CL in my city is officially dead and corrupt to the core and 100% of the ads are from the 3rd world scammers. India, Pakistan etc.. I'm not joking when I say 100% . I went to view a main page and they show about 50 posts, well it was obvious as day that all 50 ads were posted by the same person. Its a 3rd world scam crew that has infected kijijii and craigslist, they make contacts for both buying and selling, the ads are not as ridiculous as the scammers of the past who tell you they won a diamond mine and just need to get the money out of the country. These are quite sophisticated and mostly revolve around IDENTITY THEFT or other spoofing tactics. They are either spoofing you or spoofing someone else using your identity. They also do scripts and programs, this includes ransoms, computer lock ups, credit card and banking scams, other scams that have morphed over the years but all revolve around the same things. Its basically looking for weaknesses, exploits, your kids, etc and they have literally hundreds of scams they can apply on you based on what they find. Some cockroach will call and try get your kids to give up your address or reveal other personal information, maybe get you to visit a website so they can grab your IP, or worse find an open port. Since scam sites like CL and kijiji have forced accounts it has everyone infected, you will be contacted eventually as a buyer or seller and slowly these terrorist build a complete profile on you. It may take them years but I have proven that the same scam screws have been working this for years. I was able to track some back as far as 5 years to ebay but today they are working craigslist and kijiji and the scams have hundreds of variations. They even have job applications and gig offers but all of them feature the same thing, a scammer saying send me a scan of your license or some proof you are a driver so you get the job or some variation of this scam. All I can say is if you're a buyer or seller get a $10 cell phone and never give your real name out. These companies like CL and kijiji are the problem, they ar 100% fraud trying to be global and be in every city, that is why they do such a poor job and always need to up the stakes on their so called safety efforts, which always fails and morphs into bigger scam infecting more people. Trade locally , AVOID TEXT MESSAGES, USE CALLS ONLY until you know the person.

This is not a classifieds site as you are led to believe. The site is overseas and there is no business or anything of the sort, its a shell for collecting info. Its not a failed site, rather a scam site from the ground up by third world scammers.

KJ is a fraud for the end user. The best thing you can is never to buy from their advertisers and boycott the dirty businesses that advertise there. Don't be fooled and think that accounts are for safety or enhancing your experience. Its for tracking and selling your data to google, facebook, government. They make your experience as slow as possible and are purposely out to harm the end user for tracking dollars. This is why you always get that stupid do you still have it email so you are forced to log in and be tracked. Craigslist works just fine without accounts and the prices are much better and easy to browse. The further proof to the extent of the tracking features is evident when you try to protect yourself with noscript or adblock addons, they throw an error right away and reject your post, query, signup etc.. Boycott any site which uses google or google captcha services. This is not about bots as the user is led to believe but rather creating your own unique tracking ID based on your IP, browser, desktop.
