The flip side however, is that a seller Tabitha told me she would knock off $100 for a ring I was interested in. She said she could not take the original offer I made her due to the fees with OfferUp so if I paid her through pay pal she could take less. That sounded legit to me and we had several texts back and forth- mother of 6 yr old. Anyway told me she would send the ring next day through FedEx. I paid her through pay pal and now it is a week later and she will not return any emails or text from me. I contacted pay pal which I thought would protect me but it appears they do not cover personal purchases such as this. I am heading to file a police report on Monday. My suggestion is to only use OfferUp to pay for items.
