cash app how does it work?Watch this thread
Hi any help would be much appreciated i have applied for DSA and to get a laptop but its very expensive £1700-1800 so ive looked to buy independently and found same laptop for £500 off marketplace as ive never bought through marketplace the seller asked for payment through cash app and ive never used that. he said that its safe and hed only receive payment once i receive my item and ive marked as received to cash app is this correct?
BTW I don't know how DSA works, but I'd be v surprised if they would approve of this kind of purchase
A mins google brought up this
"Whether you’re hoping to score a purebred pup, a lease on a new apartment, or a concert ticket for a sold-out show, you should never agree to pay for it via Cash App. Scammers know that Cash App doesn’t provide buyer protection, so they are more likely to ask their victims to pay for fake items through the app. Once the unsuspecting users pay the fees, the fraudsters will disappear without handing over the items.
Cash App recommends not sending a payment to someone you don’t know and without verifying the item’s legitimacy" Readers Digest 2022
Thank you so much for your help . i have blocked this seller from everything as unfortunately he has my mobile number and name and made me download cash app i should've known better. when its cheap like that it seems too good to be true. i hope he doesn't use my number to scam me via cash app ive told cash app to delete my cash app account immediately
If trying to laptop shop on a budget maybe try somewhere like CEX? They offer warranties on used goods and a proper receipt while accepting standard payment options.
