    There is the age old trick on craigslist of giving away something for free and then saying something like "dont have it anymore, here is my aff link to a similar offer/product/bullshit". My question is: is it legal to do this with a real paper classified ad?

    Not that I would do something so saturated, but let's say I was selling my laptop at some good ass price and told people to email me. A few days later, I tell them that I no longer have it but they could get one cheap <here> (aff link).

    Aside from moral issues, is there anyway to get in trouble for this?

    How could it be proved you didn't have the laptop that you were selling for cheap? And now you are just trying to be helpful to people that are contacting you. I say go for it.
