Thanks for your interests in the office assistant position, I will deeply appreciate all genuine efforts to...
Maybe we didn't get it right. Every time we advertise competitively on Craigslist, like you can:
- buy a Vita Mix 4500 TurboBlend Blender with sound enclosure for $ 399.95, or
- if you own a Vita Mix 5200 Blender you qualify to enter a free drawing for a $ 100 free sound enclosure for your own Vita Mix 5200 Blender
- Blendtec blenders are noisy and we offer a free sound enclosure with it when you purchase the Blendtec HP3A blender for $ 399 from us
Somebody removes or requests the removal, or reports our adds for removal from CraigsList. Where is the complaint? As you know, eBay owns Craigslist. Craigslist is equally poorly process engineered. Anybody can simply report any competitor for whatsoever and they remove the ad.
It does not cost anything to advertise for example a Vita Mix 5200 Blender Review Comparison with The Vita Mix Vita Prep 3 hp 1005 blender, or the Vita Mix 4500 Turbo Blender. But somebody out there, an affiliate marketer for Vita Mix, or another blender dealer, or even Vita Mix themselves, of Blendtec, etc... find offense or something wrong, justifiable or not, and your hard work goes to the garbage.
It is just bothersome. Time is money. Where can we advertise effectively? It is true that times are tough. Competition is harsh and mean, rude, and Craigslist supports this behavior, just as eBay does. On eBay, if you are seller, you constantly have to fight negative or neutral feedback with customers. Customers have all the recourse, but sellers have none to make a customer give you a better feedback. So the competition buys your cheap products and gives you the worst kind of feedback. This ranks you poorly and your listings show up on the bottom instead on top. This is the kind of company, the same, Craigslist.
Is it worth advertising on Craigslist? Yes it is. Why? When you place an html-based link or URL on your listing, it will rank your listing very high, even within top-10 on Google within a 1 week's time. This is great. But it is just frustrating of having to fight the removal thing.
Thank you for listening. I hope this helps a little.
Don't send money orders to individuals selling stuff on Craigslist you may never get your item bought as I did. I bought a cheap $25 Game Boy Micro and was promised it would be mailed to me before 8/2007. Never got the item. The seller was from Ocala, Florida by the way. I negotiated with the ### and never got what I bought.
I pray someone poor stole the $25 from him and helped them out!!
I am a single mother with a 13 years old. Since all the changes in the economy and I have been strugle to pay my rent I decide to rent my room. A couple of people approach me and I decide to take this girl from canada she She told me she was interested in the room for just 10 months which for me workout fine. I was always Communication with her until 2 weeks ago she send me a email stating that her boss sent me a check for 4250 but it was a mistake. she said cash the check. I thought this was real because the check has the name of a company called international organic accreditation which I found on the internet. I deposited the check and the amount was in my account when I went the next to the back the check she told me to go an send her the rest of the money which was 3250 to her boss but since the check didn't clear I didn't take any money. then I deposit the check the second time and I had in my account 500.00 PLUS 4250. I made a transaction of a 1, 000 dollars it seems was 500.00 from my money and 500.00 from the check. the bank now close my account because they think I was doing fraud. I have been with this bank for the past 10 years and this is the first time something like this happen to me. I even told them that I didn't know the check was a scam but they don't care I have the copy of the check and the emails between me and her also I have the address and name for the male she wanted me to send the money
UPDATE: I just received an email from the company stating that it is fradulent. The only thing I don't undestand how these people can get hand to a check with even the logo of the company and even so how they know this company exist.
Somehow it was my fault to trust these people but before I try to cash the check I try to verify online if the name of the company was legit. I google it and I found it therefore I thought it was all true.

I live in Missouri. Craigslist here is loaded with nuthing but crap. I gave up using them as a job source...
Everyone out there, watch out for the convincing sales add on CRAIGSLISTOPTIMIZER.COM who will rip you off for $97 and more expenses incurred as you run a zero to none profit affiliated website using there templates. Basically, this website promises you to make your money back in one day of setting it up. Well, setting it up completely takes more than one day because you have to wait for approval from ebay affiliate partner. Amazon partner was no problem, and so was google adsense. It took me 3 days to finish and upload my affiliate website and of course I did not get the approval from ebay to partner with for no apparent reason like the website claimed could happen. However, they promised that all I need is the approval from amazon to be successful and that I can just turn off the ebay store side of my website when referring people through my product listings.
Well, the main function of the program is to start emailing advertisers on craigslist to see if they are interested in buying products listed on amazon or ebay, which less than likely not because most of those people advertised wanted things either dirt cheap or for free or trade which makes this affiliate business less than demanding. And when I ask for their 100% guarantee refund promise, I get a flat out cuss word of out them insulting me on my lack of success and disclaimed what they had claimed on their website and don't even refund my money at all or even emailing me back to make their case. They did tell me give it 90 days to get result on my first email requesting my refund. Logically, why that long? Well, 120 days later, I had one sale on amazon that is around $5.00 purchase that I earned 20 cents commission on after long days emailing people and paying all those domain registration and hosting fees. What a rip-off this company is.
Oh yeah, when you don't get approved from ebay partner affiliates program, you can't turn off the ebay store part of the website like they claimed also because I test it out myself by emailing it back to myself and guess what, the ebay store is still there and if and when your advertiser even would go through ebay bidding process, you would have to wait for some time (days or weeks) in hope that the person would win the bid and you make money off that 1 to 2% commission off a sale. That is also hoping that the advertiser stays on your web-link to continue the bid (chances are zero because they now can just go straight to ebay and logging into their ebay account, so there goes your commission link hopes lost).
So don't even fall into their lame business advertising, keep your money and time well spent on something else. And any website promoting this website is also a scam. Trust me, I've tried them too.
This is not really a complaint towards Craigslist but for someone who is claiming to be selling a 2006 Infiniti G35X for $4400.00. After emailing back and forth with this person he suggested we use a "3rd party" such as eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection Program. This person even gave me a VIN of JNKCV51F56M615917 so I could run a Carfax report. After researching this found it to be a scam!!!
For anyone who can help the email ([protected]@gmail.com) was used in the ad, luckly I was able to catch this before getting scammed and want to make sure I did what I could to prevent someone else from getting scammed.
If there is anything else I could do please let me know
We received an email stating that this person wanted to buy a rug from us. They told us they were hearing impaired, and just moved into a new town and had movers delivering their things. Then we received another email after making a deal, that their bank accidentally wrote out their check to us for a much larger amount ($2, 450.00). They claimed that they were desperate for their money to pay the movers. They told us that the cashiers check would be delivered via UPS. They then asked if we would take the check to our bank, cash it, and then wire it to their fake moving company. Well we did what they asked because we felt sorry for this person due to their disability and just wanted to help her. The money was wired Western Union as per their request. They would pay the WU fee and for the rug (which was only $150.00). We cashed the check and wired the money. It was about 24 hrs later when we realized that this was a total scam! We received another email from the same person (Jessica Spencer) [protected]@yahoo.com asking us if we would please help her buy a car, her bank accidentally cut the check to us, and she wanted us to wire the money to the seller so she would not sell the car to someone else. At that point we emailed them back and said no, to stop payment on the check because we would not do it.
Since then, we have had to cover ALL of the lost money ($2, 450.00) + some, and have been to our bank, the police, called Western Union, and filing complaints wherever we can. Please do not fall for this scam. These people are terrible and pray on kind and innocent people. Thank you for allowing me to write about our situation. My hope is that if we get the word out, these people will be arrested for their crimes.

This is a list of the scammers off of craigslist that tried to send me bogus checks this month
I saw on craigslist an offer for a 2003 toyota corolla S for 2497$ do i contacted the seller and he told me...
Craigslist has deleted nine of my consecutive postings under their services section even though I provide a...
My client located in London, England, whom I'd secured through a Craigslist.com posting, agreed to forward payment for services to me via USPS. Craigslist.com served as an agent to transfer his London currency to USD & sent a cashier's check payable to me in the amount of$3400 USD. After depositing the check, my financial institution advised me the check was a fraud (confirmed via their investigative services). Meanwhile, I have over 10 NSF fees to my personal account (which drained my account) & no funds to eat this month!
