Payment methods VS Scam/Spam

SOLVED
Level 2
Hello Friends, I can say I am brand New to OfferUp App. I like this app and It help me sell or give free items to my local people. First, I want to say thanks to all of you that are following me. Also to Warn you, Please be ALERT about Scams/Spam. I have noticied lots and lots of Fake accounts from people just sending you Offers, This people are asking for your Paypal ID or offering to send you money via western Union. I do not know what OfferUp is doing about this users accounts but they should be deactivated asap. The best way to avoid this fake users is by reporting them and after you report them, do not forget to block them. The easies way to find out if the message is coming from someone that want to scam/spam you is when they directly Offer you other payment methos, extra money, their account are not confirmed by OfferUp, no profile photo and not TrueYou verified.

Thanks Smiley Happy
