PayPal & CashApp for Facebook Market

I’m trying to sell my old iPhone on FB Market and I’ve gotten a couple messages from people asking me if I use Cash App or PayPal instead of paying through Facebook’s payment system.

How does this scam work? I thought Cash App and PayPal usually tend to be pretty secure?

    Nope, always stay on platform. They’ll likely send you a fake email claiming to be from cash app/paypal and say that the money is pending until they get a tracking number. This is completely fake as these companies do not offer this service. You also can’t report their Facebook account now for scamming so they keep scamming others.

  2. Not if those accounts were hacked. Once the account owner reports the hack, you lose the money.

    Never go off platform. On Facebook marketplace, the only way to be sure the buyer is real is meet in person (I recommend the police dept) and accept cash only. Marketplace is a scammers paradise. And there are a lot of scams being used on it.
