Many of us have tried using a legitimate phone number that does not pass the Craigslist verification system. It is often the result of utilizing a VOIP or other internet-based phone number. Frustration certainly sets in when you cannot post the items or services on Craigslist — and most of us simply give up on it.
Craigslist does not make it easy to contact them when you are having an issue. In the past, I have used their contact form without ever receiving an answer. However, with some simple online research, I was able to discover the contact information for Craigslist. I felt as if I had won the lottery! I could finally give them a piece of my mind about their inadequate customer service.
As soon as I called the Craigslist phone number, my place in line was announced. I thought I would be on hold for up to an hour, considering the popularity of the site, but I was told by the automated system that I was only fifth place in line. Once I was transferred to a customer service rep, I was greeted by a pleasant person who listened to my problem.
It seemed as though my call was a common occurrence and she told me right away that she would manually verify my phone number for me. Since I had called in with my phone number blocked, she simply asked if she could call me right back to verify that it was a legitimate number. The rep called me and then my number was all set, as it would be automatically be associated with the email address and Craigslist account that I had initially attempted to use it on.
After the manual Craigslist phone number verification, I logged into my Craigslist account and I was able to start posting into the various classified sections immediately. It was nice to know that I could list my item on a website that millions of people use every single day.
I was required to call for a second Craigslist phone number verification because I have two Craigslist accounts, one for personal postings and one for business postings. This time around, a rep required me to call back with my phone number unblocked so that they could see it on their caller ID display. Once I did this, it was manually added to the system. However, when I tried to log into my Craigslist account, it was not verified. I then called back and found out that I would have to clear my cookies in order for it work. I did exactly that and my account was ready to go.
Having this manual Craigslist phone number verification allows people to use Google Voice, Vonage, Skype and other internet-based phone services.
