Craigslist is an online advertising website, but the increased use of spam advertising has caused the company to tighten its security requirements. Currently, you are not allowed to place ads unless you have a landline or cell phone that can be verified. VoIP numbers are not accepted by Craigslist because they can be changed easily and frequently, making it a popular phone choice for a spammer. If you have VoIP as your phone – only option , you can still advertise on Craigslist , but you must use an indirect method.
