  • Anyone else getting spam off Craigslist?

    I am just wondering if anyone else is getting spam off Craigslist ads. I just posted up a kids bike carrier and have been inundated with spam telling me to stop selling on the craigslist, and I don't have to sell my belongings to make it in this economy. I'm like wtf??? I just wanted to get rid of something that was taking up space in the garage, not trying to make my mortgage or electric bill for crying out loud :ugh!: I've always done real well selling things on Craigslist, however, if this keeps up, I don't know that I will try any more. I just received one in regards to another guys bike he was selling. :confused: I think I might make up a fake email address and spam the hell out of the sites that are spamming craigslist ads.

            Constantly. What I don't get is these emails have to be channeled through craigslist email servers. Why is it that my gmail account can tell this is spam, but craigslist can't?


            I live in detroit too and I really wanted to email and tell you that you honestly don’t have to sell your items just to pay the bills. I know it really stinks to have to get rid off your things and I get what it's like to feel down in this economic situation. A while ago I had to get rid of my daughter’s TV just to make our next payment. Those were without doubt the saddest times for my family.

            My best friend was recently laid off due to the financial crisis. However, he has learned about an easy way to make a career on-line and it truly helped me to sort myself out. I could not believe he would share this with me in the 1st place, and I felt I should come back and tell everyone else who may be in these hard times. I promise you that it’s deserving of 15 seconds of your day.

            Ah yes here is the url (with held just so nobody accidentally clicks on it and gets them a penny of ad revenue, or worse, gives their computer a virus)

            I hope you find that it’s lucrative as well. Feel free to tell your friends!

Now I drive these: 83 GTI W00T, 82 vanagon wasserboxer. Yes, it is officially an 82, and no, there wasn't a swap, 81 Honda Express slowped, to be driven only while wearing a gorilla mask and intoxicated.

              Also, why is that I feel the death penalty is more appropriate for this kind of spam, but less appropriate for a murder?

              I think it's because my morals and belief system is based on the 'Manager Glen' model:

              "Why is it when a man kills another man in battle it's called heroic, yet if he kills a man in the heat of passion...it's called murder?"

                  Kill one man, a murderer.
                  Kill a million, a king.
                  Kill all, a god.

                  ..we just watched Blade and needed to throw that out there.

                  I too have gotten those emails; "click", "delete".

                      I always get it when I post on criagslist. But its not about that stuff. Its more advertising car insurance.

                          I always get some spam on my ads, but not enough to be overwhelming. Usually pretty easy to spot.
