#2 Consumer Comment

I don't know why they deleted my ad.

AUTHOR: Licensed Locksmith - (USA)

No, I have not contacted anyone at craigslist. I don't think I did nothing wrong. I listed my prices, my CCB number with my Oregon Locksmith number with links to the CCB web site so people looking at my ad could check on me or someone else to see if they are a real licensed locksmith in Oregon.

My ad was "Flagged", maybe by my competitors.


Oregon needs to change their Locksmith Law.

Below is part of Washington's New Locksmith Law:

Locksmith services is the selling, installing, servicing, repairing, repining, recombinating, and adjusting locks, safes, vaults, or safe deposit boxes; originating keys; operating, bypassing, or neutralizing locks, safes, vaults, or safe deposit boxes; creating, documenting, selling, installing, managing, and servicing master-key systems; unlocking, bypassing, or neutralizing locks for motor vehicles; originating of keys for motor vehicles; and keying or recombinating motor vehicle locks.

be at least eighteen years old;

be a citizen of the United States or resident alien;

not have been convicted of a crime in any jurisdiction;

satisfy the training requirements;

submit a set of fingerprints;

submit proof of compliance with insurance and bonding requirements;

submit evidence of successful passage of the written examination;

pay the required nonrefundable fee;

and other qualifications.

They don't give reasons for deleting ads...

AUTHOR: PugLover - (United States of America)

He can't ask craigslist why they removed his ad.  It just says the most common reason for removal is flagging by website visitors.  Have you ever tried to ask why your ad was removed?  I have.  I get postings removed all the time for no apparent reason.  I for one am glad this guy posted about locksmiths, because that is a SCARY thing!

So why did they remove your Add?

AUTHOR: Bubba Lee - (Canada)

Please tell us why your Advertisement was removed, I know they will tell you if asked.

I bet someone complained.

Common for flybynight operators to try to harm the competition by posting fake complaints.
