Default Any way around Craigslist Phone Verification?

I have a couple ads running and one of them, when I went to renew, Craigslist demanded phone verification. I do not want to give them a phone number, so the ad won't renew. Any way around this?

Put in the phone number of a coworker and then ask them tomorrow what the verification code is. Easy PEZe

That is a new scam , if you type it into google as stated above it will show it is not from Craigslist. Also the google phone code scam. And the Craigslist download scam for voice mail . Other is shipping with over payment.

Agree. I have never had to add a phone number I list things weekly.

I posted the ad and then CL sends you a verification email. You click on the link and then a new browser tab opens and CL has you accept the terms of service. Once I clicked 'accept', then this phone verification screen pops up.
