Thank you,I'll take care of it.
I myself think it would be a great idea to really crack down on these scum.
One thing I think would work is to whack any ad that someone lists like a 2007 24' Cabin Cruiser for $12,000 and the person does not leave a phone number.
This would cut down on a bunch of scams.
I would recommend anyone wanting an item to not respond to a too good to be true item if no phone number is listed.
meaux - I totally agree. The one common thing with the scammers is they NEVER leave a phone number. They can't leave a number when they live in Nubai!!
Some people don't want to leave their number. I think if you want to sell something, that's just a price you have to pay...
IF WE ALL SEND E-MAILS TO THE STAFF MAYBE THEY WILL GET THE HINT THIS IS GETTING OUT OF HAND !!
Scammers ads were deleted 2 hours ago, AND THEY'RE BACK ALREADY!!!!
Get rid of the commercial ads!
just keep sending him emails of stupid stuff like jokes, pictures, websitez and you know stuff. he'll go away if we flood his mail box :}
There has got to be something we can do to fight back..... I say we copy their e-mail address and post mock adds on craigslist for weird pets for sale? Bearded dragons, chinchillas, ext.... Or maybe something like free firewood or something.... I imagine they would get tired of e-mail asking what color chinchilla they had for sale or where they could come pick up the fire wood.
Just a thought haha.
Just delete them, it is obvious which ads are scams. Requiring phone # in ad is a good solution to stop them. And yes the commercial ads is out of hand. One auto dealer has 37 ads, come on, that is rediculous to even allow that. I understand they pay to advertise but they should be limited. Either the website is making a killing off the business ads or the businesses is saving a whole lot for cheap advertisements with all the ads they each post.
If a phone number was required , do you really think that would deter scammers any ? , I would think they would make up a phone number cause they are not looking to talk to you anyway
Thank you for being interested in my 2000 KEY WEST 19FT CENTER CONSOLE. The boat is in immaculate condition, rust free, no damages, the title is under my name, free of any liens or loans on it. Everything looks like pictures show's. I am selling it at this price ($4,399) because I just finished my divorce and owned this boat, Is not needed so I decide to sell it, Right now I've moved into my new house in London United Kingdom starting a new career. The boat is still in the states. I want this transaction to go smoothly enough as I got a new job and I'm working 12 hours a day and I have little time at my disposal, So I intend to use AliExpress Escrow (Buyer Protection Program) as third party if you are interested.
For more pictures with the boat please go to: http://postimage.org/gallery/czucdkk/dad20d4e/
Thank you and If you are interested get back to me on this email address.

I just deleted three more bogus ads. We will try our best to delete these fake ads but I am sure by the time you read this and check out the classifieds that more will have shown up.
So keep in mind that scammers are out there and supplying you with false information is not a problem for them, including phone numbers, addresses etc.
So NEVER pay anything even if it is just a down payment until you have seen the merchandise in person.
email addresses are free.
phone numbers are easy to type and easy to acquire temporarily.
pictures are free.
post on a message board are free.
So exorcize a little skepticism, snake oil salesmen have been around for a long time and aren't going away anytime soon.
let me ask you guys something can anyone see the numbers on that bass tracker and see who it is registered to
I replied to the ad and got an identical reply to the one above.
'freefishies' is a scammer
If you check the profile of the ads in question, you will find that the User is typically a member for less than 24 hours. What might cut down on false Ads is a few requirements such as a user must post on the site a few times (2-5 times) and you need a profile that is at least 6 months old.
Hey Chasentails if you look at the pics of that key west. its sitting on a dual axel tailor but the trailor by its self is a single axel. I think a 6 month wait & require that you've posted a report would slow down the scammers for a while.
I can tell you that the business ads are way more aggrivating than the scammers. I know when a deal is too good to be true, but to have to go through 57 ads from .... is a major pain. Please, please put a tab somewhere that these businesses can put all the classified ads they want to and if I need one of their services or products, I will click on the tab and go look at what they have to offer. Some of the ones I'm referring to are Big-Bucks-Trucks, Catch Dat Too, Bayou Auto Sales, Moby Marine, GeauxBassBuckNDuck, Boardwalk Motors, etc. I probably left out a few as well. There should be a page or something for businesses that want to list their complete inventories, but the classifieds should be for individuals with one or two things to sale. I notice that other businesses have ads that you can click on, maybe these businesses should do the same. BTW, thanks for a great site.
If you google some of these adds you can find most of then on YABAZ.COM already sold. most are out of florida. and can't agree more with the BUSINESS ADDS man they are a pain in the a.., I agree about a seperate tab but would they use it!!!!
While having to scroll through 40 straight cars in a used car lot is tedious, AT LEAST it's legal!! I think the CRIMINALS should be targeted and not a local business owner.
I've emailed the 'lead moderator' 4 times about the user 'freefishies' and his continued posting of bullshit scam ads, is there anyone that actually cleans this up or are we just supposed to comb through attempts of theft and fraud on a daily basis?
'lynnetterosse' is also a scammer. I talked to a guy in FL that was selling that EXACT boat 3 days ago for 4 times as much.
'cape1000' is selling a $15,000 boat for $3,700 and claims it's in LA but it has SC #'s
I say any user on here for more than six months should be able to post free. Anyone less than six month post for a fee. I think it would slow down the scammers.
firstname.lastname@example.org IS A SCAM IN THE ATV SECTION. Contacted via email with the same BS story that she is in divorce and has moved to London. Bomb these a-holes with emails!!! Send email to email@example.com
yes its getting hard for a guy trying to buy a boat for his kids and go fishing with all this junk been posted out there
What so hard , you look you go and if you like it you pay.
speck - The whole point is THESE PEOPLE ARE CRIMINALS!!!!!!! If someone is selling crack next to your house, do you just look the other way? You don't smoke crack so no harm done right?
if u no they are scammers, scam them back and have fun!!!!
Wrong JB-I was just trying to make a point, don't fall for does scamers. Check it out before u buy.
speck - I understand what you are trying to say. My whole issue is these people are criminals. Allowing a criminal to be a criminal is being part of the problem. Once again, I bring up drug dealers. I do not smoke crack, never have, never will. Should I look the other way when I see someone trying to sell crack? No I should not. Allowing a criminal to be a criminal is wrong.
