Bologna, I verified my number 2 x and I still can’t message! I’ve signed out, uninstalled, restarted my device, reinstalled, signed back in, go to message a seller to make a purchase and it wants me to Verify my number again. So I did, Twice! Still can’t message! I then went an extra step thinking if I did the TruYou verification that would help, no it didn’t. Please verify your number. What’s going on? I'm verified as much as I can be, including my Facebook is attached, you know everything about me and I still can’t message a seller! Fix you system please, I’m losing money daily, I buy here and sell the items and I haven’t been able to message in weeks now!

I always put this message in my ad of every item. "I only communicate thru OfferUp messenger so please don't give me your contact info and don't ask for mine!" If they ask for my number or give me mine, I tell them to refer to the second paragraph of my ad or simply "I rather communicate via OfferUp messenger". I do not give out my number for several reasons. Other to guard my identity (to ward hackers), but I generally get very annoyed with pointless phone calls when text messages are sufficient enough, especially for this app. Giving out my phone number creates unnecessary annoyance plus back and forth conversations without any fruit (this has happened to me several months ago when I was dumb enough to give out my phone number). I canceled the sale because he was very indecisive with his decision plus he kept calling my phone and sending a FaceTime requests when I told him to just text me. Even those that may not be hackers or scammer cannot respect my rules or OfferUp rules. Yesterday, I canceled a sale with some kid because he wanted to trade sneakers and asked for my number. Mind you that I advise those that want to trade to have thier sneakers posted on thier OfferUp up page and I am not doing business offline. I told him that since he can't follow the rules and did not read my ad, I'm no longer interested in trading and I blocked/reported him.
