This is so true and I truly always keep this is mind. I also tell someone where i'm going and give them the buyers information, sometimes even the license plate when I arrive just in case.... you never know even nice people can be dangerous.

You right it’s scsry!
There was a guy off offer him and his wife was selling a I- phone they meet this young man he had his home boy with him
As well at that time
He snatched the phone out of the mans hand and took off!
He drove a car away behind him
Weather the young man had a gun I do not know but the young man was acting like he were reaching for something under his shirt ,,, the man or his wife started shootings they were in fear !!
Weather he had a gun or not he acted like he did!! And his wife is pregnant!!!!
They were terrified!!!!
And they were from Tampa
Now this 16 year old boy is DEAD from making a bad choice!!
And his friend took off running!!!
I hope this is a lesson learned to his friend..
I have been tried like this on offer up as well .. I have a cell phone that I were selling for 40.00 the guy wanted to meet on silver star road after I ask can we meet at the police station he said No
Let’s meet tonight over here on silver star!
REALLY???? I’m not stupid!

You are right !!
When they refused to meet at the police station!! I know they full of cramp!!
I don’t take chances .. especially when they say can we meet tonight ?
I tell them I don’t get out at night !!

I agree, I prefer to meet anywhere but someone's house. Fortunately I've only purchased or sold small items, I prefer to meet at a local Starbucks or even in front of the sellers house.

Well I’m a true-u member
On offer up someone stole a family member driver license.- that family member who license were stolen did go get more driver license
But the person that stole them use them on offer up to sell stolen items!
Right now they still don’t know who it was that stole the license!!!
They made a mistake and left them in someone car ... the person found them
They said they mailed the driver license to the address!! I don’t know!
But to make a long story short , we all have to be careful and don’t let our guard down
They may not pay what they owe!
But they will reap what they sow!’my grandmother always told me!!
