Oh my goodness - they asked to pay in pennies LOL!! That's great @Zamoraa1!

 

Yes, please block and report anyone that tries to pay/trade with weed! That is very much so against our policies!

@Zamoraa1 Welcome to the OfferUp Community forum,

Wow Zamoraa1 pennies lol! you totally did the right thing for sure blocking people offer you items against the guidelines.

The craziest experience I had selling one of my items was a new member asked to see my mountain bike before making me an offer. On showing up saying I’ll give you 400$ for a bike I was selling for 380$ his said it’s OfferUp right! After I stepped laughing I was in such a great mood I let them have it for 300$ lol! 😎🇬🇧🔚

@OldSchool3 Welcome to the OfferUp Community forum,

OldSchool3 I’m sorry to hear that,
I always recommend if your dealing in high value items or your not sure about the person you’re dealing with you should always meet at your local police station lobby. You can also find safe zone in your OfferUp app. I assume you’ve already reported this issue to your local authorities as well as OfferUp. So OfferUp can take the appropriate action on the persons account. And you’re local authorities can start an investigation. 😎🇬🇧🔚
