Hey OfferUp fam, I recently had a transaction with my buying a Nintendo Switch that was advertised with 4 games. I offered $300 for the whole package, and the seller accepted. I met the seller in a bar parking lot of her choice, and we began our transaction. She told me 3 games were downloaded on the switch, which I found fishy, and that everything was inside the Macy's bag. I handed her the money, and began to look at the items while she counted the money. There was one cable in the whole bag that was visible, so I asked and it was supposedly a charging cable. I went to my car with a charging outlet and tried it but it didn't fit the console. I attempted to tell her but she said that it was the wire. I said no again and she said that that's not her wire. That she has an iPhone. This confused me, and I attempted to get the money back. She goes inside and gives the money to her brother that I found out in another message on OfferUp. I threatened to get the police involved and she says her brother is a cop at the local police department. I have a picture of her license plate. I have no clue if I can even do a police report on this incident. I was obviously a part of a fraudulent transaction. I filed a complaint through OfferUp, and she listed her item as sold to another buyer to keep her rating high. Is there anything else I could possibly do to help my situation?
