I was getting sick and tiered of all the people putting up fake ads on craigslist when i came across a program to help me flag these spots. Sounded amazing, but unfortunately it turned out to be a scam as well, go figure.
Being that they offer a unique service, it easy to think there wouldn't already be a scam attached to it, especially since the website is rather professional looking. Do not be fooled.
While the payment method seems secure, its untraceable and once you make the payment you will never get you money back!!! While they never get the chance to take anymore money from you, they undoubtably will take what you give them. I was only able to use there software effectively twice, before it failed and could not be contacted. What ever you do avoid ad-nuke.com and green dot money packs.

Everything is true, do not buy it, trust me I didn't listen to the reviews

AUTHOR: ZeroCool - ()

Trust me, do not buy. I am so sorry this is a scam but believe the reviews. I am not a competitor or a liar. I used this software as well as everyone else here. The owner will give you a name and password then flag the ads himself, then after a few you are cut off. The program only works to get your money than once you do it will not work. I have reported to several crime agents and all links connecting his site. I was duped by this liar. Please do not be like me and get scammed by this software.

He will stop flagging right after he gets your money. Start making free accounts and he never says the software is down or not working. New accounts will work until he pays you, I tried with several new accounts and its always the same. Works until you pay. Then never again. He flags ads himself then once you pay there is always suddenly an "issue". Every single time, build 10 new accounts and try it.

Ad-nuke, Michael James Papp, sued by Craigslist

AUTHOR: MichaelJamesPapp - ()

According to courthousenews.com/2012/10/15/51258.htm http://www.courthousenews.com/2012/10/15/51258.htm Craigslist have sued Ad-nuke.com / Adnuke / Ad Nuke, identifying a Michael James Papp (Mods - to be clear, I'm just pointing to a matter of 3rd party record here, I'm not exposing any information that isn't already available).

You can see for yourself at that link, or just Google (and if you just Google his first name, it seems he lives in Coplay/Bethlehem PA). Is this the same guy?

A whole lot of reasons to steer clear.

Is the programmer on drugs?

AUTHOR: consumer2013a - ()

I attempted to try this ad nuke software yesterday. I emailed the owner who has a different email address than the one provided above. I followed his instructions precisely in my email. I indicated I wanted to demo it under a political section of Craigslist.

The owner emails me back saying they do not allow demos under personals or R and R.

Confused, I went back to CL and looked where Politics is located under. Community.

Not personals.

I wrote the owner back and asked him why he thought Politics was under the personal section. You would think if someone is selling a product they would understand it right? Apparently the ad nuke guy thinks Politics is under personals. I tired quickly of this email exhange, and found another solution to my problem.

I simply asked several friends to flag the posts with me that was in question.

Within a day the spammer in the politics section went away.

Long story short, I would have purchased this clown's product if he allowed me to see it works. 

After reading  all the complaints above, and seeing how the owner changed email addresses, I suspect I would have been the latest consumer to get scammed.

Ad Nuke owner makes fake rebuttals

AUTHOR: scambuster - (United States of America)

Ad nuke is not a program, the owner manually flags the post you request on the demo. Once you send in your money thinking you are buying a program ready to work 24/7 the owner stops flagging. Good luck hearing from them again. the payment by green dot is used by scammers.

Just recently Cnet and ZDnet removed Ad Nuke from their forums they know their stuff. dont listen to the fake positive post about ad nuke they are made by the owner just as easily as I made this report. Use your common sense.

Ad-Nuke works and is very useful

AUTHOR: oxfordu - (USA)

I wanted to update my last comments as I wanted to say is there is other companies that flag Craigslist ads but really 2 I know don't work, one takes hours to run which requires to leave your computer on and uses over 80,000 different proxies. It collapses all the time and basically does nothing in my experience. I paid $60.00 for that product and I demanded a refund and they threaten me if I called my bank about a charge back as they do not refund at all, that they will post my name to credit companies and extra, it was a scam.

Now Ad-Nuke, different story. I paid $150.00 per license and bought 4 licenses for $600.00, I flag 40 ads a day and every time it works, usually in 10 minutes. If they have a delay, they will let you know.

Listen I am a customer for Ad-Nuke as I was iffy at first to buy a license but went with it 4 months ago. I no longer need to change my ip address anymore or drive my vehicle to several locations to get a different ip, now it is all done with Ad-Nuke.

I am happy with their service, like anything, any business, if you want something and its limited, you will pay more. Ad-Nuke is probably one of 5 companies that I know that flags ads on Craigslist. They don't flag, the customer does, their system responds to the one button option and wait about 10 minutes and it done.

Anyway thought I correct my comment from yesterday.

I use Ad-Nuke on Craigslist as they do what they say, very happy

AUTHOR: oxfordu - (USA)


I wanted to respond to the person who made a complaint about Ad-Nuke as I am a Ad-Nuke customer. My story is not much to say is I think Ad-Nuke is great, I have 4 licenses and I am very pleased with their services. They respond to all there emails and any problem I had with them were resolved. At first flagging seemed within 1 to 3 hours the first month, then things starting getting faster and faster. Now I can flag ads and I would say in most cases they have gotten ads to about 10 minutes, its impressive and fast. I know how to flag ads using ips but having Ad-Nuke as a option I am pleased with them, really. I have no business making money on Craigslist, flagging ads does nothing for me or anything, I flag ads that hire illegal immigrants so I feel I am helping society from crooked businesses, so that's my reason I use Ad-Nuke. Anyway there's is other flagging companies out there but several do work at all with no refunds and they are some that do but Ad-Nuke, I can rely on them and I will continue to rely on them and will buy more licenses.

So they are not a report and they are an honest company, 110% satisfied.
