I’ve had a couple of these where the buyer asks for the address upfront without committing to a pickup arrangement, and sometimes without making an offer. They always have good ratings though.

    I felt suspicious of this guy, so first I told him a general area, thinking maybe he just wanted to know how far the drive would be. Then when he asked for a specific address, I gave him the address for the local sheriff near my home. I did not hear back from him after that.

    Another thing that was suspicious to me was that the guy is 40 minutes away. Doesn’t make sense to drive all that way for a $5 plant.

    I’m stingy with my address. I don’t give it until they are ready to come and meet. Past exprience with giving someone the address, they no-show. Then give address to someone on their way and the first guy shows up pissed later that item is gone. Most of my stuff for sale is at a separate propery and pole-shed so I don’t like people sniffing around when I’m not there.

    Send him to the nearby police station if he’s so serious about it.

    The account is either hacked or bought, or the good ratings come from other hacked/bought accounts.

    I only ever give out my address once we’ve figured out a price and estimated day/time they will be over to collect.
    That way I give them a chance to hit me with courier pickups, zelle payements, etc.
    Plus I don’t want to say I’m selling something, give my address and find they can only come when I am not in.

    I do try and be flexible, if comfortable I tend to say I work from home, any day is fine. Please let me know when you can come and I’ll send my address. That way, they know my house is normally occupied and not worth it for a scammer to chance it.
