    Impersonator, and fake rep it seems. http://steamcommunity.com/id/Siirindy is impersonting me, http://steamcommunity.com/id/Sirindy. Hes already scammed someone earlier today and isn't marked as anything.

    On another note, the hat that was scammed off someone today has ended up in http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198031207567 backpack in less than 8 hours, meaning that he may be directly dealing with the scammer. http://www.tf2items.com/item/1018648611 is the paper trail of the hat, missing the intermediate scammer but not showing any steps between the scammer and boschmann.

    A fast response will save a lot of people's hats.

    Also, http://steamcommunity.com/id/KftD was the person that initiated the trade with the fellow that got scammed and used the fake middleman, also not marked. And the same people are adding rep to the two people's profiles.

    Also, sadly I don't have any screen shots of the trade, it wasn't me that was scammed. But at least we have evidence of one of the guy's impersonating me still in his recent names.

    Sorry to jump in here. I was the person scammed.

    The three of them keep changing names and are all friends with one another. He picked the Indy impersonator as the middleman and i wasn't looking hard enough to see the misnomer in name. Im actually in contact with a friend of the current owner of the hat who said he'd be willing to talk to him and see if there's a way to get it back. I'm optimistic but we'll see where it goes. A forewarning to anyone dealing with these three people that they are / are not perhaps in cahoots, but i will update if they agree to return my hat.

    I do not have SSes of the trade but have owned the hat for more than a month and can easily trace the trail from myself -> Indy Impersonator -> Boschmann

    i spoke to the owner of the hat- we're going to try to get his keys back (20, he paid for the hat) and such, but he's not really part of the scam circle just caught up in it somehow. I will report tomorrow how it turns out

    The impersonator has already been marked, but we're still waiting on any screenshots showing a scam with his accomplice. Trade history, screenshots of chats, links to forum posts are all helpful. Thank you. :)
