This just happened to me! This is the email I've got from this "buyer": "Thanks you for the response according to the description, i am okay with the price and the condition posted on Offer Up.
I am ready to make instant purchase. My mode of payment would be in Cashier Check and i will arrange for a local pick up as soon as you get the check, because that is the only inconvenient means for me and due to my work frame i can not be able to get there and i promise everything will go smoothly. I really wish to be there to check out the item but i don't have chance cause am very busy person (US MARINE). Concerning the pick up, i will arrange for it after you receive the payment and it clears...
Pls get back to me with below info so that i can proceed with the payment immediately if you are selling to me. Full Name: Address: Not P.O.BOX City: State: Postal Code: Total amount for the item Phone Number: That i can send text Item Name : And as soon as this is provided, the payment will be send to you and i will let you know when its mailed out. Thanks and i hope we handle this in good faith while waiting to hear from you. i will add an additional $20 so that you can hold it for me till the check reach you.
Best Regards" Something in my guts told me not to trust this guy. So I won't contact him anymore. He has not contacted me after I replied that I only take cash. Beside, He didn't want to use the app only by email.
I'm sorry this happened to you. Hope this post will help other sellers to avoid scammers.
