Presumably your talking about a website or app here - can you say which one and add a few more details (browser, operating system, etc.)?

Could you provide an exact URL for a link that does not work? I'm in the UK and property on craigslist.org shows a small map based on OpenStreetMap data and a link to show a Google map. An example link for me is https://manchester.craigslist.org/reo/d/salford-the-warehouse-2-bed-apartment/7037578412.html .

Interestingly, at the bottom of the OpenStreetMap-based map is "© craigslist - Map data © OpenStreetMap". If you click on "OpenStreetMap" there you get taken to https://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright . Maybe for you the actual map is blank, and you're clicking on the copyright link?

If that's the case, you'll have to contact Craigslist - the maps on their pages are created by them, not by OpenStreetMap.org.
