GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Greenville police said there have been four robberies in the past week involving the “Offer Up’ and “Let Go” applications.
The two apps help sell people used goods.
Greenville police Chief Mark Holtzman said the problem starts when people meet to buy and sell the goods.
“When that takes place, you need to really make sure you’re on solid ground,” said Holtzman. “You’re comfortable where you’re doing that, you’re not going to their house, you’re not going to their neighborhood. You’re certainly not getting drawn down some side street. And a real big clue is if they tell you to meet you at one place, and then they quick change it to a second place, drive away.”
Holtzman said if you’re using the apps meet people during the day and in a populated area.
