Ok my bad.
Since everyone here has kegs that were 100% purchased legally and have receipts to prove it. I must be the bad guy. I tried to inject a little humor in to a long process that was very frustrating. I never went looking for stolen kegs but from what all of you are saying they must be. Even though they were never offered to me as stolen, in fact just the opposite. I will now turn myself in. Anyone willing to put some money in my commissary?

Who cares where they came from, they're yours now. I say good job and congratulations on your kegs. Last I checked they hadn't started installing LoJack on kegs yet. I'm guessing you'll be just fine.

The bar stool lawyers and preachers are on the prowl..... No doubt, the kegs were stolen by a country wide syndicate of nibble fingered keg crooks. Selling them on a secret advertizing site called Craigs List or through clandestine flea markets. It's a mega-billion dollar business. An agency needs to be formed, to stop this illicit sale of beer kegs.

Homebrewers have a bad rep? Thanks for the laugh.

In all fairness, some people are just totally sketchy on Craigslist. They get all weird about selling stuff to strangers and are totally afraid for their privacy, like you are either a threat at stealing from them or raping them or something. I have made some legitimate transactions over Craigslist of legitimate merchandise (both selling and buying), in which the other party was quite shady. I'm not saying that Frige's kegs aren't stolen, I'm just saying that because some sellers from Craigslist acted shady doesn't necessitate the fact that the kegs are stolen.

I have no idea if these kegs were stolen or not. I was only commenting on the OP statement about the cost being as much as the "deposit price". The deposit is not the purchase price of the keg. You can buy the keg from breweries and other sources legitimately. When you leave a deposit, you are promising to return it. Keeping it is not a legitimate purchase. It is also going back on your word. You all can do what you want of course, I just have a thing about thievery. I don't like it when its done to me. I guess I'm the oddball.
