It's a common scam on this app. Dont do it.

Never ever deal with anyone asking you to communicate outside of the app messaging. Phone, email, text, or otherwise. It is always a scam.

@Stiha81 Welcome to the OfferUp Community forum,

Stiha81 I agree with aidenholley and RevivalGypsy, OfferUp always highly recommend keeping your messages within the OfferUp messaging system. like you said you smell a rat, if you think something is not right definitely follow your gut feeling and don’t go through with the deal.😎🇬🇧🔚

@Stiha81--Hello & welcome to the OfferUp Community Forum!! Explore the different forums, & share your thoughts and ideas!!

If a person is not interested in communicating with you directly, & not through the OfferUp app, then that's a tell sign that doesn't seem right. Always trust your gut instincts & you'll go a long way!! Most importantly, have fun!!
