I'm so delighted to say they took the posts down with the syringes in the photos. I'm glad offer up heard what I had to say whether or not she was an addict or diabetic, showing syringes is not very appropriate also especially with baby clothes. Smh

I would report the item just to make sure.

I might also add...
It is a health/safety violation if the make-up is not a new item and prohibited. In regards to the offensive material, all you can do is report this type of post as suspicious.

Actually the makeup is used on the bed. She's selling a tennis skirt. You can clearly see the syringe in the photos. Her legs are shown with needle marks on them. I reported it but it's still there. It's in 2 different posts. It's really disgusting. I wouldn't buy them knowing there's a needle a foot away filled with a substance. Gross!!

Selling used makeup is prohibited, but the other stuff in the described image is a "moral" judgment call.


Let me put it this way...What if she is a diabetic? Maybe she is now sober (no longer an addict). Who am I to judge the "context" of the images?


It's like the forum poster who vented that another OU user complained about her "dirty finger nails" within her images.

@factsdontcare  My wife is diabetic. She doesn’t have track marks on her body. But because we do gardening, we do have dirt under our nails at times.

@lightningx2   You made a good call. 


You missed the whole point. Maybe the person is no longer an addict? Track marks don't disappear overnight.

Your right, track marks don’t disappear over night just like they don’t stop over night. @factsdontcare   The point I was trying to make is diabetes shots aren’t like that.

They are fresh track marks. Not old. I can tell the difference. Also insulin isn't a light brown substance. It's clear. That's what I saw in the syringe. Both my parents are diabetics and use a needle and it's not the same kind. They used to use the kind with the orange cap. It's been years since they've used those kinds. They use a new kind now. Anyway I reported it. If it doesn't get taken down oh well. I know I won't be buying from this person.
