Why did I receive an email from Kijiji with a random mix of numbers and letters?
How do we “hide” an email address?
We did it on purpose! In order to protect your email from spam, phishing attempts, or fraudulent replies, we’ve hidden your email address to protect your privacy. Reply as you normally would!
We replace the sender’s personal email address with a unique, anonymous email address. (We promise we won’t make you memorize it!) This is what it will look like: (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com):
Why does my email address look normal when replying to some users, but not others?
Kijiji users with a business account have been carefully vetted to make sure they’re legitimate. When you reply to a business listing (or a listing in the "Jobs" category), we’ll show your full email address. This allows those users to confirm the identity of repliers, and begin their correspondence on the right foot.
