1. Item verification is a SCAM! There are no such things as illegal, fake, or glitched items, it's a ruse to get your stuff for free.
    If you're looking for an admin's "trade assistance", stop and follow these 3 steps immediately or you will lose your items!!!

    Staff don't take private reports for various reasons, you'll either have to file a report normally and request any sensitive info to be hidden, or you can report to a partner community (pending reports on partner communities are not shown on SR profiles).

    It's fairly common for scammers to contradict themselves or lie in reports against them. That doesn't mean an admin needs to jump in and handle it immediately. We make no promise that we'll even get to every single report, so demanding that an admin drop what they're doing to look at your own report right now because you caught a scammer in a lie isn't really going to get anyone's attention.

    We only accept reports via the forum. For we can do a LOT more reports in the same time via the forum then trying to "chat" someone through all the stuff.
    There is NO use to send it via other means to a mod or admin here.

    I now know that. I am new to the site and even after reading the FAQ and extended FAQ didn't understand some stuff. I sincerely apologize to any admin I might of disturbed. I want to thank Sjru for helping me and walking me through "How to not be noob101" and being extremely patient

    scamming a scammer will still get you a scammer tag. I doubt he'd ruin his reputation for that.

    but... that's like saying once someone gets arrested they still own whatever they stole.

    he literally does not own the money, a simple charge-back to strip him of what he stole and for angel to either give me the money or the KE would work would it not?

    i mean f✿✿✿ am i going to lose out on several months of irl work because it's wrong to take back something that someone stole?

    Yes, you are, because scamming him back makes you just as bad as him and you will receive a full BANNED tag for it.

    I don't think you're fully understanding what he's saying. Imagine user A, B and C. User B promises to broker for user A with no fees. User B sells the hat he was brokering for A to C. C pays and B rans with the money that he should give to A.
    -Initial situation: A got an unusuals, B got nothing, C had money;
    - Agreement B sells A's unusual with no fees, as a broker, to C;
    -What happened: C pays B but B never gave the money to A;
    - A has nor money nor unusuals, B has the money that he promissed to give A, C has the unusual.

    I'm gonna leave it for a SR admin to tell what you* should do, if your story checks out.

    Edit: You and the guy that bought the unusual

    I'm the angelmander in question. I have no plans to charge the scammer back unless I'm given explicit permission by MULTIPLE steamrep admins and am assured by admins of community sites as well that I won't incur any punishment.

    Even then I'm somewhat hesitant to open up a case with paypal because I'm very worried about the legal implications of a chargeback of 1200 dollars.

    I want justice as much as anyone else here but I'm not willing to sacrifice my reputation or get in trouble with the law.

    I think this needs to be handled on the report the user made - if you guys wish to move all of this discussion to that report it would certainly keep things a little more neat.

    Hello,

    before opening a new thread I thought I'd ask my question here. I'm looking for a trustworthy middleman. Is there a certain way I need to follow or should I just try to write to the people on the list (https://steamrep.com/list/M)? Are there actually more (or better?) guys than on the list?
    I'm totally unexperienced when it comes to trading for money so any help would be appreciated.
