If Craigslist can "ghost" a local ad for a Schwinn 8 ways from Sunday whenever they feel like it, then they can certainly stop giving (seriously like super-lazy-dont-even-gotta-try) hackers & cyber criminals access to millions of kids phones worldwide, who are selling their skateboards & Pokemon cards & gotta deal with this garbage: (please see pic)

Plus the usual 5 or so virusy emails in my inbox. They (CL) make billions on paid ads now, so they can fix/filter this tired scam thing easily, but seem to choose to ignore anything that involves any effort whatsoever, leaning instead on a few tired warnings nobody sees or reads, especially kids.

I dont think I've ever had this particular problem with LetGo, 5 mile or any other free site I can think of thats still around. Not since like 2000? Not even Offer up (pretty bad one btw) was all virusy & full of scam emails like CL still is. Usually only seeing this nowadays on completely unmanned or abandoned "zombie" sites -not ones that are actuallly "legit" businesses with over a billion in ad revenue. Truly disgraceful that people *still* have to put up with 30 criminal fakers for every 5 ads they place on there.

So now they made it so I have to join "True You" to use the app or communicate with anyone about any item at all! Meanwhile They keep alerting me about stuff I can't buy. I can't even communicate about my stuff for sale. So I'll just leave my reviews up while I wait and find new sites to leave reviews, while they keep reminding me to do that with all those alerts. :) They were fine with taking $100 off my card without me being a "True You" member, but I can't contact the guy a block away selling a lawnmower without joining?

Where's my refund Offer Up?
• Previous review

They stole my money and are just hanging on to it! I made an offer on something ($90) for $70 plus $30 shipping. So I get a text some time later from my cc company saying that "Offer Up" took $100 off my card (not a "hold"), so I'm happy cuz I think my offer was accepted, but then all I get from offer up is something saying the transaction was cancelled(!), and they havent issued me a refund despite putting the item back out there for sale and NUMEROUS *ignored* requests! Then they got rid of my review on play store and sent me a "copy" showing I gave them 5 stars! They wouldnt even allow me to ask for my money back or anything unless I join "True You!" Why would I give these thieves more info to harass-market things to me when the transaction is already cancelled?
