Is it ok to buy stuff from someone in a facebook group? WWYD?

Ok so on facebook I am in a group for people with anxiety disorders. This member of the group messages me telling me about a natural product that she sells and was wanting to know if I wanted to buy it from her since she is a product supplier/dealer/seller whatever you want to call her.  

I asked a bunch of questions, googled the product and has good reviews. Found it on Amazon for $41 and I'm prime so it's free shipping. I asked her how much and she said she sells it for $41 plus shipping and she tells me right off the bat that she takes visa/MasterCard, all debit cards. That right there felt pushy and seemed odd. 

She seems inpatient, I told her I would get back to her after dinner and she didn't reply back. Feels shady.

I don't buy from anybody I don't know. And if I can get it cheaper I will.

If it's cheaper on amazon I'd just buy it through them.

Don't give in to the pressure. She probably just joined to try to sell her products. Tell her you're not interested and then block her if she won't leave you alone.

That's likely against the rules of the group. I hate it when you join a group to bitch about husbands or get help with weight or anything really and then some asshat comes in and starts selling her Tupperware. Not cool.

Nope, specially since it's cheaper for you from Amazon.

I hate it and should go see what that groups rules are.
