@EJMills513--Many people on Offer up are eager to buy & or sell their items & try to add to their profile by adding items to sell or trade. Then down the line may establish their email, phone number, photo to their account. There are many great people I've met along the way who may just have an email confirmation; doesn't define their character. It's important to look at buyers and sellers based on meeting them interacting, etc. I hope this helps!! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!!
