Christopher Lawell said in his explanation that he has “not posted on Craigslist more than 1 ad per month (probably longer) in years.” Could this be because he hires others to post for him? On the site Freelancer.co.nz there is a user who goes by the name of VegasChris. His profile states that he is with the company CLI in Henderson. He has posted some interesting ads.
On 1/14/2010, he posted an ad looking for a CL, BP and other classified sites poster.
Want an experienced poster for Backpage and Craigslist. MUST be experienced and able to successfully post on both sites.
Will compensate based off responses. Starting at $75 per 1k, will pay more based off the quality of conversions.
Posts are for NSA (W4M) ad category. You must provide ad content and forward replies to specific email address I provide in real time.
Will test work with a daily payout. Would like to escalate to a regular weekly order with successful traffic.
Being able to drive traffic from additional classified sites a plus.
He later posted a similar ad on 1/19/2010. Earlier, he was looking to buy 5000 Hotmail accounts, and the last ad he posted was for a ghost writer for articles about iGaming, the industry in which Chris Lawell says he does his internet marketing business.
There’s another VegasChris on the web who places ads for Craigslist posters, VegasChris of MoneyMakerDisscusion.com. He used to use the name AnitaJohnson. This old version of his MMD profile is still in Google’s cache. To see that this is an old version of VegasChris’ profile, hover over the link labelled Find All Posts and look at the browser status bar. You’ll see that the userid for the profile is 61348, the same as the userid for VegasChris. (Click the image to enlarge it.)
When you click on the link to InCorp Entity Structuring in the cached profile’s signature, you are taken to InCorp.com, a company in Henderson, Nevada.
So this VegasChris also has a Henderson, Nevada connection and could very well be the same person as the other one.
On 4/26/2010, the MMD VegasChris posted the thread Looking for a craigslist poster.

Can be creative when it comes to compensation. Would consider pay per post or JV per sale.
dating in W4M section. Possibly other areas.
Please pm me for discussion.
What both of these guys (and they’re probably the same person) are doing here is hiring people to spam the dating sections of Craigslist with fake ads. This is done to promote real dating sites, or to promote fake dating sites used to trick people into signing up for porn sites, and sometimes to promote just plain upfront porn sites.
