OfferUp cannot control how one person behaves, nor can OU screen individual motives. It is up to the buyer to make an informed decision.
The seller did not violate any laws and can even feign ignorance if you get lucky enough to find this seller.
There is no judge that will sign off on a warrant/subpoena on this type of case, so Irvine PD (as nice and cooperative they might be from my personal experience) will not be able to help you, even if there is a Detective that is wlling to take the case, as by law...OU cannot release the seller's info without a warrant/subpoena. This is the "catch 22" dilemma.
