I purchased from a user on offerup his name was Austin morlan, he had 33 sold items, said he was from Louisville Kentucky, he was selling items of Xbox series x, ps5 and ps5 digital
We had conversation over iMessages for purchase of Xbox series x I paid by Apple Pay, we made a deal that I pay half now and pay other half when it came, never did I pay second half because i received the item but all it was ramen noodles, the package shipped out of postal service in Dayton Ohio

Offerup or online seller scam

  • Monetary Loss: $500
Purchased something from an online buyer from offer up
Paid $500- he wanted $1000 but said to pay $500 now and he’ll ship it and I’ll pay the $500 after shipping.
Sounds like a good deal right? He sent me a shipping receipt with a tracking number but the tracking number never updates and it was supposed to be delivered on Sunday the 31st of January and up to today which is the 5th if February it never came and no updates.
I’m upset I lost my money but I also want this seller to be exposed so that he doesn’t scam anyone else on the internet.

I found someone on OfferUp for a job I needed done to my car and since it was so cheap compared to other places I accepted the deal so the morning he comes with another dude and we get the talking and as he’s working On My door he says he has to go get some more tools and I didn’t think nothing of it since he was already working on my car so I went ahead and gave him the $300 and since then he hasn’t picked up any of my calls. I was able to get his license plate for anyone that needs it. I am actually filing a report today so hopefully all goes well. Not only did I pay for a half ass job I had no choice but to go to another body shop and charged me $500 so should get car back within a few days.

I was almost scammed

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I was looking to purchase a vehicle on offer up. Came across a deal that was too good to be true by someone claiming she needed to sell quickly becuase she was to be deployed on april 15th. I decided to investigate further becuase she wouldnt stop pressuring me to complete the transaction. I came across this scam site after looking up he email address, which im thankful for. It helped solidify what I already suspected in that it was a scam all along. so there will be no transaction.
