Not resolved

Received an OfferUp message from a certain Hellen. She said, my uncle is interested with the item if still available but he does not have an OfferUp account. Please email him at

So, I emailed the address and told the address to contact us directly at the phone number I provided.

I then returned to OfferUp to contact Hellen. Guess what, just after 10 minutes, the account was no longer there AND we never received an email or call from the uncle.

EMAIL PHISHING!!! Never ever respond to similar request. I will admit, I was unsuspecting. But will never do it again.

Watch out people.

I received the same email today.


Same person offered to by my bunkbeds. He was sending me a cashiers check for more than my beds.

He wanted me to put the check in my account and send him the rest. Shame on him.

I received a similar request. From some guy saying that his uncle was interested and for me to email him....

uncle says he's trying to purchase item, will send certified bank check of payment.

Once it clears will then come pick it up......

Do you think this is the same thing????
