It is no doubt Craigslist has been a great web site for many years; many people still depend on it to post and look for ads. It has been a choice for many businesses and consumers alike, but with so much popularity there is also abuse and fraud.
Most of us know the typical frauds that scammers use Craigslist for, aiming at stealing from people posting all sorts of their products online. Sending fake PayPal emails with “on hold funds until item is sent” to some low-life place in Nigeria or even somewhere within the states, there’s also scammers using it to sell fake puppies – asking you to pay for their plane ticket to “personally” hand you the puppy, and the all-time scam of women seeking men where scammers find every way possible to get desperate men seeking a female online to fess up some money through western union or even PayPal.
The latest scam has been brought to my attention recently and I just had to share, small businesses and alike are being targeted, how? There are groups called “Craigslist Experts” that claim that if you hire them they will post ads on your behalf for your business/products/etc and flag the ads of your competitors so that their ads get deleted. But, it doesn’t stop there (of course not). These scammers also take the step to notify your competitors, of the very same ads they are flagging, of these actions and send them an email stating that there is a business or person who is trying to hire them to flag your ads and if you don’t hire them yourself they won’t have any other choice but to flag your ads to be deleted, and believe me, they do succeed at it. They don’t notify you until a few of your ads get deleted first so that when you are annoyed enough an email like this may be of relief to you, but instead it’s a way to hassle you out of your money.
Now, perhaps they are flagging and deleting your ads without any other business actually hiring them and instead try to get money out of you to make them stop. Either way, it’s all a scam. And thus making Craigslist and even less stable and reliable source to use to post ads. Good luck and be careful out there!
