Many of the ads that weren't from scammers were from prostitutes.The ads are so obvious that it's surprising the euphemisms are effective in fending off law enforcement.At 52 I am having a hard time proving who I am and how old I am to online women, most believe me but some need verification and I can not blame them lots of wierdos online. guy's message above, have had a heck of a time with third world based spambots from Craigslist Personals trying to rope-a-dope me into this age verification con, all I can say is after having been on Craigslist for a week and a half, I've had anywhere from 30-50 of these kind of bogus verification sites pushed at me, and every one of them are scams, it is also long since proven by security experts that a credit card doesn't verify anything in terms of majority age status or a clean criminal history. Many people use Craigslist to find roommates, cheap furniture, used cars or part-time jobs. I decided to dive into Craigslist's "Casual Encounters" — a section made for no-strings hookups — to see if any of what I assumed about that virtual place was true.Then again, maybe they Amidst all those failures, I had one near-success.A woman wrote in response to my sweet "cuddling first" ad saying she was in town for only a couple of months, and that she was frustrated she couldn't find a relationship.
All the responses I got from real people on my first day weren't from women — they were from men.Following that, I interviewed two women to learn how they used the site successfully for their own fulfillment.I began with a listing announcing myself to the women of my city.One responded: "Really man, can be cool and relaxing." I began to suspect that no women actually used the site.The stereotype is that women are interested in relationships, and that only men would be interested in totally casual sex, right? In fact, I was inspired to write this article when a friend told me many of her female friends had owned up to using it. I was only getting messages from gay or bisexual men!
