Pictures of the actual item

Level 4

I see posts where people could not be bothered to take a picture of the actual item they are offering.

 

Instead they copy and paste an image from Amazon or other online source.

It has happened to me a few times that I discovered that the condition of the item is not even close to how it is presented. Sometimes it is not even the same model or brand.

 

I consider this to be false advertising. I manage a few groups on Facebook and I  strictly forbid the use of stock- and marketing photo's.

 

May be OfferUp should implement that restriction as well.

I like this idea, though it might be hard to monitor every picture...

It's not allowed, some posts still get through though.
