I got a very disturbing and possibly life changing message.

What the heck does that mean? Are they going to start charging for all ads? Anyone else get this?

I hope that was someone's idea of a sorry Christmas prank. 

 

Santa might get them for that.

Never have figured out how they could do anything with no income. No ads that I know of, No charges, listings all over country. Did they offer DELUXE listings for a few dollars more and maybe you clicked on them by mistake?  I don't use often, but have had things on there.  There was no notice on any pages I've seen of changing to charging mode. Not sure I've EVER seen an actual HOME page for the system.

They charge for extra pictures and for commercial listings, I believe. The message does not appear to pertain to private party or 'by owner' listings.

I just tried to post and got the same message.I was however able to re post an old ad at no cost.

 

I think the $5 and $10 might be an error.

Huh,dunno. No where in there is a charge list for Farm and Garden. Hope it's a mistake.

I'm betting it's an entry error at craigslist of some kind, as I don't see fees for any types of private sales.At least we now know how they keep the lights on as before finding that I didn't know of any fees

I believe when posting he accidently hit the farm and garden by dealer option. There are two options, one by individual and one by dealer, many dealers pose as individuals to avoid the cost, and once in a while a individual can hit the wrong buttom and pick dealer.
