    Summary:
    On a trade server, I watched two guys spycrab who, when I had joined, had already gone one round with Jahvid losing the first one. They also have a "middleman" in server who had in his name MiddleMan which I thought was strange but because it had already gone through once I assumed that he was safe. They proceeded to make the win conditions, spycrab, and Jahvid won. The two of them promptly fled the server, taking his keys and hats with them. [THINGS THAT WERE SAID OVER VOICE CHAT: The spycrabbing scammer tried to ask Jahvid to bet more saying "if you are going to be quitting tf2 soon, you should have a higher bet" and specifically making sure that the "middleman" watched them. Most of the scam was conducted over voice chat.]
