“Fake users”


I can’t 100% prove it but I get messages from people who have not been active in multiple days or weeks. I think the app is looking at products that are not selling well and it sends automated messages from inactive accounts. The messages are asking questions like “ Do you have more pictures?” I always have at least 5+ pictures in my listings. When I ask what other pictures they want there is never a response. They ask “Can you give me more information?” I over explain each of my products to make sure that there is no confusion later in the process. But again when I ask what other information they are looking for, no response. I get the question are they being sold as a group or individually and in the listing it says “I am pricing/selling them individually.” Shocker no response from them either. I have yet to sell anything on here because the couple times I have had real interest the people don’t show up or they are expecting me to deliver a $15 product 30 miles from my house for free. Use a different app this one doesn’t seem to have an ethical setup!

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. It's always some disappointed for not getting a response from people who you thought to be a potential buyer. In this case, we would advise you to check if those messages were from the same people, if you feel being harassed, you can make a report by going the user's profile page, tap the three white dots on the right top corner and tap report. Our team would process it as soon as possible. Also if you need other assistance, please don't hesitate to send a message to and we'd love to help. Again thanks for sharing the information. :)

Fakes, Trash and Almost NO Real People

Verification Scam: As soon as you verify your phone number...get ready for 20 marketing calls to your phone number (even though they say they are just verifying you, they are really selling your phone number.)

Of all the local buying apps, like Let Go (many people, but all junk and no way to really filter) or Offer Up (nagging marketing notifications and email constantly), this one is The WORST. No one uses it so it's pointless. Bots and fake users are the only things on the app and I'm in a large city. Let Go has the most listings but it's the worst app. 5Miles has no listings, or almost none, and is also pretty terrible. At least you can better limit the search miles, which none of the others really do well, but there are just no users on this app so it's a waste of memory space on your phone.

Junk app. Useless.

Thank you for your feedback. In your case, I believe you may have enabled the button to allow to receive phone calls from 5miles officials. You will not receive any calls if you turn it off by going to your Profile, tapping Setting, then tapping Notifications and toggling off Courtesy Calls in the bottom. If you go verified the number, rest assured that the number will only be kept to yourself. 5miles will not reveal your number to anyone.

And basically, 5miles was created as a local transaction platform and it shows listings near to you. If you don't find enough listings near around, please set a wider range for distance and find the one you just need. Thanks again for your sharing, feel free to reach us at if you have any questions. We'd love to help! :)

No thanks, I'll use a different app


The profile photo upload is terrible. It won't center how you set it, and it has to be square or it's impossible to crop it correctly. Then, even when you do finally get it right (I had to go into a secondary app to crop my photo and then come back), it didn't center it as I had selected. It just showed the top left corner of the photo.

Also, you need my phone number for verification? No, I'm not doing that. I've had way too many problems with apps and services sharing my phone number, now I get spam and scam calls all day long. So, I'm sorry if I don't trust you, but I just don't trust the situation anymore. Furthermore, if you need my phone number and won't budge on that, fine. Could you tell me BEFORE I typed up my whole first ad and cropped all the photos of the item (keep in mind, I had to back out and use a secondary app to make them square first and then come back to upload them). That was terribly annoying and insulting that you would try to make someone feel "forced" to submit personal info once they've completed their ad.

I just started trying it out a few minutes ago, and you've already greatly annoyed me twice.

Thanks, but no thanks. I will not be using your service.

Developer Response

Thank you for sharing your idea on the profile photo upload and we'll make improvement on this feature. To secure each 5miler and their transactions, it requests phone number verification. But if you keep receiving spam and scam calls, there are 2 possible causes. Please check if you enabled to receive courtesy calls in the notification setting and check if your phone number was shared in any of your advertisement. By turning it off in the notification setting and taking off the number from ad, you would not receive any calls. Now a bit of good news-you don't need to crop photos any more to list an item. It supports photo upload directly without cropping any. Please try and feel free to reach us at for any questions. We'd love to help. :)
