I have been locked out of my account because offerup is forcing me to verify to join truyou. This isnt right. I have spent over two years of building a perfect reputation and over 100 followers only to be forced to join something that is optional? I have not broken any terms of services, and my account prooves that people have nothing but positive things to say. Can someone unlock my account please? This is bull crap.
Your behavior has prompted the TruYou request from the automated security algorithm.
Your account will be useless until you join. There is no one that can help you here (even the forum mod. cannot make an exception on this matter).
If you still want to use OfferUp, you can opt to create another account (use a different device).
Yes, "user behavior" based on an objective set of parameters...hence, the algorithm.
OfferUp seems to use TruYou as a passive security measure/deterrent.
The ratings/feedback are subjective and easily manipulated, as there is no definitive distinction between "shipped' and "local/in-person" completed transactions. As of this post, it is still very too easy to create multiple accounts.
