    It's basically a middleman impersonation scam, but here's the long version.

    Scammer #1 (Zaigler ~ Joz) posted a trade on dota2lounge.com advertising he was buying immortals, unusuals and keys, via a dota2traders.com middleman. I posted an offer for him and, sometime later, scammer #2 (Vigor F) added me on Steam while appearing offline.

    Scammer #1 then proceeded to also add me, proposing a trade and asking me to add the middleman (he sent me a right link). However, before I could actually add the dota2traders.com staff member, but after I told scammer #1 I'd done it, scammer #2 changed his name and profile to match the one of said middleman, and then messaged me, impersonating the real middleman (note that I'd never even sent a friend invite to the real middleman, unlike what scammer #1 thought), in hopes I'd send him the items.

    When confronted, both scammer #1 and #2 promptly excluded me from their Steam and blocked my messages on dota2lounge.com, so I couldn't warn any more people than I had.

    Since I knew I hadn't added the middleman, I was sure it was a scam, but a less attentive person might have fallen for it.
