@Donji--Hello & welcome to the OfferUp Community Forums!! Whenever someone sends you a message, wants your personal information, to communicate outside of the forums, offer extra money for an item is a scam, & the person should be reported right away:
I think people have a right to voice their opinion no matter the subject. The second amendment is the right to bear arms but remember the first is freedom of speech. I get your point but still...(edit: this was in response to the person who kept arguing with others about their right to carry their guns when I don’t think anyone even was trying to battle them on it).
Your are absolutely right! Too many people feel comfortable to meet up just anywhere to get a sale. My son sells electronics on here and is bombarded with people who dont seem to give much thought about possibly being robbed,injured, or worse. My advice to him and what I do myself is meet up in the parking lot of any local police department! I was once in an area years ago and couldnt find their police department so I walked right into the bank and completed my sale there. I think these are probably 2 of the safest places to meet where video surveillance is probably functional. I went to a branch that I bank at and made the deposit immediately just in case there were any pull over attempts when I left the area. Hope this helps! Be safe everyone.
