Someone tried to scam my friend... please read

So, someone bought a working item from my friend on OfferUp, claimed it was broken and demanded a refund, then tried to sell the same item on OfferUp for more than he bought it for from my friend... with no mention of it being broken! The scammer even threatened my friend with the police if he didnt get a refund (no refund was given). Once the scammer was busted out by my friend, the scammer conveniently removed his posting. I did report the scammer and so did others. Can I post his username and location to warn others?
