How to Get a Post Off of Craigslist That You Didn't Post But Is About You (4 Steps)
By Robert Schrader
Navigate to the ad in question. Double-click in your "Address Bar," then right-click and choose "Copy."
Click the "Help" button in the lower left corner of the Craigslist homepage. Choose "Contact Us" from the bottom of the General Help menu.
Click the circle next to "Harassment" and then enter your name, email address and location. Type "911" as the subject. Paste the URL of the ad into the "Describe the Issue" field and explain, very briefly, why the ad should be removed. Click "Send Email Message."
Respond promptly if Craigslist contacts you for additional information. Otherwise, keep an eye on the ad and wait for it to be removed. Craigslist does not give an estimate of how long it might take to remove an abusive ad.
