Craig's list problem

I have a number of ads in craigs list. I received an email from them a few days ago saying they had locked my account and it could be any of several reasons which they listed. In perusing the list I cannot see how I violated any of the things they listed.

Their email said to follow a link to restore my account but it did not work.

I tried to respond to the email but it will not allow a response.

I am at a loss as to what to do next.

Can anybody give me a tip?

F*** 'em (and their Fleabay management) with a sharp stick, and create an account with a different verified phone # if they need one. Google Voice, Vonage, friend's #, payphone, prepaid SIM. Be creative.

Was there any reason to believe that this was a legitimate message from Craigslist? As opposed to, say, a phishing e-mail?

Craigs list did not allow me to renew my ads last time so it seems my account is locked down.

I have another email address i can use. But if I don't know what triggered this lock out I will probably run into it again.

Does anybody know how to have an actual interchange with a human being or a way to communicate by email with them?

I believe there is only a staff of 30 people working at craigslist so I think it's almost impossible to interchange with them.

Short answer, No. Its all automated. Happens to most people who use craigslist frequently such as car dealers.

You have to start over, and come back to the account months later.

Thanks. This is what I feared. In your experience can you figure out what you did wrong usually when they complain?
