OfferUp Fake Buyers

By now most of us have herd of OfferUp. A cool brand with a cool way to sell merchandise online. So I decided to try it. After signing up I posted 2 laptop ads. Both ads had 5 photos, a title and description. After 5 mins of posting I had buyers sending me offers. Cool right? Listen, I know my ads look good, but that was faster it should have been… I responded as soon as the low ball offers arrived, but no one responded to me. After an hour my inbox was full of spam from OfferUp’s fake buyer accounts. Must have been 20 fake buyers.

Beware of OfferUp!
