Offerup - Review in Auctions and Internet Stores category

45 of 477 Offerup reviews

I received an offer from someone named Nevin Eldin who also emailed me outside of the OfferUp site.The items totaled 550.00 and he wanted to add $30 holding fee in addition.

He sends me a certified check one for 1500 and the other for 2000.00. I questioned him and he said to deduct what I owe him and send the rest to a wade yoshii in Augusta Ga. I got suspicious and googled wade yoshii and found another complaint. I contacted the police.

I have the money but refuse to use it. Chances are it will come back fraudulent and I'll owe the bank 3500! Do not trust anyone who emails you outside the site.

I'm terrified and a nervous wreck.Filing a police report

Did this happen to you twice? Another reverie had the same ending. "Called police... and nervous wreck."

You will be very lucky if your bank doesn't close your account for having cashed the obviously fake checks and make it very difficult to open another bank account for years to come.
