Hello, I've been a 'victim' of a very unusual scam where the seller agrees to meet the buyer (myself in all instances), and upon arriving at the agreed upon location the seller simply blocks buyer's number and does not show up.

gift card

Do NOT provide the gift card code to anyone who asks to "verify" the balance before hand, even if it has a PIN . Gift cards can still be spent without the PIN .
