As a Buyer, What Should I Do if I Get Scammed on OfferUp?

If you’ve been scammed on OfferUp, the first thing you should do is request a refund directly from the seller. As a buyer, you have the ability to file a claim for any shipped purchase if there is an issue with your item.

If the seller does not respond to your refund request, or if they refuse to provide a refund, then you can file a claim. To file a claim, you will need to provide proof of purchase, such as a receipt or a screenshot of the transaction. You will also need to provide a detailed description of the issue, including photos or videos if available. Once your claim has been submitted, OfferUp will review it and provide a resolution.

What if I Don’t Get a Refund?

If you don’t get a refund after filing a claim, you may want to consider filing a dispute with your payment provider. Most payment providers, such as PayPal or Venmo, have a dispute process that allows you to dispute a transaction if you feel you’ve been scammed. If you file a dispute, you will need to provide proof of purchase and a detailed description of the issue. Once your dispute has been submitted, your payment provider will review it and provide a resolution.
