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!!!

    I heard that in some cases certain tags could possibly get removed say if the community isn't around anymore, and there wasn't enough proof in the first place. Is this true and how long would it take for something like that to happen?

    Hey. I was wondering if you can make a report on someone for giving fake rep on another person's profile?

    I've known for a while now that steam profile rep is worthless - but what are some good trading communities where I can start building rep (get a rep thread, if that means that)?

    Here's something that's been bugging me for a while:

    I often see reports where the scammer gets their item, then immediately removes the victim while they're saying "hey where'd you go" or something along the lines. While this is usually the case, how do we not know it was the supposed victim that removed the other user so they could ruin get the other person in trouble?

    So for example, I give a TF2/CSGO key to a guy so that he can give me a giftable item. Once I give them the key, I remove them, type in "wtf why'd you remove me?", then quickly snapshot it and report them. Sure I lost an item, but I also just ruined someone's reputation. How can you tell if someone does this?

    In your specific scenario, the biggest factor, and probably the most obvious, is when the accused replies in the report against them. Putting yourself in the shoes of that other person, wouldn't you think something is up? If the accused absolutely didn't follow up after that, then it would not end in their favor, but they always jump in to defend themselves before the report is accepted. Plus, that's the kind of case which would quickly get caught in an appeal prescreening. But nothing else we can conclude if the accused never drops in to defend themself.

    More generally, we have had cases of similar nature. Not always as blatantly fraud as what you described, but it quickly becomes clear the reporter doesn't want their items or money, and only cares about "revenge". Following the letter of our rules, a scam took place when a trade agreement was broken and not corrected. Whomever prevents the agreement from being completed is at fault, so in cases where it's undeniable the accused had no intention of scamming, and reporter refuses to cooperate, I conclude they got free items. Yes, that has happened. In your specific case, once the accused replied and gave their side, it would quickly surface that someone is being framed. It should also be said: Faking evidence or otherwise fraudulently harming someone's reputation will earn you a tag yourself. Only takes 1 time, then all your accounts are marked and then blocked from submitting any scam reports ever again.

    Contact "somebody" doesn't mean just anyone in the CSGO community, but someone who works on the faceit site. Nobody here has anything to do with the faceit site, and hence nobody here can help you.

    If you're complaining about the VAC ban, nobody here has anything to do with that either. We aren't part of Steam Support, and we have no ability to overturn those.
