Craigslist - Warm & Toasty Firewood - Complain
Asked Craigslist to remove a scammer from their site. Trying to warn others to avoid fraud from this provider of firewood, before dumping he ask for payment and after dropping it, it turned out to be chunks of swamp wood. I'm one of the victims who paid cash for wood...

Steve repaired and sold cars in Dover for years, need I say more. He's definitely driven to do almost anything for money.

Unfortunate about the wood but I'm not surprised.

He was selling a truck which was priced on the high end and unwilling to negotiate even though there were noticeable issues which he had seeming answers for. He's a likable guy which is superficial and definitely a wheeler dealer.

I have been seeing a lot of fraud posting and scams as well. Has anyone been able to discern which actually works and which ones are frauds?

I am receiving a lot and am in need of actually finding a job. 770-826-****!

I had a post about room rentals on Craigslist recently. It showed up flagged for removal. Not wanting that kind of bad image because a flagged post can come across as derogatory about the poster, I went into the linked post edit/delete area which was sent to my email...

Craigslist covering up/allowing/supporting Intentional deletions of ads by competitors

This has been going on for years. Craigslist know all about it. But if you complain about it on their massively abusive flagging support forum you are driven away by their " Volunteer Moderators " who will mock , berate and jeer at you until you give up and go away forever. Just go take a peek in there for 5 minutes and see for yourself. I have never had a single question answered directly about ANYTHING. Never seen one either. It just seems like a great place for depleted people to abuse people... It IS easy after-all.. since Craigslist conveniently HAS no actual detailed rules on what is or is not allowed they can play with you all day long and never solve your problem ...ever. I guess it is too hard to spend 20 minutes outlining your rules clearly? That said ... When I go to the section that I used to post in I see one or two companies posting 20 to 30 ads a day and not even trying to cover it up... I told the support people and they completely ignored that comment. I then told them that ALL of my ads that had been running flawlessly for YEARS were suddenly getting flagged off every time I posted them... I ALSO told them that I know very well that there is a very well known method on how to do this that any crooked person can find on the internet and use against their competitors. The mocked me and seriously pretended that it was impossible. I was told that the system is AUTOMATIC so I asked ok , then what is it about my ads that have run fine for YEARS that suddenly against the rules.. just tell me and I will change it right away.......... CRICKETS! I ask what can I do to remedy this..what rule am I breaking? CRICKETS.. then I am FLAMED by these people.. VOTED BEST BY WHO?? It is in my ad and in fact for 3 of the past 5 years we have been voted best by our local commerce dept.. btw it is printed right there on the plaque you can see in the photo. Again I ask.. So your Automatic system has a problem with our BEST ratings? CRICKETS... From then on I am just FLAMED , Mocked , and berated until I sign off and give up as so many more before me had. I then go back to our category .. I see HUNDREDS of ads by this company HUNDREDS and it seems ONLY them. Again ask CL.. Why is this guy allowed to post 100s of ads and you do nothing about it? Answer FLAG HIM THEN! So I guess I will have to hire a full time flagger to use their service? As a side note I Also asked Do you give your " Automated system" weekends and Holidays off?? Does your "Automated" system have Union support? Of course they do not respond so I ask my last question that to this date still has not been answered. They WHY are my ads only deleted during BUSINESS HOURS 8-5 Monday thru Friday like CLOCKWORK??? Craigslist is a scam.. This isnt just happening in services.. I have heard and read stories of it happening in MANY different categories of this so called service. Try to sell a really fancy bike at a low price and the ad disappears from a section flooded by the local cycle shop? I could go on all day.. It's EASY to know the truth GOOGLE it.. you will never have enough time to read all of the complaints written by good Honest people being knowingly abused. Get the word out.... This isn't by accident but by design. And Craigslist could care less.

Stop allowing competitors to break all of their rules. Flag off honest and good ads , fix their abusice so called flag support forum full of abusive trolls, LIST THE ACTUAL RULES AND REQUIREMENTS for Ads so we have PROOF that we are in compliance.

Craigslist Advertisement Review from Lewiston, Idaho

Craigslist personals are a joke. Craigslist leaves up all the ads from bots or the ads with *** pics" but delete the actual ads from actual people. I tried to write them but they never respond. I even post stuff for sale and it gets deleted. I cant sell appliances but ppl need to suffer thru all the fake pics? Give me a break! (Not that i would ever find my soulmate on CL, but it used to be more fun to browse)

My name is Nick Rue , I'm so mad at Cregslist right now, I posted an honest ad on Cregslist saying I'm athletic, sportsy and love competition. So I post the ad and long and be hold, it gets blocked ( figures) if you are going to start a company at least hire employees with good intentions, not scammers who only care about only money! I'm done with Cregslist.

Sorry but your money is gone, never wire anything, use pay-pal or credit card and you can dispute the charges. Next time your looking to rent for vacation use VRBO.com I use it when we go on vacation in Florida, they always are spot on and they have reviews on property's and the owners and they have locations all over the us and world.
