    Hey there I have a homesecurity business and need emails scraped off craigslist.

    Only looking for homeowners so i'm open to ideas for the best sections to scrape.

    pm me if you are good at this and can provide at least 1k emails daily.

    Most everyone uses the built in craigslist relay, which generates a @sale.craigslist.org address. Then when someone sends a message, it is relayed to the users actual email address.

    So I wouldn't expect to collect many actual emails.

    I also suspect that craigslist is pretty restrictive when sending to their addresses.

    I would imagine they don't care anymore considering this was posted 5 years ago!

    That's nuts. How did I end up on a 5-year-old post.

    I didn't get here from doing a search. I got here from the Home page.

    Maybe somebody else bumped the thread but the post got deleted.
