    Your company needs to get a handle on the wanted sections of you listings. Normally out of 50 listings 2/3 or more are for sale ads. It is difficult to go to this section and find nothing but for sale ads !!!!!

  • Guest mmhmm says:

    Your administrator in Van BC is an a$$h0le. Rude, condescending, and judgemental.
    I used to enjoy this site, and use it frequently. Administration is sorely lacking, and frankly, NO ONE needs to berated, or spoken to in the manner this admin did. Also not the first time. It’s been going downhill for a few years and I was hoping it would improve, but it just keeps getting worse. Deleting my account, you can do the same with ALL of my information. Thanks.

  • Jonathan Brown says:

    All of my posting history has been erased on my account

    Why have all of my posting been erased

    Can I get them back??

  • Terri Haney says:

    My 10 year old Google Voice Number will no longer verify with your service. It has for the last 10 years, but suddenly now it wont. It will verify with my banks and payment apps, you are not that important so what’s the problem? The banks just came on board with this technology, it used to be I couldn’t get texts from them, so you are going backwards. Now I can’t use your advertising service because you are discriminating against people who can’t afford conventional phone service!

    Remove all privacy violating craigslist rideshare software. You are viciously violating
    Users personal online privacy by forcing people to establish accounts and give phone numbers so you can track, monitor and record users personal travel experiences. Remove also the “captcha” protocols that are
    An extra, unnecessary online step used to illegally record one,s ip address and other user information.
    Captcha is illegal google/nsa software designed to illegaly spy on and surveil users without
    Their knowledge, permission or consent.

    Cease and Desist from your Crimes craigslist.

    Your fascist police state spy and surveillance activities are in direct violation of the 4th amendment of
    The US Constitution that guarantees all
    American citizens the right to personal privacy and the right to be free from all illegal and unwarranted searches and seizures of personal travel activity and records.

    This is America, not communist china.

    As it now stands, you have crossed the line. By definition, the US Constitution and the US Bill of Rights
    Are still the defacto laws of the land (as much as you hate it). You will restore online privacy to your users and fix the rideshare system you have recklessly destroyed or san francisco and state of california are going down. Fires, an economic collapse, a devastating earthquake, a nuclear strike etc…whatever form it takes,
    You will be held accountable for your Crimes and Punished if you do not turn from your wicked ways
    And learn to uphold and defend the right to personal online privacy.

    Be utterly forewarned, through the power, force and authority of cosmic evolutionary restorative equilibrium, balance and correction, your lawless activities cannot and will NOT be tolerated in my home state.

    To the raging inferno of eternal Hell-Fire you will all be cast at the Judgement.

    Don,t use fascist spy and surveillance police state craigslist people.
    They are viciously vioating users online privacy by forcing users to establish nsa based
    Travel itinerary accounts in addition to forcing users to give phone numbers.
    They are also illegally forcing users to use the illegal google/nsa software known
    As “captcha” which records a users ip address, location and other private user information for the nsa. They have installed massive amounts of spy and surveillance
    Software on their website which is why it takes 10-15 seconds for a page to download.

    This will be the last year i use rideshare. They have destroyed the ride board as a result. It was a fine operation for the 25 years i have used it, but its gone now.
    CL has now gone fascist, nazi, nsa, spy and surveillance police state.

    As far as i,m concerned, these fascist police state pigs need to be arrested, prosecuted and sent to jail for viciously violating our 4th amendment right to privacy
    And for trampling on our precious civil liberties.

    This is america, not communist china.

      Yes, I am a relative of a VERY powerful CIA executive, and a whistleblower. They of course keep taking my ads of. They also did not like my DONALD TRUMP NAZI ad. In fact, it is my files and others that Donny stole……THIS IS NOT CHINA, it is NAZI GERMANY, and will soon get worse, as they are planning a CIVIL WAR. The CIA brought these NAZI monsters here under operation PAPERCLIP. Also, my grandfather was one of the developers of MKULTRA, the program to brainwash people in going off and killing people.

    I put a Craigslist advertisement on computer gigs with the title Save the Ukraine which seeks to stop the Putin attack. It asks for website developer in Toronto computer gigs.
    Some Craigslist list bastard remove my advertisement which was a paid advertisement. I didn’t even get a refund. They just stole my money and removed a very good advertisement. If I don’t have a positive reply I will take legal action against Craigslist.

  • Debbie says:

    You flag me for trying to rehome a dog, but you don’t flag breeders! Also it’s easy for someone to flag a post unfairly! Please contact me.

  • Debbie says:

    You keep flagging people that are rehoming pets, yet you don’t flag breeders! Also, anyone can flag you for no reason! I need you to contact me because I keep getting flagged to “rehome” a dog

  • Mike Livermore says:

    I have paid $10.00 for the same for sale by owner ad and I cannot find it anywhere. I’m not very tech savvy but I thought this was supposed to be easy. Can you find my ad for a 1940 ford deluxe coupe and repost it or do I have to pay another $5.00.

  • Dean says:

    I turned to Craigslist searching for an apartment rental. What I got was scammed out of $2400. I can not believe Craigslist is not doing more to ensure this is not happening… completely unbelievable!

  • Steve Kelsey says:

    I have been buying and selling on CL from day 1. This is my bitch…
    When I am looking to buy a boat, for example, I go to the boat section and I find everything on that page but boats. It pisses me off to know end!!! These jack offs that advertise cars or tools or whatever on a boat site should be 86d from the site. You would find that you would have a lot more business. People get tired and frustrated by these dumb asses that don’t post in the proper place. I finally had to say something. Other than that…. thanx!

  • Don says:

    I am sick an tired of people place the same ad like 6 or 8 times in a row it is a pain to have to scroll through them , I wouldn’t buy from them if it was the last one on earth 🌎.

  • Jackie says:

    Thank you for contacting me confirming your interest in my house. My house is available for rent and move in as soon as possible,Pets are allowed as long as they are not destructive. I relocated from my home 2months ago to GEORGIA when I got a job promotion out of state. I wanted to sell it out but due to some factor about the Realtor I was working with before I decided not to sell it again, the agents are not truthful about handling things and I am looking to handle things myself now and I’m giving the rent out low because I just need someone to help take care of the house while I’m away, It’s not about the money. It’s about finding someone that will take care of the house like they own it as I plan on staying here for a while. My house is on 484 McNeece St, Tupelo, MS 38804 and it is available for rent at $650/Per Month *Covering all Utilities* listed as follows: Heating,
    Electricity,Water,refrigerator except trash. There is also a REFUNDABLE Security Deposit of $850 set aside for damages/commitment . As I am already out of state, you can go by to view the outside and neighborhood of the house and view the inside of the house through the window, if you like it, you get back to me so we can proceed with the rentals process. Thanks for your time .. found this property on Craigslist .am sorry for the late response, I have busy due to my new promotion. We can proceed with the renting process since you already drive by and like what you are renting . Kindly send me the following informations to get the lease agreement ready for signing;

    Tenants Full Name:
    Current Address: to mail the keys and receipts
    Move in date :
    Current Job:

    Note . I won’t be accepting any payment until we both sign the lease agreement.
    These people are stealing properties from realtors website and posting them on Craigslist as if they own these houses.

    • Phil says:

      Hello Jackie,
      I moved from Tennessee to take a job in Los Angeles. I wish to return to the area, but I have had nothing but scammers and and aggressive gay men contact me. I would be interested in speaking further.

  • Rae says:

    If Craigslist is so successful, why are you not getting your act together? If this is true-As of the year 2016, the total revenue generated by the company is more than $694 million-then why not use some of those dollars to add support for your website and emails to you? No response to emails, the forums are inundated with garbage! One can not find a decent response in them. I have read other reviews (mostly bad) about your company but I do not see anything being responded to for those who are genuinely upset by this website. Don’t you care? Or have you made your money so to heck with everything else?! Yes, I understand one can use the site for free, but does that mean one has to abide by ill management-does it?

  • Rae says:

    The site has been fairly good for me with my placing of items to sell. The problem I have is there is no support when one has a question. I emailed them but no response whatsoever. Their site suggests going to the forums-forget that as there are hundreds of discussions there-try to find the answer for what you are looking for. It would take forever! They really need staff to clean that up and respond to emails.

    Fucking cockers keep flagging my ad i will take legal action against you mother fukers

  • fuck you says:

    this company invites criminal activity and its time to put an end to craigs list. No craigs list allowed in my community.. no customer support.. your company fucking sucks ass.. fuck you..

  • William says:

    To CEO: Jim Buckmaster & CFO: Craig Newmark . I like to thank your company for all that they do. But there has been a few changes made that has made the site very unwanted and is hurting a lot of people. As for me , it makes my job helping people that is less fortunate to do the things they need for them selves with there automobile . I a mechanic use the ( auto parts ) and the ( cars & trucks ) for my area here in the Hampton Roads / Norfolk to Richmond Virginia . The changes are ( email a friend ) and just recently the drag down (city ) . I would be very nice to see these 2 things put back . Please Mr. Buckmaster & Mr. Newmark , you should read some of the reforms post on your site . Some times things that look good on paper or a good idea is not always the best for the company. I am a former Army Ranger and love to help people just as I do for all the members of my church . The harder something is to use the less people will use the site then the company goes down the hill and gets a lot of bad reviews and publicity. Then out of Business !! I have read some of the post in your form response and not very good . Thank you and God Bless You All !! William

  • Cheryl Chapman says:

    I am trying to get a hold of there office. So I can go back to an add I bought a car off of Craigslist. Which said it had only 140.0000 miles on it. However I can not smog it. Because it’s off by 100.0000 miles. The person put the milage back. So I wasted 4500 dollars on a car I can do nothing with. Need to get a hold of someone at Craigslist so I can get a copy of that add. To be able to do something about it.

  • Marisa P. says:

    What to do when possible buyers are no shows after getting mg address, name and cell number. This is happening more often than I would like to admit with several posts I placed on Craigslist.
    Kindly respond to my concerns .
    Thank you!

  • Gary Hatch says:

    Hi, just want to voice a complaint: I am a photographer and as such, posted an ad looking for models for tfp shoots on the activities section here in Milwaukee, Wi only to receive a notice it had been pulled by CL. I find it pretty disingenuous that you pulled my post yet allow ppl to post ads that solicit sex thru their ads. At least mine was honest and legitimate. I would appreciate your response, please.

  • JP says:

    This company actively allows SCAM postings and does NOTHING to prevent abusing and fraudulent postings. They are unresponsive and practically encourage scam postings. SIMPLE STEPS COULD BE TAKEN! What a horrible company and they should be held liable for such neglect.

  • Steven says:

    All the ads in the community or service sections are basically sexual favor ads. You try to post a normal dating ad and it gets flagged. Craigslist doesn’t care. Their ads pay based on the number of pages viewed so the more sex ads the more view and the more money. They say no sexual or explicit content in the rules but yet that’s the only type of ads they keep. Everything else gets flagged.

  • Victim Advocate says:

    ‘The company also allows its users to have discussions on the Craigslist forums too.’

    But, the moderator(s) for some Minnesota and Wisconsin areas do not. More than once I’ve had a posting removed within less than 5 mins. So I post it in another area and it stays posted. How can the exact posting violate rules in one area but not in another? Why don’t they tell you what rule you violated? Guilty until proven innocent and never proven innocent because you don’t know what you are charged with. Also, they no longer even let you know by email when they remove your posting, the public has to let you know.

    Dogs re-homed for $650, multiple same listings in an order on the same day in the same area, items not in their correct category, and numerous, disgusting ads for sex are allowed.

    Will craigslist go down like Backpage?

  • Ag says:

    Those web like craig are run by gov agents provocateurs. This web is corrupt to the core. My best advice to normal people..stay away from this freaks

  • Vanessa says:

    Hi There, I am writing from Mexico City, there is a very annoying ad and looking for your support, so that these kind of advertisements of a supposed North American doctor, has published almost 15 advertisements (ADMINISTRATION SECTION) seeking to exchange money for sexual relations with young women. I consider that you guy should be more careful with a protocol what type of ads are published.

  • Sonja says:

    There is a guy and some girls on Rideshare in Wichita kansas that are trying to run a escort service. No body else that usually post can keep a post up. On forms the guy calls himself ryansgirls. I dont care what the posts say i know they are. Go check it out. If this don’t get straightened out the regular drivers will lose their jobs n everything. Im 65. Yrs old n im not competition.

  • TED ANDERSON says:

    I keep getting flagged and removed by someone in your office in Ocala Florida.
    Even if I copy an exact post word for word and only change the location they will not even post anything for me. I went to a lawyer a while back and they stopped even though we had not filed yet. But now they are right back at it. This discrimination at it’s fullest. Does craigslist approve of discrimination???????

  • Larry Houart says:

    everything I post is getting flagged and removed, I have sent several request and post ID but I never receive an answer why it was flagged and removed. My last post had a title of Hello Everyone, and said Hello everyone any nice ladies around post id: 7155332723. can some please tell me why this was removed.

  • Bill Niccum says:

    The downfall of Craigslist will be directly related to their apparent inability to manage the numerous scams allowed to be posted and remain posted

  • Clint says:

    Hello, I am wondering how I can see the cars and trucks by owner ads on craigslist right as they are posted, which would be 1 minute or less, instead of waiting the 7 to 8 minutes gap that Craigslist makes you wait to see the most newest ads being posted by owner. I will pay $1,000 for this if it is possible. There is a guy in San Francisco bay area that is already doing this and put up an ad for someone to purchase it for $2500. That seemed like too much money to me. Please let me know, thanks, 916-305-0299. I assume this is a program that can be downloaded on to a smart phone.

    Craigslist needs to reboot its sight. You are looking for chain saws and there shouldn’t be cars, trucks, trailers, and repurposed material on the listing. There should be a tighter boundary on category’s. Sellers shouldn’t be able to post on all.
