76561198004747769 (Poblo 129) Victim: Scammer: I hope the fact that he says right in this chat the trade that can count for steam chat window. When I was new to tf2 in late 2011, I unboxed an unusual villain's veil. I had no experience trading in tf2 at all. I wore the hat (not realizing it was anything special) and a day or two later (12/29/11) got a pm while playing from Poblo saying he might want to buy it. I told him I wasn't sure how much it was worth. As I remember, he offered 5 ref, but being the "smart guy" I was, I "haggled" for 8 ref. My reasoning at the time (this was before steam trade) was that ref was the most valuable resource and since you could only fit 8 of them in a trade at a time, that must be a great deal! (Yes, it still pains me to write this 2 years later...). A few days later I realized that there were pricelist spreadsheets online and looked up the price only to see how far my naivety had gotten me. I pmmed him back and asked to make the trade back, since I didn't realize my mistake. He turned me down multiple times. The rest is clearly shown in the screenshot, which I just found earlier today! I didn't know you could report tf2 scammers here until about a year ago when I started to trade more actively, but by then I had lost the screenshot. I have no idea if there is a steamrep statute of limitations on this sort of thing, but in my eyes a scam is a scam. I figured I had nothing to lose by posting this here and seeing if there was anyway he could be marked as such. Thanks for both your time and your consideration.
