Around a month ago I posted a sprint phone for sale on craigslist. It sold the same day and I went in and deleted the post. On January 1st, 2009, the post showed up again and I started getting mad calls. I kept telling people it sold a long time ago until one lady said she just saw the ad today, so I checked online and there it was.. flagged it and emailed craigslist techincal support. No answer and it stayed up.
On January 5th, it posted yet again without my permission. Flagged and emailed technical support. Nothing done, constant phone calls (to the point of interrupting my sleep now) continue asking about the phone.
Now today, January 13th, it reposted itself AGAIN without my permission. So I tried starting a craigslist account with the same email I used to register the post in the first place. Got my account up and running but it shows no posts, active or archived, for me. So I flagged the ad again, filled out craigslist help form as well as sent an email to [email protected]
. If it's anything like the past two weeks, I'm not expecting much from them.
What's bothering me is the NON-STOP phone calls I keep getting about something I sold a month ago. I work at a county jail so we have to have our phones on 24/7 in case an emergency comes up but I'm at the point of just wanting to turn my phone off and get a decent day of sleep (I work 3pm to 11pm shift) without being woken up every hour. I know it's not the people's fault, they don't know any better it looks like a brand new ad. Craigslist has been extremely uncooperative in helping me as all of my requests have gone unanswered. Since this is the third time my ad has reposted itself, it's a safe guess to say this will keep going on.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to get the post permanently deleted? I'd even welcome banning my email address from craigslist if that'd do anything.
