    I used to use Craigslist to post about 5 different web development related ads in 3 different cities twice a day. 30 ads daily. I had a pretty good system going until this phone verification thing happened. I decided to take a break from CL and let the dust settle.

    I went back to Computer Services and there are tons of the same ol spammy ads that I was competing with 2 months ago... So a lot of people know how to get around it and get a bunch of accounts...

    What are you guys doing? Are there any phone services out there that will work for CL? Or is the only option left to buy accounts.....

    Thanks.

    I haven't done CL marketing in like three years, but my guess would be register for new accounts using a new IP each time like a wireless card and then use a service like tollfreeforwarding to get a bunch of numbers, one for each account.

    Yes, I have thought of trying something like that out... However I know Craigslist is on top of phone databases and weeding out the numbers they are able to identify as not being 100% legitimate... So my question is... Does anyone know of any phone number services that are working for CL?

    Even if they did, they will NOT tell you publicly. Especially on this forum. Unless they're new, stupid or don't use CL lol. Expect to pay for it if anything.. My friend and I are working on a (maybe temp)workaround, but I dunno if it's going to work.

    Exactly... seems like everyone on this forum is just sitting on their ass waiting for someone to give them the golden key. Seriously, how many new posts do we need from people whining that no one has given them a step by step guide yet?

    Because some of us believe knowledge belongs to the people. If I knew I would gladly offer the information. I give away information whenever I can. I was brought up by hippies, I don't believe in selling information.

    Knowledge belongs to the people who put enough effort into trying to find it, whether it be reading, experimenting, being taught, or buying it... If he wants it bad enough he'll try to find a way.. or just wait for it and never see it cause by the time its public it will be fixed.


    Aren't "Hippies" hypocrites anyway?

    Pay someone a buck to use their phone number and send you the confirmation number.

    PM me and I let you use my cell phone for 1.

    Step 1. Have a buddy who's at home enter verification codes for you.
    Step 2. Ask random people or friends to use cell phones.
    Step 3. Call Buddy from the number, secretly press end.
    Step 4. Answer the phone verif call, and call him back.
    Step 5. You got a verified account.

    I had a guy from here on aim who figured it out - and it cost a decent ammount per number. I figured it out on my own with some trial and error, and though it's not free to get setup, the pricing is well under what most people are charging per account. I havent really had the time to do anything with it yet, but thought about either leasing accounts or doing a joint venture, or straight up selling the method. Dont know yet, but guess my advice to you is just think outside the box, and dont be afraid to try new things. Unless your flat broke it should be worth it to you to experiement with it.
