Someone is using OfferUp to run a scam on sending an Amazon gift card via a fake invoice through Amazon Auto Sales as she is out of the country on assignment from the government and cannot meet to do sale. I was lucky enough to investigate this after weird correspondence and this scam needs to be exposed so others are not ripped off!!!

The issue in GetHuman-eckerdaw's own words
Purchase car and the person was in the service and out of country. Had to complete sale via Amazon Auto Sales, Inc. Warning was on scam Warner's website the new one going around. Do not upload an Amazon gift card to the attached email. Tried to contact the need help chat And no one messaged me back. Raised my suspicions typed Amazon Auto Sales found it is the new kind of scam going around! People need to be aware asap I was lucky! And secondary smart to investigate. ... Attempted scamming on purchase of Acura TL on OfferUp listing.
That people are continuing to do this and cannot get a hold of OfferUp to end this dire situation! Don't upload anything and check scamwarners if not sure legit or contact OfferUp for assistance!
Verify everyone! And video conference to make sure it is the true person and identity that matches for signing up and emails.
I have bought and sold in OfferUp and find no need to scam people. We work to hard and try to make others safe and provide a service or product in a strictly professional manner.
