    steamrep.com official middleman...

    he is selling my PBR or Unusual Platinum Baby roshan for 2600$ western union to s[K]ins
    steamlink: http://steamcommunity.com/id/soulchild_joe they already agree and the middleman is Ξm pkmn Y fc, they are talking about 1 hour then s[K]ins send the money, but it takes for 3 hours for him to send because he go to bank to get money and to go to western union... and when he came back the middleman is away so they decided to continue the deal tomorrow. but the middleman just removed him in his friendlist. and the platinum baby roshan is missing in his backpack. and he wont give back to the owner, ignoring his messages and wont accept his friend request. please help me and my friend get back the item. i trust this guy because he is an official middleman from steamrep.com.. so i didnt expect this to happen that he will steal his item. which is the UNUSUAL PLATINUM BABY ROSHAN.

    screen shot of trade history.
    he cant PS there chat history with the middleman cuz he delete him. he didnt take screen shot because he trusted that guy.
    and now Ξm pkmn Y fc me is not listed as middleman in steamrep.com

    Can you please get a screenshot when you click on the user's name in your inventory history? I want to confirm it really is that individual because he is frequently impersonated.

    Sir as you can see we are dealing a pbr, 100% im not gonna scam by an impersonator, if you know this guy better talk to him and ask if he can give his trade history screenshot. I already send a ticket in steam support about this and post on reddit. If he can give the pbr back we can close this case.

    What he is saying is to click the name of the trader that you have in your inventory history, for that go to Inventory, then on the top right corners go to "More" and select view inventory history.

    GotNotSpeedBro, I understand your position, but we deal every single day with dozens of people who say the same thing and get scammed by an impersonator (it honestly can happen to anyone). We take these matters very seriously, so please provide the screenshots as soon as you can so we have firm evidence-- all of our tags need to have firm evidence to ensure they can't be appealed away easily.

    That being said, so far, even without the complete evidence we asked for from you, it does look like this former middleman has gone rogue. We're continuing to investigate the details here, but we have marked him and raised our concerns to Valve.

    This is a really confusing case because the seller of the item was a scammer (with 1 month old Steam account), you are trade banned as well, and the middleman apparently went rogue. Very strange situation all over.

    I know of him, but I do not know him and he is not returning our attempts to communicate with him. Given he is now trade banned, the likelihood of "your friend" getting his item back is unfortunately not high.

    Sir, above i have attached a screen shot of the trade history and behind the steam trade history in the photo is the mm's profile at that time. My friend checked that many times before and so he is very sure that the mm is not an impersonator. Its exactly the official mm. But when he check the mm's profile now after clicking his name in the trade history, it shows this profile http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198000174003 and shown in the photo i have ittached. He is currently trade banned and set his profile private. Unlike his profile before, it showed that she is level 76 with Cm and Lina as background. Are you trying to defend him? Because it seems that you are on his side. Since you are all admins and maybe you are friends. I hope that there is no bias here and be just please. aaaaaaaa.jpg

    Thanks for the additional evidence/double-check for me there.

    You misunderstand. You can read my response above-- I'm not at all trying to defend him. I had already marked him as a scammer and care not for the guy. Yet, to be just, I ask for the same evidence in every case where a middleman is accused and 90% of the time it is an impersonator--- so we have to rule that out.

    I have marked this as accepted based on the evidence here.

    To clarify, though, you spoke above as if you are the one scammed, are you reporting on behalf of the victim or are you an alt of the victim?

    It is not listed as under investigation, it is listed as Accepted-- the profile has been updated as well to reflect that.

    I have no idea. Probably because he has decided to become a scammer.
