    Had to look it up.  I almost puked just reading the show description.


    About the Show

    A fresh take on the original "Joe Millionaire" dating series that took the world by storm in 2003, "Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer" features two incredible single men with one huge difference separating them: one is a millionaire, and the other is definitely not. Eighteen women date both of them, with no knowledge of which of their potential love interests is wealthy. As love connections are made and each guy finds his perfect match, the women must ask themselves what is more important: love or money.


    The reason I do not EVER watch TV right there.

    Won’t use it!  None of their business how I drive so long as I don’t have accidents!!


    With all the wacko drivers we have here, I frequently have to do evasive maneuvering and hard braking just to avoid accidents.  I don't want to be penalized for that.

    When I click on their links above, it takes me to their site, which I'm banned so I receive an "access denied" notice.  So, I can't read about what I might have done to receive their ire.  Oh well........

    Bet the seller filed a complaint against you 



    I don't think so.  The buying/selling platform is much like a chat room.  I chatted with the seller to come to an agreed upon price.  I asked her how I was supposed to pay for the shoes, since I've never been on the site before.  She said click on the link at the bottom that said purchase now and I did.  Gave them my CC info and it was completed.  Right at that point, a notice popped up in the chat window so we both could see, my CC transaction had been held and would be under review.  I assumed it was because that was my first purchase on the site.  The seller said not to worry, she would send the shoes as soon as my transaction went through.  It appears as though the transaction goes through the platform, not the seller.  I just checked my CC.  The transaction from Offer Up went through last night, and they refunded it this morning........

    What are the reviews on that site?



    Pretty highly rated.  I can't see much now since I've been banned but I wouldn't have attempted to shop with them if I had the slightest indication they were fraudulent.  The seller has been with them since 2018 and she was highly rated as well.

  6. I found a pair of shoes that are hard to come by on "OfferUp".  {It appears to be similar to EPrey, only it's supposed to connect buyers and sellers who are in the same vicinity, with the seller offering to hand deliver the purchased items.}  I chatted with the seller and she seemed real enough so I purchased the shoes.  She said she would put them in the mail as soon as my payment processed.  Great.  I should have them by next week.  


    WWWeeeeelllllllll, I get home from work today to find out my account with "OfferUp" has been suspended because I "violated their community guidelines".   What????  First time on the site, chatted with the seller to make sure she was legit and purchased a pair of shoes.  I can't imagine what I could have done to violate any guidelines.  They stated in their note that if I had a pending transaction to contact them.  I did and explained that I'm a mature adult wanting to purchase a pair of shoes.  If they let me buy the shoes, I will promise to never use their site again.  


    Any thoughts from our esteemed group?
