MOBILE, Ala. (WRKG) — Mobile Police are warning you about the dangers of not using a safe-exchange zone when buying and selling items. This comes a couple of days after a person was robbed while buying an item.

Police say a woman came to Wildwood Drive to buy an old phone she saw on the “LetGo” app. After she made the purchase, police say the seller took the phone back and nearly ran her over as he was leaving.
