Wecome to the Community Forums @Saidah. So, you've responded to verhicle ads that turned out to be scammers correct? We have many, many conversations that are readily accessible regarding these scammers as well as buying tips for those interested. Now, here's my question......did you flag and report these people to OfferUp? Because that is easier to do than finding this thread. And if you didn't you can't blame OfferUp. We're a growing community here trying to look out for each other. If everyone participates and shares this idea, the scammers space gets much smaller.
Are you able to recognize what attracted you to these particular ads?
Did you review their profiles? Do they have super low prices or many of the same ad?
How did these people "send" you this information...did you give them your email?
Listen, as @Marcinie stated scammers are everywhere so there is no one entity to blame. Someone tried to scam me on the street in Paris! Does that mean, I blame Paris? No, of course not. Take some time to search out the good information here before you look for a used vehicle anywhere!
Again, report this to OfferUp because it's all taken seriously.
