Hi, My husband was just scammed $3000 on offer up. They posted a car for $2000 and sent a fake Amazon Payment logo claiming that the payment will be done thru Amazon Payments.
The person then called and instructed him to go to Walmart and pay to Andrew Solomon in Georgia. After he sent the payment, they said the shipment was on the way. The next day, they sent another email saying another $1000 was needed for insurance. My husband sent the $1000 through Money Gram.
After the money was picked up all phone calls went unanswered. We reported it to Offer up and our local police and so far no one has done anything about it.
