Selling things that you are no longer using or have no use for at home is a great way to make some extra cash. For years, people have held yard sales or garage sales and displayed their items for people to walk in and purchase. Saturday and Sunday mornings are busy in neighborhoods across New York State even in 2022. But one of the most popular ways to sell things these days is happening online.

Facebook Marketplace is a great way to reach people who are looking to buy the things you want to get rid of. But beware, there are some people who are looking for more than just a good deal.

According to reports, a New York State resident was the victim of a robbery involving a customer on Facebook Marketplace.

Onondaga County deputies say they've arrested a 15-year-old boy who allegedly robbed a woman during a Facebook Marketplace sale. The woman agreed to meet the suspect in a parking lot to sell him an iPhone. When the woman approached the teen, he grabbed the phone out of her hand and pushed her to the ground before running away.

It's just another reminder to not travel alone and meet in a safe place for your transactions. Many municipalities have designated areas for those who are buying or selling online to meet to do the exchange of cash and items. If you are having a stranger come to your home to buy something, it may be a good idea to have other people there to keep things safe as well.
