listing removal: vita mix 5200 blender onwers - free drawing for sound enclosure

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
-etc...

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.

    you may be having your ad flagged for removal because of using someone elses (ie: vitamixes) trademarked name

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!!

    It is not Craigslist's fault. They are constantly saying to only buy locally. Never trust anyone that you can not meet with in person.

    Craigslist is the cyberghetto. I don't shop at the ghetto in my State so I guess it doesn't make sense for me to shop at an online ghetto either. I have a problem with the fact that craigslist enters into the online community through public means but dodges moral and ethical responsibility via the private sector umbrella. It's a difficult concept for me to get through my head, all the public vs. private internet laws but someday I'll get it and when I do, websites like craigslist will only exist in a "private" cyber world.

scam and rip off

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 noticed identical personal postings in Craiglist throughout various cities. In fact, I have found three different postings in various US cities. I notified CL and gave my phone number so I could give the specifics to CL. Instead, I am finding CL themselves are playing games with me. Sending me canned responses like their terms and conditions and saying I am the one overpostings. The problem is an individual can not overpost yet somehow some individuals can. I suspect it is CL themselves for some unknown reason and now they are trying to scare me. They have picked the wrong person to try to scare. Today they suspended my account saying I was overposting which again is impossible unless you are CL or have some type of software that allows this. I gave them two days to repond to my latest message or I will declare war and take this complaint as high as I can.

  • Beware of AAA Discount Movers in Houston, TX. You will get robbed but they can actually get away with it. They quoted me a fair price and said it was a flat rate and no hidden fees. They make you sign some papers, but please read the fine prints before signing anything. I was too trusting and gave them the benefit of the doubt. A $300 quote cost me $3, ooo. When it was time to unload, they wanted their money upfront before unloading and demanded $3, 000. I argued with them, because I thought I signed an agreement to pay $300. They took out the papers that I had signed earlier. I was about to die. I didn't have the cash to pay them. Cops were called but couldn't do anything because the agreement was binding. They refused to provide identification so I can use for future references. As a result, I forked over $1, 000 and had to give them my brand new 46' Sony lcd + my laptop as payment for the balance. I was robbed! These guys are crooks! They drive a white truck, kind of like a u-haul with no company logo on the car. There are 4 men. Most movers have their logo on the truck. I should have known! Anyone looking for movers, please do not go on Craigslist. They're theives. I 've learn a very hard and painful lesson.

    I had the same experience with these same rogues. They quoted a very low price over the phone (never believe movers who quote on the phone) and then charged me 10 times over.
    They made me sign papers which I trusted and in the end quoted over $1000 and paid them in hard cash. They were the same AAA movers who came in the same white truck with no logo

    [email protected] you are a idiot. both those e-mails are obviously scams via too much personal info and unrealistic shipping offers. truth is there are plenty of legitimate people in rural areas who have a hard time finding local deals and will pay a few extra for shipping. your certainty that every offer involving shipping is 100% a scam is ignorance, and your ###ing over honest people trying to save some money by spreading your inaccurate opinion. i have got sellers to ship out of state before using paypal and it was a smooth transaction, so to any seller reading this if you get obvious scam offers like the example used delete them, no harm no foul. but if you get an offer that sounds legitimate but asks you to ship take a little time to get to know whos offering before you use this persons advice to discredit them. talk to them on the phone, see if they have a myspace, facebook, ect., cross reference info, its not nearly as time consuming as you think and if they arent legit you will find out pretty quickly. SO USE GOOD DISCRETION AND RESERVE SOME JUDGEMENT THERE ARE HONEST PEOPLE OUT THERE!

    my name is Andrew Dove and their is a scam currently running on craigs list automobile service. I was taken for 1500$ by someone calling himself luis peterson in london england . he shows you a photo of the car then he sends you to

    Hello Mr. Andrew,

    Right now i will forward your full name and address to eBay.
    I will initiate the transaction through Ebay and they will contact you with all necesary information about this transaction (terms, buyer protection, payment instructions, invoice, etc.)


    Thanks,
    Luis
    Hello Andrew R. Dove,

    Please tell us if You received the invoice for your transaction. Once we will receive the fax from you with the payment details as explained above, we will instruct the seller to start the shipping process. We will hold the payment until you send us your confirmation that you are satisfied with the item received. As soon we have your confirmation we will release the payment to the seller. You will receive further details regarding the shipping process (courier information, tracking method, expected delivery date) after the payment confirmation.
    *NOTE: It may occur that your e-mail doesn't support HTML language and that is why you haven't received the invoice from us. Please check your bulk/junk/spam/ messages, the invoice may end there because of increased filters of the e-mails providers.

    Thank you for using eBay.
    Vehicle Purchase Protection Program


    I've received a letter from eBay that they have sent you the invoice for the car.
    Just wanted to be sure, that you received it and if you understood how to make the payment, and how to confirm it.
    I have one request for you when you are going to make the payment. Please inform the Western Union agent that you are sending the money to a relative or a friend of yours in London, United Kingdom cause otherwise when i will receive my payment i have to pay 15% from the amount to the state here. I really appreciate if you can do this for me. It will help me a lot.


    Thank you and look forward to doing business with you.

    Hello,

    You have to know that the 1994 Lexus ES300 I am selling is 100% working and great looking, no flaws or dents, no scratches or any kind of damage. The title is clear. It has 96, 860 miles, automatic transmission, leather and many options. This vehicle engine runs very very smooth. No electrical problems on this beauty. This detailed vehicle makes the exterior look like it just came off the assembly line. As I know that my current situation is pretty special I want the deal closed only through eBay's Buyer Protection Program in order for you to be 100% protected. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and inspect it (for 10 days) eBay will release the payment to me; in this way we are both protected. Anyway i am sure that if you won`t be satisfied with the car i will surely find another buyer in your area and there will be no need for you to ship the car back. I am located in London, United Kingdom and I was sent here to improve the military relationships between our country and United Kingdom. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States because we are unable to register this car here because i would have to pay very high import/custom taxes. My final price on it is $ 1500. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. You will receive the car in about 4 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the transaction payment and shipping details from them.

    Thank you and have a nice day,
    Luis Peterson

craigslit

I live in Missouri. Craigslist here is loaded with nuthing but crap. I gave up using them as a job source...

Resolved fraud and cheating

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.

Resolved for sale / vehicle

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

scam and overpayment fake checks

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.

    They tried that with me, but as soon as they said that the secretary "accidentally overpaid" me (I was selling for $200, they sent me $3, 000 fake check and asked me to hurry and deposit and wire them the extra via WU) I knew i was on to a scam.

    the scammer was on gmail so got into my contact list and was telling me how "he" "trusted me" that i would make good and send him the overpayment for his daughter who needed the money for her school needs. HAHAHA He thinks he's gonna trick me with my own honesty? I don't think so...

    so i told him that i will just return the $3, 000 check to him and he can just send me another check for the correct $200 amount, and i need his mailing address. :)

    he said no, do not worry about that, just hurry and deposit the fake check and quickly wire him the money. he gave me an address and WU #. So i looked up the address and told him this address did not exist. he said that uh, his "shipper' gave him that WU address, not to worry about it, just wire it to the account #.

    I would just love to break his/her neck! the whole lot of 'em. May they all perish in the lowest pits of hades.

    also the "person's" name is not jessica spencer. they are nigerians who are using "american-sounding" names and typically use yahoo.com, gmail.com etc since those are free accounts and they can open them quickly.

    as long as they get the victim to wire money western union, they get off scott free bc you cannot track these things.

    I would like to add another peson as a scammer on craigslist. Dayton Lanphear of Sisters Oregon his e-mail is [email protected] I purchased a used Stihl rototiller from him that I found out had a worn out gearbox. After trying to contact him by email and receiving no response I had to call him. He nervously "skirted" the issue and lied about the whole problem. As a business owner I am shocked that he would treat people this way. Do not trust this man!! He will rip you off!! People like him are a bad example of a human being!! He has a wood sculpting business that he alone operates.

Fraudulent cashier check issued

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!
