Craigslist has been using a phone verification process for some time and it finally hit my area. I’m using Vonage and so far have found it impossible to verify my number with them. Therefore, I am unable to make any posts on Craigslist.
I had the same issue myself recently - in case you are wondering why Craigslist requires the verification, there has been a boom in automated spam accounts. More or less, they exclude VoIP because it's the phone system of choice for scam artists.
However, you can verify by speaking directly to a human operator @ 1-800-664-0633. Choose the authentication option from the menu and go from there.
I found that article. However, I don't get an option for "authentication". Do you remember which number that option is?
not any more! Today is 1-19-12 no human help in person. we are all out of luck. I just tested the 800 number you gave. don't waste your time.
Thank you for making me feel welcome to this forum. I'm sure I'll post a lot if I get a warm welcome like this every time.
