    Never thought I'd be reporting over 5 trading cards, but scammers are scammers.

    Trade was for a dead space 3 origin key - I made sure he was committing to buy before giving him the cd key - he bails out at the end. CD Key is therefore compromised.

    really?

    1. you having SOP TS means that you don't have to go "first", no idea why you did here.
    2. You did in this case without making ANY agreement or price known beforehand. Only asked if he was "committed".

    Therefore, as there was NO trade agreement settled before items (or in this case the origin key) where traded, there is no definition of a scam happening.
    After giving that code, you could have asked for any number of items/money/stuff, without any pre-set requirements.

    I cannot tag the guy, or condone this in any way. While he "should" have given some for it, there was no agreement to speak of, so negating after giving it is no use.

    Maybe you should read some training guides in the TS steam group, if there is any.
