    Hi guys

    I'm based in the UK and want to post ads in the US cities of Craigslist but they ask for a mobile phone number to send an activation code but only to US and Canadian numbers.

    Is there anyone selling these accounts or some other way of getting an account?

    Thanks in advance.

    discussion of Craigslist is not allowed, that's why you are not seeing anyone selling accts.

    Because Craigslist has lawyers and will go after people.

    You are not missing out on any big overnight money from Craigslist. I normally sell overstock products I can discount 10% or more (example SP4 that just launched I sold a total of 12 of them for 15% off each) and because of the scammers and idiocy that plagues that site I found it hard to haggle and sell my products at first. I then moved to $10 off from full price and haggle down to about 10% ~ 15% off, anymore and I simply tell them I don't wish to continue haggling any further and to take their business elsewhere. I normally pick up the products at 20%+ off retail pricing, and the normality for volume discount ends at around 30%+ on such items. I have found that targeting local areas with Facebook ads and running specials from my social account is far easier with higher conversions and less problems overall.

    You can buy US proxies and try to target what city you want to post your junk in, but don't be surprised if you can't make back your proxy investment right away. Good luck.

    He is right unless you really know what you are doing or hire someone who does CL is not an easy game. Good money to be made there but it is tough
