The issue in GetHuman-racheada's own words
Purchase a truck. ... OfferUp posting was viewed on ********** and read that a current Sergeant in the US Air Force residing on AFB in Kansas and transferring to AFB in Alaska was selling a truck that would be shipped (free offer) through eBay and thus required payment through the use of eBay gift cards (mutiple $*** cards, totaling $****). Transaction agreement was not honored by seller. Listing was taken down later that day. Please advise on what further information you might require.
It was a scam, preying on buyers who are sympathetic to the struggles US Military Personnel face and who are willing to opt for the Servicemens payment & shipping methods in an effort to assist in their impending Base transfer.
Ideally, I would like the opportunity to confront the seller face to face and ask them what happened on there end of the transaction and where is my $****. I now know it isn't a misunderstanding, but a scam that they are still using.
I don't know if I am a "GOOD" customer, but I'm sure not bad or a liar*military imposter*scam artist. Also, I've been a customer * years now and have been on the level in all transactions through OfferUp.
Not yet. Still stings too much.
I have an issue with OfferUp too
