Define scammers please?

I only ask because many misinterpret scams for negative transactions upon meet up or common bad business practices (such as robbery or people cursing at you and upping price)

I've only come across one myself who asked for my e-mail to send a cheque.

Beyond that nothing.

Block / Report if anything.

Hi @Leifpell you get them on a lot of apps these days, yes there’s always people trying to ripoff honest people it really sad but it’s definitely getting worse, one being letgo, you will also get people trying to get your personal information like phone number or email address, be sure not to do so. I just say I’m sorry but I only message through the OfferUp messaging system, I know the OfferUp team is always working hard to stop this kind of behavior in the future. always report people doing anything against OfferUp guidelines, doing so keep everyone safer and cuts down on scammers - trolls - no shows - flakes and spam.
