is this really legitimate or is it a scam?

I just went online to post something on my craigslist account, i havn't beenon in a couple of weeks, but when i went to post it, it said that the account needs televerification. They want a good number to call or text a code to that i am suppose to put in the verify my account. Has anyone encountered this? I didn't want to do it and somehow charges get ran up on my phone bill or anything.

  • They want to verify you are a real person and not a computer. I guess they've been having problems with computers spamming the site.

  • I have done the phone verification. It's legit. They just call you one time.

  • Yes. If you place a job ad, phone verification is required.

  • They are doing this now because of all of the recent crimes by people on the site. It is to protect both you and the consumers. Its not a scam from the site.
