Not at all

Original review posted by user Oct 07, 2021
I was unable to get any interaction going with Craigslist. When you call they just tell you to use their website to report.

User's recommendation: When searching Craigslist posts, don't flag posts just because your idea of "small" and their's are different.

I was scammed on Craigslist by two landlords after I wire transferred money to them and had a signed lease agreement. As soon as the wire transfer was transmitted and deposited into their account they went missing. I am left homeless with few options to find here in Austin. Craigslist has failed me utterly in even contacting me about this situation. Epic fail and I plan on pursuing my legal options

User's recommendation: Don’t use Craigslist.

Trouble posting

I cant.post on your site! Craigslist won't allow me to reset my password! Make tech support readily available with a live person

User's recommendation: Answer the phone ! Make tech support with a LIVE PERSON an easy thing to do and not a complicated maze of ***.

Its b.s. that they constantly pull your post without telling you the reason so you can fix it?

i have put up several legit posts in which they were flagged and taken down immediately. they don't give you a reason, nor do you ever get to talk to a real live person when you try to call. ultimately its just as bad as facebook.

User's recommendation: good luck in keeping your posts up.

Fraudulant activity

I Recently put a Keyboard on Craigslist for Sales. After being contacted about the purchase of my Keyboard. They sent me Cashier's check which came to my place of residence. I was asking for cash upon the buyer coming to my house. Instead a FedEx was sent to me. In the envelope I found a Cashier's check for $3300. This is probably counterfeit. I will not attempt to cash it. I will bring it to the local police department. Do you want a copy? Sincerely, Richard Goff

I paid for several COMPLIANT hiring ads and they were flagged

Craigslist - I paid for several COMPLIANT hiring ads and they were flagged
Craigslist - I paid for several COMPLIANT hiring ads and they were flagged
Craigslist removed 5 hiring ads after they were paid for, 2 minutes after posing the final one. $28 isn't much but that's food on the table for my kids or one of my employees kids. It's not right to not warn, or refund an ad that was compliant but to keep the money? That is outright stealing. Still have received no response from CL. I am looking into talking to an attorney, it's not about the $28. If nobody does anything then they are free to continue stealing hard earned money. I'll be talking with my attorney Wednesday, we do business in California anyway.

User's recommendation: Be careful paying for ads, you get no warning, post 1 too many and all of your ads are gone. As well as the money you spent.

No staff help only a toxic "help" forum

Craigslist - No staff help only a toxic "help" forum
A simple post to rehome an over limit puppy. Post was removed, but no way to verify why. It is not for sale there is 35 dollar delivery fee if the responding person wants me to come to them in city that is 60 mi rt Rehoming fees are stated specifically allowed, no prohibition I can find. Wanted info if there is non-public TOU or what delivery fits under? Being attacked and harassed for daring to ask (potentially)35 for puppy I've spent 250 on for first adopt out and more since return CL has become garbage since I was last active can't get out of tech error loop to post again, correct post seems

User's recommendation: Use any other classifieds service and starve them out.

They will not let me post

Have not heard a word back from them, I don't think Craigslist cares. Terrible customer service. Terrible terrible terrible customer service. That could have at least gave me a reason why they wouldn't let me post.

Flagging abuse

I had an ad about puppies that I were re-homing. One day, I got a text about shipping a puppy which I wasn't about to do. I also told the person they would have to visit before the puppy left my home. I needed to know who the parents were before sending them off. After that, my ad was constantly flagged. I wrote a complaint to Craigslist and nothing. happened.

User's recommendation: Be careful who you talk to.

I got a text that said my post had been flagged as a scam. There were no other comments as to why or what about it made it look like a scam. Then I hit the button to get more information and I was hit with a $0.10 bill to reactivate it I want to know why.
