Have you just discovered that your Classified phone verified accounts are no longer verified? It seems that Classified has thrown a wrench into the works and randomly disabled verified accounts. What does this mean? It means that you may log onto Classified and go to post with your account only to find that you need to phone verify it once again. The logic behind this was they are attempting to stop spammers.
For sometime Classified has been trying to stop people over using or abusing Classified. The introduction of phone verified accounts was believed to put an end to this, but it hasn’t. They’ve continued to fight spam and on occasion disable and block certain phone number ranges. This has failed and their latest trick was to simply make everyone who recently verified their accounts to re-verify. How do you know if this affects you? Just login and try to post an ad in the Services or any other section and you’ll see if you need to phone verify once again.
If you’ve been hit by this latest Classified move and find your phone verified accounts are on hold, what can you do? Luckily you can just use the same number again. Your old number isn’t dead, so there should be no problem using it again to re-verify your account. You can also use another number. If for whatever reason you have lost your old number, just use a new one to re-verify your account.
Using Classified phone verified accounts is only getting harder. Make sure that you know how to best use your PVA and avoid the common pitfalls and traps many people fall into.
