only there to act as a clorox to clean up the filth given to this country by eight years of Bush and the Republicans.

    Absolutely convincing, notagain1903....your statement should squelch all those liberals who claim you hate the president because of what color he is. Anyone can plainly see you just don't like his policies and methods. ;)

    All money has a signature, making counterfeit bills place said signatures on them, hence forgery.

    I like how these rats are learning how to use craigslist and perpetrating more and more crimes on there.

    Thanks bear2010, I was wondering what they truly meant. They give and have so many trumped up charges sometime, the wording gets as confusing as the charge.

    What does "uttering a formed instrument" mean?
    Forgery is signing someone else's name to a document, uttering is the actual presenting of that document to someone else.

    If you sign a stolen check, give it to me, and I cash it, you are guilty of forgery, and I am guilty of uttering.

    Putting counterfeit money into circulation would also be considered uttering.

    Probably Monopoly bills.
