I am the victim of ad abuse.

I got scammed by an automobile repair outfit here in Denver Colorado. A guy named Ray did a terrible job on my vehicle. He then stood me up on the day he was suppose to fix it.

I am trying to advertising my boat but anytime I advertising after few minutes it's get red flag and I reported more than 10 times but no one answered or fixed the problem. I did follow all rules and

When I advertising a lot of scams sent text and requests send them their own email and sometimes when I ignore them they text bad words and again if I ignore push prohibited button to red flag my ad. I followed all rules and policies and contacted craigslist few times but they didn't do any acts

User's recommendation: They have to answer the phone and find out who is hitting prohibited buttons and red flag ads.

Poor products

I searched for a very common item as "used" and always pulled up 95% of the items were new . Someone on this website doesnt know how to set them up.

User's recommendation: Use a website that is set up by someone that knows english.

Could not navigate site to change email- could no reach human

Tried numerous times to change an incorrect email and password Contacted Craigslist and was sent to automated response. Consequently I was unable to respond to buyers This type of glitch prohibits sellers as wel as buyers. Maybe an easier site navigation would be helpful. Categories are limited as well

An answer on why it was removed And if I have to pay something where does it ask for a payment.

Confusion in categories

When you try to locate certain items, the site shows you everything except the item you were inquiring about. It seems like they are trying to spam you with products that they want to sell.
