Again, there is no CraigslistSafe verification service. is not a dating site, it's just a scam used to sign you up for porn sites and the scammer who owns gets a commission for each person he signs up. Anytime a site asks to use your credit card to verify your identity, it's a scam like this one.

They do not provide any dating service or verification service. There are no site members for you to meet. If you give these sites your credit card number to verify your identity, what will actually happen is that you will be signed up for porn sites. You can verify this by

We're back! And we have a new blog!

Finally, our blog has been restored! It took more than two weeks, but here we are again. For those of you who don't know, this blog was flagged by Blogger's spam-prevention robots as being a possible spam blog. We received the following message when we logged in to our Blogger account on February 12th and tried viewing the blog.
Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog. (What's a spam blog?) Since you're an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog. Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.

We received your unlock request on February 12, 2011. On behalf of the robots, we apologize for locking your non-spam blog. Please be patient while we take a look at your blog and verify that it is not spam.

Luckily we had a backup of the blog saved on disk and we were able to create a mirror of it over at Wordpress. That blog is Craigslist Scams.

But even so, two weeks to have our blog restored is much too long of a wait as far as we're concerned. Also, there's the possibility that our blog might get flagged again. On the Blogger help forums there is someone who complained that this happened to him three times! A situation like that is just not acceptable, so we've decided that from now on, our Wordpress blog Craigslist Scams will be our primary blog and that this one will the backup. We will post are articles over at Craigslist Scams and also post them here, but we will no longer accept comments on this blog; all comments that you wish to make on any of the posts on this blog should be made on the matching posts over at Craigslist Scams.
