Should I be concerned about this?

So I listed an item on the Facebook market place a few week ago and had a man inbox me to ask if it was still available. He arranged to collect it this evening and never showed. He deleted his profile as soon as I sent him my address. I know this as I've had my other half search as I thought I'd been blocked originally. It's really unsettled me. My profile is on lock down and I only have actual people I speak to regularly on there so he only would of been able to see my profile and cover photo. Do you think I'm being anxious over nothing or should I be doing something or being extra cautious for a while?

Hopefully he has just blocked you because , he isn't coming for the item but doesn't want tell you he's let you down ?

You posted this exact threadthread on AIBU earlier.

What exactly do you find so worrying about it?

I did post it earlier and it only got one response which was to ask about my illetarcy. Hence the new post. What's the problem with that? It's quite clear that I'm anxious about this. I've given my address out in good faith to someone who wanted to purchase a router that I wanted to sell. They then decide not to show and to remove their actual profile from Facebook. I thought I had been blocked so wanted to make sure; hence why I asked my other half to check as this man would of shown in the searches if he had blocked me. I wish he had of done because that would of been less weird. Its shook me a bit and I don't know why so I've took to writing it here for some reassurance or a plan of action. I can't work out if I'm being over anxious or not to be honest.

Oh the irony. Illiteracy *

How can you know he deleted his profile as soon as he read your address? He could have deleted it at any time for any reason.

You seem unduly anxious. Maybe ask your DP to list items for you in future. flowers

Well he said he would collect at 6 and I tried to send a message at 6:10 and I couldn't for that reason. What reason does someone have to delete their profile? Its pretty bad manners to say you will show and then not without a message anyway. I am feeling very anxious tonight and I'm not usually an anxiety riddled person.

Is your OH listed as your OH on your profile? He may have blocked him too.

People do that kind of shit because they don’t have the balls to say “I don’t want to buy your item anymore”

I wouldn’t worry

No he isn't. He checked from his work profile. X

I'm not sure what your concern is?

Ah my mistake

That some random who feigned interest in an item I have for sale knows where I live but then disappeared.

OP is clearly concerned that she has given out her address to a total stranger who could be anyone and now knows where she lives. She is worried he is planning on robbing her or anything. She is worried it was a fake profile used to get addresses from women online for reasons we don't know.

OP I too would be concerned about this. I don't know what to suggest however other than just be a touch more wary

Thanks Sharron. I did check out his profile as his name was that of a well known football player. His profile picture looked average and he has a females Facebook connected to his with who he was supposedly in a relationship with so its worried me.
