Annoying Craigslist Spam

so i posted a listing for a pair of headphones
been getting the same reply spams from random people left right and centre..probably a bot
this is happening even after deleting the post
how do i resolve this? E-mail suffix is always different so I can't simply block

Use a different name and e-mail for craigslist. It's going to be spammed eventually if you sell a decent amount of stuff on craigslist.

Try contacting CL and give them the list of email addresses. They should be able to trace back the CL accounts and delete them.

I have had my fair share of various CL scams and spams and they have always been very helpful.
