I bought the Ad Nuke software that flags Craigslist postings on August 1, 2011. I was satisfied with the service until yesterday when out of nowhere, the seller of the Ad Nuke software told me that he's not going to help me flag ads anymore because he can decide when to flag Craigslist postings, which he never disclosed on his website. Yesterday, I wanted to flag ads from a scammer who posts on Craigslist every day. However, the seller of the Ad Nuke software said that he's not going to flag his ads because according to him, the ads that the scammer posts look legitimate since the ads had contact information. Well, how do you decide if an ad is legitimate or not? Just because an ad has contact information doesn't mean it's legitimate. Also, there was another ad I wanted to flag from a spammer and the seller refused to help me flag that ad because according to him, it's a honeypot. Well, how do you decide if an ad looks attractive to buyers or not? Why didn't he post those rules on his website? The website is nothing but just plain false advertisting.. [continued below]....

Also, the seller of the Ad Nuke software will try to confuse you with payment options. He may only accept Green Dot MoneyPak payments, but that's not the point I'm making here. I told him that I wanted to flag a maximum of 10 ads per day, so I'd rather spend $100 annually for the software. The $150 payment that he mentions is when you pay $100 annually for the software plus the $50 which is for 100 credits ($0.50 per credit or an extra 100 ads to flag) for every ad you flag over 10 ads a day. For example, if I flag 30 ads in a day, it will cost me $10 because I went over the 10 ads a day limit (30 -10=20, so 20*$0.50=$10 resulting in $40 in credits remaining). The seller of the Ad Nuke software had the nerve to tell me that I negotiated him down the price of $150. I told him that I only intend to flag as much as 10 ads per day so I'd rather spend $100 on it so I don't need the 100 credits, which is $50. I didn't need to flag more than 10 ads per day. That's all. He will play mind games with you when it comes to paying either $100 or $150.

So to everyone interested in buying a Craigslist flagging software, if you want to flag any ads that don't require any restrictions, Ad-Nuke (www.ad-nuke.com) is not the way to go. Before I bought the software, I thought I could flag any ad I want because I read everything on the website top to bottom and left to right. There were no disclosures or disclaimers about how the seller of the Ad Nuke software decides when to flag ads when submitting the links to flag on the software. I only flag scammers and spammers that post on Craigslist. But until yesterday, he came up with new terms and new rules about flagging ads on Craigslist using his software. And today, as of this writing, he still hasn't posted those guidelines of when he decides to flag ads on Craigslist. He decided to just refund my money without my permission, even though I expected to stay with his service in the long run.

If you're interesting in flagging ads on Craigslist, do me and yourself a favor by NOT buying his software. His service, payment options, and his guidelines which he doesn't disclose on his website are plain BS. I explained to him billions of times about my situation about getting rid of these scammers and spammers that post on Craigslist frequently, but he doesn't give two SH**S about it. It took me hours to explain to him how I got screwed by these scammers and spammers on Craigslist so the only way I can avenge them is by using the Ad Nuke software and flag their ads. He didn't give a d**n about my situation. Not only that, he told me to leave him a positive feedback on www.thebotnet.com 2 weeks ago after I first tried out the demo version of his software, which I did. But obviously, he doesn't give a rat's A** about it because all he cares about is that positive feedback. I'm glad that I'm leaving a negative feedback on Ad Nuke here so everyone who's interested in buying a Craigslist flagging software should read. After all that waste of time of using his service and software, all I have to say is this: DON'T BUY FROM AD-NUKE (www.ad-nuke.com)!

AUTHOR: Boone - ()

I knew he would fold, yes he could flag but he had no bot or 1200 customers, He would flag about 10 post on demo and then pressured you to send in $100 making you think you will get accest to his ''BOT'' 

There never was a bot, if he was selling a real secret to you CL could pick up on it and patch it like it did years ago when it was posible to streamline the flagging process and use proxies to fool CL..

Well old buddy scammer owner of ad puke it looks like you will be back panhandling on the streets...I know how you flagged and I caused so much mayham with CL they patched it...dont believe me...check out raleigh RR I took out the whole board in june 2013...CL patch it and shut down your method of flagging...I see you folded in july 2013...

Ad nuke lowers price hmmmmmm

AUTHOR: Chump - (United States of America)

Reading the complaint from the guy who reported ad nuke for selective flagging..

More proof AD NUKE are LIARS...scammers and liars do go hand in hand. When I emailed adnuke they told me all of the post they flag are not seen by humans...they dont have the time because they are busy flagging 10,000s of adds for 1000s of very satisfied customers...WELL why aren't  those customers writing good reviews...

'Simple program' their ad explains ...I dont think so...a real flagging auto bot is complex but they may be right about simple because their technique is simple...they give you a program that fakes the look of an auto flag bot, the program sends the url of the post you want flagged to the owner of adnuke and he manually flags it on '' demo '' and after he fools you into sending in $100 its all over.

I noticed Ad Nuke lowered their price....so did many of the other old flaggers. CL made big changes blocking malicious flagging last year...CL is a lot richer and more complex than the trouble makers and they have blocked the real flag programs...Ad nuke never had a real program they flag a few for free manually ( time consuming) to prove they can flag...but they can not flag 10,000 a day..

$100 for 900 ads adnuke wants to charge, if that was true I would gladly pay twice that much if they had a real auto flag bot...I have dealt with them as many different ( fake ) customers asking lots of questions before I sent them my money...They got nasty and their answers did not make sense..

He says if he was a fake he would not last long in business..what he is doing is not really illegal, can you imagine telling the law some guy ripped you off because you thought he was going to flag post of your competition...he has only been here 2 years...street pan handlers can go on longer than that, if he fools one person a day he is making a better living than a busboy.  

I posed as 12 fake customers and he seemed pretty desperate to get my $100, he spent a lot of time being nice ..being pushy...being sarcastic... just a little too aggressive.. I would think if he had all of the repeat customers he claimed he would be bringing in 1000s a day and not have time playing around going after $100..

His '' 24/7 auto flag bot'' seemed to shut down when he got off of the internet..We are all getting wiser to internet scams. He wont be around that much longer.

100% of the time.... totally false

AUTHOR: scambuster - (United States of America)

I think once the owner got his money he stopped flagging because it took up his time. Using some excuse about being unethical or the post looked ''legitimate'' what a joke. the owner of ad nuke wiped out all the post on DC R&R friday may 11 http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/rnr/3010265413.html.

He warned them and flagged them just for fun, maybe he resorted to Erasing R&R boards to drum up new customers, earlier that week he just lost his best advertisement on CNET and ZDnet because he got caught making up fake positive reports, funny how he monitors the internet ready to give a fake positive rebuttal to the complaints.

Be warned he is in it to make money only, you have to question a persons ethics that flags post to pay his bills. I email him and asked him why and he said 'it paid his mortgage'. from emailing him I concluded he does not have a super flag bot capable of handling 1000s of post an hour, It appears he uses his software program to send the post you want flagged to him, he flags it manually (time consuming ) for the demo and after he gets the money from the person thinking they are buying a program he moves on. 

You have to question the people buying this also, they are buying it to cheat, flag their competition the owner of ad nuke is playing on greed.

Not Quite...

AUTHOR: Ad-Nuke - (United States of America)

Stanley IP (ipkiss_stanley@yahoo.com)   1632 71st Street Brooklyn, NY 11204 purchased our software on August 1.  He purchased our software to bulk-flag ads off of Craigslist.

He then used the software in a very irresponsible manner that triggered self-preservation mode for our company.

What Stanley fails to mention is WE contacted HIM to cancel his account and send a refund, whereas he begged us to continue services.

What Stanley also fails to mention is that he attempted to hire a company to hack / copy our software.

Perhaps Mr. IP would be inclined to tell the ENTIRE story from now on.

Our software is 100% effective, 100% of the time - take a look at www.ad-nuke.com.
