Fake Offers

Level 9
Dude this:

"I have looked up other sites and I have found my photo's used on another site."

Was upset when this happened to me.

I made my own images for a service I offer, even watermarked it.

I told the guy that we did business differently and I didn't want his customers coming to me if they had a bad experience.

You have to make them come to you. No meeting up 10 miles away. If they really want it they will come to you, or nearby at a public place.

@slrzYou are absolutely right, that's why, I think I said, there are good and bad interactions from both seller and buyers. If I didn't, I deeply apologize for that ommission.
Level 4
@goblin,I am so sorry that happened to you
Did you ever check on where else you found them? Maybe they were brother/sister corporations? Were you listed as seller at secondary site. If it never happened here, be assured, I don't think it would ( but that is an affirmation for mngmnt, not myself).
Level 1
I am getting offers wanting me to email them more pictures and telling me they will send me a bank check
All I need to do is give them my name, address and phone number
Once it is cashed they will get someone to meet me
I got 3 of these
Do they really think I don’t know it is the same person??😝
Level 1

I got two of these today. The person said that he will send movers to pick up the item along with a certified bank check. All I need to do is give my name, address, phone number and final amount. 


Sounds pretty fishy to me. No thanks.

@roseyhope  Good grief......NO!  Typical scam.   Do NOT take cashiers checks, or checks.   Cash only.   Never agree to that kind of an arrangement it is a SCAM.   Sheesh some people annoy the crap out of me.   As I get older, I am less tolerant of the nonsense of others.    Why can't people act respectable, get a real job, instead of doing illegal shady things to earn money.    I have young sons,  I would be mortified if my sons ever conducted themselves this way.    I want my sons to be respectful,  caring, productive people in life.   Not shady criminals, or self entitled brats.

idk if anyone else had this problem but someone just messaged me and said they wanted to buy what i was selling, and i asked them when they would be able to pick it up, and then they asked for my number ? i told them there was no reason for that, we can communicate through offer up, i just found that odd.
Level 9
@Cheff Just tell them sorry it is against the OfferUp guidelines.
I communicate through this app only and check it often.

Still interested in the item?
If so I have ______day or ______
available. Could be a potential scammer. Did you check out their profile first?
