I made an arrangement to purchase an item with a seller. His profile was backed by OfferUp claiming he was a verified seller so I believed it was a trust worthy seller.
The seller was only requesting 50% payment up front and the other half would be made once he had confirmation of shipping. Seller stated because it wasnt a full payment I could not make it in the app. Seller requested $300 payment via Apple Pay which I sent. Later that day he sent me a tracking number that was not legitimate.
He later confessed to me via text message that he never mailed anything out to me and he sent me a tracking number for another item he was sending to someone else. He agreed to return my money but then removed his OfferUp account and now the phone number is no longer a working number.
User's recommendation: OfferUp is not a trusted app. You cannot even speak to anyone over the phone. I made a report and never heard anything back from them. DO NOT USE THIS APP. It is full of SCAMS.
Monetary Loss: $300.
Preferred solution: Full refund.
OfferUp Cons: No help from offerup going after scammers, Advertise scammers as verified sellers.
