I know diesel is expensive these days, but there's no way this car is really being sold for $3500, right? I expect to see this "flagged for removal" by tomorrow. They give no contact info, but that seems to be typical for Craigslist. Geez, I hate clicking on their links for sending emails. This car is posted under the Virginia (Hampton Roads) section. I've inquired, but I only expect a Nigerian prince to respond to my email (oh, wonderful!).
sorry...I always do that. The car was a VW Jetta TDI, 2003 with 56k miles. The ad stated a price of "$3505"...which is an odd price. ...aside from a ridiculously LOW price (I just didn't understand, why the extra $5?). Anyway, I can't see that it's been flagged for removal, but it certainly doesn't appear listed anymore. Oh well. Must've sold (haha).
Now says "This posting has been flagged for removal"....must have been fake.
I've had a number of Craigslist ads of mine flagged for no apparent reason at all.
A lot of times your competition will flag you, particularly if you are trying to sell a service.
Craigslist claims that something like 99% of flagged and removed ads violate their terms of service but after a thorough perusal of the rules I never have found a rule that any of my flagged ads have violated.
On the bright side, I *did* get a $3000 check for an item I was advertising for $150 once.. They just wanted me to send the rest of the money to them via courier..
