If you go to the car sections and see a 2008 Honda Accord for sale for $1000 please report it. I was recently scammed by this so I have to protect everyone else on this app. The seller is going to ask you to email them instead of messaging them on offer up. DON’T DO IT. The seller gave me a bogus story about how her husband had lung cancer and she just wants to sell the car because it gave her bad memories and she wants to get rid of it. She’ll also say she got a free shipment of a vehicle so you don’t have to pay for shipping. They then give you a fake logistics site called Amazon Worldwide Inc. you send the payment through vanilla cards all cash. They even give you a fake tracking number and make it seem like it’s traveling to you from another state. When it’s close to you they’ll say the car need insurance and it’s $1000 more but you only have to pay half because the seller will pay the other half. Once the car is in your area. It won’t be delivered. And once you go back to the email to pull it up. It won’t pop up anymore and there will be an error in your browser. I’ve been trying to get into contact with customer service for OfferUp to tell them about this threat but it seems they don’t have a customer service number so I can talk to a human being. At this point I know it’s no way I can get my money back so I just want to warn everybody of this threat so it doesn’t happen again.
