Hope i can trust you with the overpayment and this will be done in good faith. Your Honesty and transparency will be appreciated. It will take few days for payment to get to you.
Kindly reply with your details on where the Payment should be send to. I will let you know how i intend to pick it up. As soon as you have your money in hand we can talk about the pickingup of the item ok. I would like you to take the posting off craigslist today. Thanks and have a Blessed Day. Hello, How are you doing,i hope you are fine and alright.
I have been busy myself but doing great. There is something i think i must bring to your notice. After a reconciliation of my account,i discovered that somehow my partner must have over paid you.
The payment that was meant for another transaction was sent to you and the one meant for you was sent to another,however i want to believe i wont have a problem with you. Please once you receive your payment,i will like you to deduct your money and send the remaining via western union to the manager of the shipping company that will help me with the pickup. I will provide the info you need to complete the western union transfer once you receive payment.
Thanks once again for your understanding. I got in touch with the moving company concerning pickup and they told me to get words with you as to know when you will be available for them to effect pickup after they have receive their fund. They gave me their information that will enable the fund gets to them via Western Union in cash and below is the information of the Account Manager where you will send the funds to after you have received the payment.
After making the payment,you will have to send me the following information about the transfer so that i can forward it to them. You will have to go to any Western Union location and send the remaining balance to the shippers information in cash. I was saling a coffee table, he is sending me a money order but also said he sent the wrong amout. It should be here by monday. I was desperate to sell the item and really needed the money.
Waited a day, bank said the check seemed to be ok….. I hope these assholes get caught someday! We were scamed for dolars on a 4 wheeler! The guy had us western union the money to him claiming he was a women!
The deal was to good to be true but we were blinded by it! Guess lesson learned just very frustrating! Then they told me to be ready to work-online-at 8 am on Monday morning. This started to seem fishy to me, and I checked out the company name. It was a legitimate company, legitimate website and all. I should have guessed that an interview over Yahoo messenger was sketchy, but like I said, I was desperate for a job.
When I logged in at 8 am, to supposedly learn the new program I waited for a response for forty five minutes-totally professional, right? At this point I figured out that this was a scam, and I felt absolutely sick. I am not a stupid person, I just needed a job. I was very fortunate not to have lost more or been evicted, but shame on them! Using dire circumstances to fleece people out of their hard earned money. I wish their was more I could do to help prevent people from the same-or worse-situation.
After the check has been cashed as i have other properties to move alongside. Kindly get back your full name, and address including your cell and land number so i can make out the payment.
I was wondering about scams going the other way? I responded to an ad, and whoever wrote back said they were worried about trusting people on CL and wanted to verify who I was, which required me to enter my phone number on a website CLsafteycheck.
Yep, that sounds like a scam too. I have received several requests like this on my ad. Only thing I can figure is if I respond with a number they now have my e: They have my phone number and by reverse lookup, my address as well.
Best bet is to refer them back to the ad. They said that they were a professor, and gave me a story about their background and education. Then when I said that I would take the apartment, it turned out that they wanted me to deposit money through an ebay account, and it would go straight to them, and then the keys would get sent over.
The apartment was basically a too good to be true price for the neighborhood that they said it was located in, but just to be sure I went to the address that they had given, and it was a very nice apartment building. I asked the doorman if there were any residents living overseas who had put an ad out on CL to sublet their apartment, and the doorman told me that it was a scam, and they had been doing it many times. He even told me the name of the person and their email address, before I was able to tell him it.
I knew the apt was too good to be true, but I cant believe that this scam has happened before, and I hope that no one has ever fallen for it!! I have the thing I was looking for a house to rent and they said they just went to Africa for a mission and want somebody to take care of their house for 4yrs they want me to sent the deposit by western union and they will sent me the key by fed ex I went by the and there is people unloading stuff to move in and I knew it was a scam.
Thanks for your reply. If you really want to pull off a successful scam, you might want to change things up a bit when you send out your email responses!
The scammers I dealt with are: Thanks for the prompt response to my mail. I will be buying from you so please kindly withdraw the advert from C. Please be informed that i will be paying with a certified check from my Bank.
I will need the following details to mail the payment as soon as possible. I am completely satisfied with the advert and the payment will be delivered within working days. I wish I knew who to report this to. CL seems primarily interested in scam postings, not scam buyers. I just got that very same email! I thought something was fishy so researched and found all this. I emailed her and told her i would be tearing up her check as soon as it arrived. I feel so silly that I got pulled that far into it, but I am so glad I found this before I cashed anything!
This website is a lifesaver! Hello, thanks for getting back to me. Am sorry i will not be able to come and check the item again as i promised. My Dad is very sick. Am still very interested in the item. Please kindly withdraw the advert from C. I will need the following details to mail the payment as soon as possible…. I will make arrangements for the pick up as soon as you have your money..
B UPS does not deliver to a P. I listed a new top-quality backpack for half of what I paid for it. The first week I got 4 replies. We are trying to sell our couch and received wellllll over what we initially asked for. Check out the e-mail below. We received the check, but we are turning it into the police asap. Please act accordingly as agreed after deducting your money for the item, make the rest fund available to the movers via Western Union at any grocery store or any of their outlets near you and write back with the western union details below as it is on the receipt so i can forward to them as confirmation of payment prior to the pick up and they can schedule for it at your location ….
I called the person I was dealing with and told her I had found out it was a scam, she insisted and began telling me how sad she was for me rejecting the offer! I let go of it and after a while she stoped calling me. I am selling a tv and have a person in uk that wants to purchase and pay the high shipping. He wants me to send a payment request to him through paypal to pay me.
Sounds fishy, but what could I lose by letting him pay me through paypal? This is what I received this afternoon…. We just got hit by a scammer trying to sell a Sofa on Craigslist very similar to other emails.
How are you doing today? The check has been delivered via Fedex,Thanks for your honesty towards this transaction so far. Well, the overpayment is meant to cover the cost of shipment for the item alongside my other properties including tax and insurance plus the movers and agent fees. Please deposit the check today so that it clears tomorrow after the check has cleared,All you have to do is go the bank and have the rest of the money withdrawn in cash and have it sent to the movers via money gram.
Do let me know your schedule for the week regarding pickup as i have some other properties to be moved alongside the item. Please do act accordingly as agreed after deducting your money for the item, make the rest fund available to the movers via money gram Money Transfer at any of their outlet around you or check on http: I just posted some furniture and received inquiries from this exact person — they used three different emails though then it ended up being at this address.
Well, I fell victim to the scams…not once but twice in fhe same week. Now thanks to the wastes if human life, I am homeless. They even webt as far as to quote scripture…. I have had 2 emails asking for me to call them about the item I listed.
I called and both of them are wrong numbers. I do not understand. If I reply in an email saying that they gave me the wrong number are they able to get more information on me? I just do not get it. I am not sure what they are trying to do, but it is fishy. Starts out- Hello, I have received your email message. My Sister will be coming from Hawaii. She is 36 Years of age. She speaks English fluently. We need you tor elder. And if you dont know hing tow to drive, you will hire a car for her.
So kindly provide me with the requested information below so that we can ensure the housing agent get her an apartment which will be closer to your house. Also we will be paying you the first week wages upfront via a certified check.
I did not include the whole email; too long. First off in the craigslist listing it says Caregiver for elder.
Since when is someone 36 an elder. Also because I do not know how to send resumes through a computer, I was waiting to get someone to help me and because it was already past 24 hours, I decided to write an email saying I would send the resume later. I included my phone and said it was from Hawaii.
They did not ask for my bank info; just name, address, phone , age,and marital status. So I was thinking what could they do with that info. Would they have asked me to cash the certified check and send some money back? I would like to post this on craigslist and say its a scam. Hi, i encountered the same thing,i just got the check yesterday im guessing its a scam too.
How are you doing? My name is David Mayer and my sister Sherill will be coming from Oregon and she will be moving before 10th of next month. We really need someone to take care of her. You must be honest and trust worthy in this Position. Cos that will be an added advantage. You will have to prescribe the convenient hours during each of this days which will not affect your other regular work in case you have one as this will be a part time work for you and if you want to live with her in the house for other assistance there will be no problem.
If you are okay with this job conditions, kindly provide me with the requested information below so that we can ensure that the housing agent get her an apartment which will be more closer to your house and I hope about 6 miles will not be too far for you. Also we will be paying you the first week wages upfront via a Certified Check because you will help her to get some medical tools like one touch basic machine, acu-check machine and test trips in any nearest pharmacy store around.
So I want you to respond back with the following details so that we can ensure you are ready for the work. Full Name as it will appear on the check payment. Mailing Address, NO P. State and Zip Code 5. Age, Sex and marital status. I will give you her living address once the rental agent find her a suitable house.
Thanks so much for responding back with the requested information, i really appreciate it. Also, further details about her health condition will be forwarded to you as soon as we have more detail reports from her Doctor but just be aware that she has diabetis, she walks very slowly and she is pertially impared but could grap things easily when communicating with her and she is a bit okay on her own but needed attention often time.
Maximum of 2 to 3 hours each day will be okay for her. So since i can trust you on taking care of my sister, i believe you can take care of things for her and i believe she is in good hands. I will be sending the information of the rental agent to you upon the confirmation that you have received the check payment, I am entrusting you on this payment that will be coming to you and I will need your full trust along this line because I must ensure of your honesty and full satisfactory of your well being.
Kindly let me know if you are okay with the term and condition for the job and if i can trust you with this. I would also need you to confirm the information below if they are correct to avoid mistakes when sending the check payment to you and ensure that you include your Cell phone number to reach you…. Do not give them your personal info!!!
Received second email stating he would buy it — He was going out of the country but would have an assistant mail me a Cashiers Check or MO and arrange for it to be picked up once the funds had cleared.
He asked for my name, address and phone number. Both emails contain similar text, something like this:. Hello, Thanks for your response in business time,i would have love to call you but due to the schedule of my work,i will need your name and address with your phone number for payment,As am only able to make payment by certified check, because i am on business trips and i will be pleased if you can send me more pictures.
It will take some days for the payment to get to you. As per pick-up, I will make arrangement for the pick-up after payment has been received and cleared in your account. Do reply back with your full name and address in which the payment will be mail to you. Expecting to hear from you soon. I was initially duped as I am new to Craiglist and gave them my address and phone number. After reading websites such as this one, I became convinced this was a scam. I linked them a website showing their operation is a scam and they stopped contacting me.
I am a bit concerned I gave them my contact information. I just got a message from the same email. So far just asking if the item is still available.
It will be interesting to see what is sent next. I think giving your contact info is fine. They are long gone fishing for the next victim. I;m guessing most of what you gave them is available in the phone book anyway. Funny, never heard back from him …. It was word for word as the one you recieved!
I knew it was a scam due to the bad grammer and spaces and gaps in the sentences as if it was a computer generated message! Get back to me with your total cost for the services of 10 Laptops. I will pay you with a certified check.
I await your urgent response so that i can make Moving arrangements and payment as soon as possible…. Nicholas —————————————————————————————————Next email from him I have all the necessary software needed for the service installations…. Thanks —————————————————————————————————Next email from him Subject: Recived your inqury From: Nicholas john Add as Preferred Sender Date: Tue, Feb 28, Thanks for the reply.
I am okay with the price i have all the necessary software needed for the service installations…. I will instruct my secretary to prepare a check for you on your name and address. Do send me your full name and address and your phone number so as to prepare the check and shipping of the laptops to your address.
I am looking forward to hear from you,so we can have payment and shipping asap. Hello, Thank you for your response concerning the Repairs. In order to conclude our arrangement concerning the repairing of the laptops, Like I told you my secretary will have the payment mailed out to you. The payment will be certified Check, More so the shipping fee for the laptops to be delivered back to my place will be added to the payment in which will be certified Check and you will send the rest cash balance to the shipper for the pick up of the computer to your place.
You will receive the payment by this week and get back to me immediately you receive the payment and i will keep you on posted……… plz i will like you to confirm the info again….. I will add the money to ship the laptops both going and back to your money.
I was looking for a job on Craigslist and answered an add for a mystery shopper. I thought it was legit because I have known people that have done this. Then I received an email saying that a fed ex.
I still have the money orders. What would you do with the package? This is what the text message s said;. So i can proceed with the payment as soon as possible. Thanks and hope to hear back from you soon. So kindly sign up at http: Obviously, super fishy, but I have never had a text like that. I got the same exact email. The person said she was in the military and was not able to come and see the item I was selling. I post alot of items on CL. I think for the most part I can spot a scam but, I am as stumped as the few postings above mine.
What exactly is the scam?? Most of the e-mails are from an earthlink account. That one has been being used for a couple of years now. Can that pose a threat to any of my personal information to someone that might have some computer skills? I will continue to use CL as there are still a few good people out there looking for good deals just as I am. Stay on top of the most up-to date scaqm teqniques.
I was a little disapointed when i told her I was at the shipping yard and wanted to see the bike and never got a responce back…… guess she already sold it…….
I did forget to mention to her i lived in Minnasota and have yet to ever step foot in Florida. I actually pass a few moments of lazy fun by baiting morons like these guys. I always use a throw away email and false name. I received an e-mail about the treadmill I am selling. I got the samething everyone else is talking about.
Now what would a casino want with my treadmill. Thanks for your response in business time,i would have love to call you but due to the schedule of my work,i will need your name and address with your phone number for payment,As am only able to make payment by certified check, because i am on business trips and i will be pleased if you can send me more pictures.
None of the postings here actually spell out what the next step in the scam is. Do these nutballs ask for bank routing numbers, or social security numbers? Like I said, just curious as it appears most of us have stopped the scam at the very beginning.
May the forceps be with you! They are wanting to send money to my paypal but the money us in my paypall account! What should I do? I recently posted an ad for a blackbery on craigslist. Knowing money order is guarenteed, I agreed to money order and gave him my address.
When he told me the address he wanted me to send it to it was to Nigeria. My brother told me this was a scam and not to do it. Should I be concerned about giving out this information?? Purchased this name gogo tent from the guy on a Craigslist in Seattle WA. When I met him I handled him a bucks and he gave me the tent.
I didnt ask his name but he has a green jeep and himself is about 6 ft tall. He said that the tent was in good condition. When I brought the tent home it didnt have a pump.
I called the guy and he said that he would bring it once he finds him, however he has never picked up his phone. His number is If you will happen to buy anything from this person please make sure you take your time and check what he sold you. I have been trying to sell a sofa and loveseat on CL and am a little suspicious of some people who are satisfied with the price. But also the fact that both had the exact same: It will be delivered by USPS…. Both people claimed to be deaf. Mike Stone is the name of this one and the other is Julianna Williams.
My real question is this: She has given a lot of quote personal information. Her name is Jade MacFish. I find it ironic that with one ad I have had 3 deaf people. I commented to my husband that there must be some kind of contest for deaf people to furnish their homes as inexpensively as possible. Sorry it was Elizabeth Williams that had the exact same email, not Julianna Williams and the spelling for Jade is actually Mcfish.
I got one from a guy who insisted on being called Breakfast Jack. The only thing I found that was odd is that they texted me at 6: The response I got sounded odd and a little two good to be true. So after google craigslist scams I found there are more people out there claiming to be deaf and not being able to call.
This is the email I got from Amy Diaz. I am willing to wait for the check to clear before the pickup is done. I will be responsible for the pickup and it will be done by my movers,their payment will be included in the check I mail to you. This is all due to me being deaf and It makes it hard to deal with this,Also it will make this transaction better and quicker.
I know you were not expecting this and I would have loved to come for the viewing but I cant. I really want this and am offering an extra 50 for you to delete the Ad and reserve it for me, Am settling into my new house and looking for good furniture deals to furnish my place with.
I replied with a few questions and specifically said I would give out my information until she answered my questions. It came internally through CL, and asked that I use the gmail account.
I repliied, and there was that follow-up e-mail. What a waste of time these scammer are! Most of these posts are worthless as nobody describes the end of the story.
What exactly is the scam not the come on. Could it be that it is a special check that can be voided after you send the shipping fee? In cohorts with a fake bank. Somebody expose this thing. How can one lose if the check clears or do they come after your boat before the check clears and pressures you to complete tranaction as they are in a hurry blah blah.
This is why sending an amount more than the asking price is such a common scam. If you deposit a fraudulent check YOU are responsible for it. The check often posts to your account, but that does not mean that the money is drawn from whichever frequently foreign bank printed on the check.
In the meantime, you have sent the scammer your real money usually a few thousand dollars , drawn on a real bank. If it seems too good to be true, it is. How are you doing today thanks for Getting back to me.. Well am very happy to read from you.. And i Just wanna congratulate you that your application as Been Approved..

I just a scammer try to con me into sending him money today and he used the same techinique listed above. Here is the email: I would have loved to come check it out my self but am currently in camp as military seer instructor for new recruits.
If my mode of payment is accepted just send me your PayPal email address, Paypal ID so i can pay in right away. I have a private courier agent that will come for the pick up after payments has been made, so no shipping included. I await your reply asap. Also beware of the International Shippers, they are working with this guy also or might be the same person. Military Instructor that is able to email at Message flagged Sunday, April 22, Got the same reply today from two scammers when I was trying to sell a sofa glad I did some homework visiting this link!
Please note the courier service do not deliver to P. I will also want you to know that I will be paying via Certified Check, and it will be sent to you via courier service due to the distance. Full Name on the check 2. Address where payment will be sent to not p. Once again, I will like to remind you that you will not be responsible for shipping as I will have my mover come over as soon as you have cashed the check.
Oh, my secretary made a mistake, please wire the additional amount to my movers. A bank has the right to come back to you for depositing bad funds.
The check may be drawn on a legit bank, and out of a legit acct, but when the company it is drawn against reconciles its bank statement and finds a bogus check, it will contest it with its bank, who will in turn take the money back from your bank, who will take the money from your account.
My question is, why do they always want you to delete the ad from CL? Jerks, now I have to repost, and have lost a week. I cant believe how similar these all are, i thought something was weird about the email address, both the same and domain poland , and then the response came…. If my mode of payment is accepted just send me your paypal email address, Paypal ID so i can pay in right away.
I just received email correspondence similar to the primary example posted by Nate. I replied with the info and gave my phone number for them to contact me then received this one: I will be buying this for the price you have listed it for.
Payment will be sent using PayPal and i will handle the PayPalsurcharge as well. I will arrange with a shipping company to have this picked up at your location once i have paid as i am out of town at themoment. Am a marine engineer and due to the nature of my work, phone calls making are restricted,so you can send me your PayPal email account so that i can send the payment at once and its easy to sign upfor one just log on to http: Very odd that they want to purchase my vehicle sight unseen……….
I was selling toddler toys and got a response from a guy whose email handle came through in my inbox as AA and who wanted me to call him immediately.
You ask too many questions. Thankfully I did a Google search and found this article before I gave him any information. I received a few emails from nichojohn gmail. Here is what he sent me:. Hello, I got 8 Pentium IV dell laptops. Below are the things needed to be done one on each laptops. Get back to me with your total cost for the services of 8 Laptops. Then, after my response, I got this email: I have all the necessary software needed for the service installations….
I am very sorry for the late in response and i am okay with the price i have all the necessary software needed for the service installations…. Also funny that he uses the same stupid form letter used by the same stupid scammers time and time again….
Please send the check to: When you have noted that the check has arrived, let me know right away. Something i realized that may help others is that the scammer i encountered yesterday and today used the same name with each message but a different email and the only way to realize this is to scroll over his name which is uncommon to do in each diff.
You can also see this because instead of the email getting longer and longer with each reply, it starts over each time. Thanks for the swift response to my mail,I am highly elated with your advert,Hence it is still available. I will send a bank check Check via UPS next day delivery.
I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the pick up money will be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable pick up company to schedule an appropriate time for he pick-up at your location after check has been cashed,as i have other properties to be moved alongside with yours.
I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work frame that might not be possible,but if you have the pics,might want to have a good look. Please do get back to me with your full name and address including your cell and land number so i can make out payment. I'm so glad i did read it though. I wrote him a followup message stating i received another offer cash and that i feel more comfortable with that transaction.
Also, that anything sent to me will be mailed back immediately. My son and husband have been listing items on CList and I can not convince them that I believe the following is a scam…. As promised, the check finally left origin yesterday and should get to you today unfailingly by USPS Express Mail Delivery with the shipping funds included.
EO US you can track online using the link below so you can make yourself available at time of delivery.
So get back to me with the following information on the Western Union receipt. I was able to at least convince them to have check sent to different address then our home and item is stored elsewhere. I had the check sent to my office. I asked the sender to call me at my office…. I looked up the school my school is in NY online and sent a copy of the check to the school to see if they had issued it. A nearby city had counterfeit 20s showing up at stores.
Turns out they were some reports of passing some on Craigslist, not huge ticket items like cars but electronics etc. They would meet in person, give you cash and of course, no ID was needed for it. Some guy who sells on CL a lot had a great idea that he posted. He said he meets the buyer in a favorite neighborhood bar and gets his bartender friend to check the bills. Just telling buyers to expect this has actually lost him two deals. If anything sounds funny to you, it might pay to have someone who handles money a lot check the bills, or get the pen and read up on the security items embedded in bills.
Here is something I feel is suspicious and worth tell you about. I advertised an old Korg analogue synth and an obsolete 4-track cassette. The 4-track might be OK for spares and the Korg for musicians wanting an 80s retro sound. I got two replies from the same person who asked about both things. He replied to each ad with the following: Your kind gesture will be so much appreciated.
The message lacked any interest in precise details of either device. Looked very fishy to me. I notice that these scammers are after expensive items. I felt a funny feeling inside when I received their upbeat email. I typed in craigslist scams to see if there were any like it, and there were dozens with the same wording as mine. Watch out and try to sell locally.
I have used both CL and Ebay to sell things with some success. Luckily, I have not been a victim of them. I typically ignore the ones I think are scammers. However, this morning I received an email, and then I replied to it, and then got another email from someone else. I looked up scams on CL and found this site. Really great to see that others are trying to help one another identify the scammers. I now feel like writing back that I know he is scamming and I will report him.
March 14, 3: Let me know if you would like to see them. March 14, 8: Hello My assistant told me that you still have the item 4 sale,I will pay your asking price. I will likely make payment by check or money order as its the only way I can pay you at the moment I am actually out of the States on a business trip.
I will make arrangement for pick-up after payment has been received by you. Kindly reply with your full name,cell phone number,and address where payment should be sent,i will appreciate if you can get the ad off craigslist so i can be sure you are keeping it in my favor. I just read every single one of these letters… nice to know I am not the only target.
As I am trying to sell off my jewels for medical payments… my posts seem to have attracted every crook in the book. I checked it out for myself after one of those replies. HELLO… are you really going to tell someone when your not going to be at home after you have given them your address?
I did learn something new and just in the nick of time… please repeat the post about CASH… never thought about cash being an issue.. Now I know to meet buyers at the bank.
Thank you, thank you very much for your energy to keep us informed. God Luck everyone with your sales… and trust your gut on each response.
So I posted a job resume on cl yesterday. The post was about looking for horse related jobs. I have received over 10 responses and NONE of then are for horse jobs! The guys name is carton roger, he also gave me him professsion, name, age, and where he lived.
The other one is for house is for house cleaning, I told him I had a friend who happens to clean houses and he asked if she was staying with and if she was my best friend.
Also wanted to play for 3 days aweek for 3 hours a day. His name is Richard Thomas. I really think theses are too good to be true, if someone has heard of these before or has any advice plz help. I am a single mother with 2 kids And I am needing work badly. I will never think of taking some kinda advantage over you and please take that out of your mind that is an awful thing to think about.
Please understand me better. I currently have an item on CL, and I notice that when i replied to an inquiry it was sent to a different email address. The initial inquiring email seemed legit, hence the reason why I replied.
When I did not hear back from the person I check to see if the email was sent, and notice it was sent to a different address. Has anyone had this problem, is it normal, or is this a sure sign of a scam.
Thanks for your prompt response and i have decided and concluded to buy the item from you. I am OK with the cost. I will be needing the following information to issue out the payment.. Not P o Box Address: I also have some other goods i already bought in other location which my mover will pick up all together.
Please note that the payment will be delivered to your address and I will also wait for the funds to cleared in your bank account before my mover come for the pickup of the item and i am still waiting for your response now.!
Luckily I am moving, but am curious, did he ever do anything with the info you gave him? Hello everybody i have received about 3 emails now and need some help determining if it is indeed a scam or not. I have one other person asking about it if he doesnt want it or you give a better offer its all yours.

Your phone number…………… 4. Have a nice day.. Can anyone determine if this is a scam or not based on the information i have provided and what is the worst thing that can happend if this does turn out to be a scam and this person now has my name and address? And the idiot does not even know computers have not been around for 50 yrs-must be young.

I was given another multi machine by work I have a home office. This decision came after allegations by several U. On September 4, , Craigslist closed the adult services section of its website in the United States. The site initially replaced the adult services page link with the word "censored" in white-on-black text.
The site received criticism and complaints from attorneys general that the section's ads were facilitating prostitution and child sex trafficking. The adult services section link was still active in countries outside of the U. It would likely result in the takedown of what might otherwise be perfectly legitimate free expression. On September 8 , , the "censored" label and its dead link to adult services were completely removed. Craigslist announced on September 15, , that it had closed its adult services in the United States, however, it defended its right to carry such ads.
Free speech and some sex crime victim advocates criticized the removal of the section, saying that it threatened free speech and that it diminished law enforcement's ability to track criminals. However, the removal was applauded by many state attorneys general and some other groups fighting sex crimes. Craigslist said that there is some indication that those who posted ads in the adult services section are posting elsewhere.
The company makes efforts to fight prostitution and sex trafficking, and in , Craig Newmark received an award from the FBI for cooperation with law enforcement to fight human trafficking. On December 19 , , after pressure from Ottawa and several provinces, Craigslist closed 'Erotic Services' and 'Adult Gigs' from its Canadian website, even though prostitution was not itself illegal in Canada at the time.
Craigslist has a user flagging system to quickly identify illegal and inappropriate postings. Users may flag postings they believe to be in violation of Craigslist guidelines. Flagging does not require account login or registration, and can be done anonymously by anyone. The number of flags required for a posting's removal is dynamically variable and remains unknown to all but Craigslist staff. Flagging can also alert Craigslist staff to blocks of ads requiring manual oversight or removal.
Craigslist includes a barter option in its "for sale" section. This growing trade economy has been documented on the television program Barter Kings and the blog One red paperclip.
In July , the San Francisco Chronicle criticized Craigslist for allowing ads from dog breeders, stating that this could encourage the over-breeding and irresponsible selling of pit bulls in the Bay Area. In January , the San Francisco Bay Guardian published an editorial claiming that Craigslist could threaten the business of local alternative newspapers. Gordon Crovitz , writing for The Wall Street Journal , criticized the company for using lawsuits "to prevent anyone from doing to it what it did to newspapers", contrary to the spirit of the website, which bills itself in a "noncommercial nature, public service mission, and noncorporate culture".
In , Craigslist sued PadMapper, a site that hoped to improve the user interface for browsing housing ads, and 3Taps, a company that helped PadMapper obtain data from Craigslist, in Craigslist v. This led users to criticize Craigslist for trying to shut down a service that was useful to them. It accepts charitable donations, and rather than directly funding organizations, it produces "face-to-face events and offers online resources to help grassroots organizations get off the ground and contribute real value to the community".
Since , the Craigslist Foundation has hosted eight annual conferences called Boot Camp, an in-person event that focuses on skills for connecting, motivating and inspiring greater community involvement and impact. As of summer , the Craigslist Foundation's functions are mostly moved to LikeMinded.
