Not resolved

My 16 year old son seen a 2002 jeep cherokee for 1500 that he liked.Made contact with the owner purchased the vehicle and was completely taken advantage of.

The vehicle was completey a waste of time and money . The radiator was bust, tires were ball, passenger side window rolled down and won't roll up. Possible engine change with no receipt or proof from the seller after they promised him proof would be provided. Title my not be clean not registered in the state of purchase.

Vehile has not been driven dince date of purchase 11/1/16. Mafe several attempts to contact the seller to reolve tbe issue and have not been able to reach them phone goes straight to voice-mail. We would like the money for the purchase price of 1500 back for the vehicle and tbe seller should be banned from any future transactions on your site.

We are also making a complaint with the BBB regarding this.Not sure jow to file a comaint with tbe local police department however we're working on it.

Why on earth did you buy the car? Sounds like you didn't even investigate anything with the vehicle. How is this Offerup's fault?
You should always take a used vehicle to a mechanic before purchasing. Unless there is a written warrenty all ssles are as is. Buyer beware. Judge judy would say everything good the seller told you about the car is called puffing.

you have to check things out first especially with a car. what you listed could have been detected before buying the vehicle

Post any information on what you find out with the BBB. There needs to be a class action suit against offer up. I was scammed of $750.

In order to win a lawsuit against offer up you would have to prove they did something wrong. If you were scammed that is the fault of the person who scammed you not offer up.

In order to win a lawsuit against offer up you would have to prove they did something wrong. If you were scammed it is the fault of the scammer, not offer up. They probably have something in their terms and conditions that you have to agree to before posting something that says they arent responsible.
The problem is all vehicle sales are "as is" unless you've signed a document saying otherwise or it clearly states it comes with a warranty. Why wasn't the vehicle taken to a mechanic before purchase? When the transfer of sale was signed, you didn't read the title? This is really your fault. Sorry to say. As for the tires being bald....didn't you look at the tires?? They are right there, easy to view. The police won't help you, it's a civil matter and the seller did nothing wrong. It's your responsibility to have the vehicle checked by a licensed mechanic prior to purchase as well as its your responsibility to look over all the cars documents. You failed. The cars yours now! Lmao. I'm also not sure what you expected for a car that age and that price either. Smh

It's your job to properly inspect a vehicle before purchase. Unless your state doesn't have "as is" laws you have little recourse other than small claims court.
